Today's society dictates that anyone with children, family members, and  assets no matter how small, have a will. We desire to make things easier for our loved ones, yet have our wishes carried out. A will does that. Don't put that obligation on others, get yours done. You'll feel much better.

Just as domestic partners, pets and digital assets have made wills more important than ever, nearly half of Americans do not have one — putting the future of their families and loved ones at risk.

Almost three-quarters (71%) of adults under the age of 34 do not have a will, says a new survey by the online legal service Rocket Lawyer. And even 41% of aging Baby Boomers do not have one.
