first_imgWhen it came to his music, Prince was one in a million (okay, a billion). But in one other – very important – aspect of his life, he was just, plain average. Like 55% of American adults, according to LexisNexis, Prince didn’t have a will. (The numbers for minorities – 68% of black adults, 73% of Hispanics – are even higher.) A PwC survey even found that 30% of people with wealth greater than $500,000 don’t have a will.Why are the numbers so high? There are so many reasons. We don’t like to think about the fact that we’re going to die, someday. We actually don’t think we’re going to die (ahh, optimism). We’ll do it tomorrow. Or next week. Or the next time we travel. And then we don’t.In one sense, I’ll give Prince a pass here. He may have set his relatives up for an unpleasant to-do as they scramble over his reported $300 million fortune. But at least he didn’t leave any children behind. A will is the only document that allows you to name guardians for minor children. Not having one once you have kids is unconscionable in my book. continue reading » 76SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
