When a couple get Married (or a same sex couple form a Civil Partnership), the act of Marriage revokes (cancels) all previous Wills that they may have in place unless those wills were prepared “in anticipation of marriage”.
So, almost every couple that you know of who get Married do not have a Will the moment they sign the Register! This is quite disastrous, as, usually, the happy couple then go off on a once in a lifetime longhaul holiday or do something equally dramatic. They go on these holidays without the protection of Wills which is not the best thing for their families or friends.
You can help them with a Wedding gift that may not be the most glamorous but it is one of the most important. And after all, most people have “Writing a Will” on their list of things to do, it just rarely gets to the top!
We can write the happy couple a Will each using our online Will service (here) for just £49 or, for more complex family situations, a telephone Will each for a total of £99. All you have to do to organise this is call us on 0800 612 9165 and we’ll sort it all out for you.
The happy couple and thier family and friends will thatnk you!
