From the Paper:

"We highly recommend that both of you see a lawyer and prepare your wills immediately (see Appendix 20). We feel the key issues for you in estate planning will be taxation and beneficiary designation. Without wills, if one of you passes suddenly, half of the house belonging to the deceased spouse will pass in ownership to the children, if you own such properties as tenants in common. As they are quite young, this means that any decisions regarding the house will have to be dealt with through a trustee. We suggest registering legal ownership of assets such as the house as "joint tenants" so that the entire asset passes to the surviving spouse. In case of a common disaster, it is imperative that you appoint both a guardian and trustee for your children; it is extremely important to choose people whom you trust and not to assign both responsibilities to one person. The guardian should share the same values as you and the trustee should be adept at managing money. It should be stipulated in your wills that if you both die before the children reach a certain age (i.e. 25) all assets left to them be held in trust so they can become mature enough to handle such large sums of money."
