Make a will
However much we may shy away from the idea, one day we shall die! Indeed 2/3 of all marriage only end with the death of one partner. Making a will need not be seen as a depressing or miserable thought, indeed ensuring that in the event of our death our loved ones are cared for in the best possible way is both loving and prudent. This is especially true at times of change in life, including the arrival of new members of your family!
Wills are often seen as the aspect of our lives which can be put off until later; the thing we do not really want to think about. Fewer than a third of us have taken the trouble to make a will leaving it for our families after our death to guess at what we had intended or, even worse, to feel aggrieved at the outcome.
There are a variety of forms of will that you can purchase and download from Desk Top Lawyer which can be used for most of the circumstances you are likely to face.
Talking about death, and facing into some of the life choices the surviving partner and/or dependants must face, can actually be a good way of strengthening our relationship. It is often said "You don't know what you've got till it's gone"; contemplating that reality, and recognising the value there is in your relationship can deeply strengthen the love you feel for those around you - don't leave it too late!
