    Were you aware that if you pass away without a Will, the State could  decide who inherits your home and other assets?

      i'm leaving everything to my bunny wink

      well, seriously though, i'm not sure that is the case all over. i mean, when you fill out stock forms and insurance forms and stuff, you designate primary benificiary and secondary beneficiary. how could the state overrule that?

      I don't have anything, no children, so no worries. See, this is why people shouldn't hoard things or money.

    I guess it only matters if you have family and friends to leave things to, in the first place.

    Then again, what if you die without owning a house or having much of assets to begin with? hmm

    lol lol lol

    In our State, the decision is already made.  We made a will, but really did not need to because the defaulls matched our wishes anyway.

      Oh, I don't think we need to thank him.  It's pretty plain that he was just sneakily trying to do a little hub promotion.

          Obviously this changes drastically from state to husband and two of his brothers were raised for ten years by their grandparents, who were in their 90s at the time they took over the boys' care (the oldest boy was four) and had no income. They lived off of what they could produce only, and obviously couldn't expect to live until the boys reached the age of majority.

          In my own state, if there are only minors in the next of kin, then all assets (or the proceeds of the sale of the assets) are placed in trust until the children reach 18, and there is a pretty extensive hierarchy of relatives that the assets would go to before there's no one left. The government gets its cut either way, they're not particularly gung-ho to take over all the finer points of disposing of the property if there's anyone else that can take the helm on that.

                Okay I looked at his hubs and you're probably right, that was uncalled for. Sorry about that Mr. Pcunix. smile

                  Apology accepted.

                  It's a cheap tactic, and he is hardly the only one to employ it.   I only mentioned it because the effort seemed particularly clumsy and obvious - he didn't even try to invent a plausible back story.

    And by the way, Angel:  stuff like that is what will keep your HubScore below the 75 you need to get "nofollow" removed from the outbound links I'm sure you pepper your hubs with.
