Regardless of your age or marital status, and whether you are childless or the head of a large household, preparing a will is an essential, responsible step for every adult to take. In addition to giving you great peace of mind, you are providing a roadmap for your loved ones, who won't have to make important decisions about your assets or personal responsibilities on their own.
