Does a Husband and Wife Need a Will?
A husband and wife may have joint wills or separate wills. If you have a spouse or are getting married soon, consider creating a will.
What is a Joint Will?
Married couples may opt for creating a joint will -- this means that there will be one will for two people. Joint wills contain specific wishes regarding what should happen after one spouse dies and what should happen next when the second spouse dies. Typically, when one spouse dies, that spouse’s estate goes to the surviving spouse. When the surviving spouse passes on, the estate will go to the children.
