@kay01:  Check out the elective shares for your state and make sure you give at least that to your spouse or he can contest your will in order to get it.  Otherwise, the most important thing is to pick an executor who you know will carry out your wishes even if your family disagrees with them.

A Living Will and a Health Care Surrogate Designation are what you want to avoid Schiavo.

I would want to give different personal items to different people, for example I would want Fiance to have my first copy of my favourite book, Pride and Prejudice. I have pretty much no money, but I have lots of shares so I would give some each few different people. I would have requests for funeral arrangements, etc. It is probably a good idea that I get a will drafted soon.

Right now my life insurance, retirement fund, house (its our house, not mine) and any large assets are all going to my Fiance. I haven’t taken the time to determine where specific items, like jewelry, will go though
