Second Marriages

How getting  married revokes your Will

· Marriage,Revoke,Disinherit,Children,Will

“People entering their second marriage should be told that they are about to revoke their Will and disinherit their children because you say ‘everything I have, I give to you’. This information should be given to you when you marry and it is a tough message to give at that time. Most second marriages don’t take place in a church and the official will be a registrar, who is a good person to give you that message. They could tell you that you are about to revoke your Will at that planning stage. All newlyweds should be more informed. It is easy to pass the message that if you get married, you need a new Will but no one ever tells you that.”
