Getting hitched or ditched and effect on a will is one legal thing that you really need to understand.
Did you know that the moment you are married, your individual wills are revoked?
This won’t affect many couples, as 98% of all couples I see don’t have a will! Which is scary when you think about the ramifications if one party should pass away.
If you die without a will, you are deemed as dying intestate.
Anyone can then make a claim on your estate, your bank accounts (even joint) are frozen and it can take months to finalise everything.
I strongly recommend you read this article about wills.
