with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
A will is one of those things that my husband and I knew we should get but never got around to drawing up until we planned our first kid-free trip…eight years after we we were married. Not the smartest plan, I know, especially because we have kids. And, the law in the province we live in is such that if we were to both die without a will, everything goes to the youngest spouse’s family. My husband is two years younger than I am and while I love his family, I love mine too, and there are three little people we created that need to be taken care of, first and foremost.
It was kind of weird to ask someone to be our executor and another couple to take responsibility of our kids, should something happen to my husband and I, but I feel so much better whenever he, or I, or the two of us travel. Yes, something bad could happen to us close to home, but I fear it more when one or both of us is traveling. (I leave for BlogHer tomorrow, which is why it’s on my mind.)
How about you? Marital status doesn’t really apply to this topic…do you have a will?
