      in the military you are required to have a will,

      but honestly, the world ends when you die so does it really matter?

      It strongly encourages you to be prepared for the future, so I guess that would include wills.

      Everyone should have a will. Anyone with property should have a living trust.

      I don’t have a religion and wills are very important, including a living will.

      Officially, the Catholic Church has nothing to say on the subject one way or the other. It’s a purely secular matter, one for each individual to decide.

      In a larger sense, though, it could be argued that making a will is a "Catholic" thing to do.

      That’s because it would be the "Catholic" thing to do whatever one could to prevent family quarrels and tension.

      So if a will would help in that regard, then it would be in line with Church teaching, in an indirect sense, to arrange a will before one’s death.

      My religion never talks about wills… I don’t think writing a will has anything to do with a church…but like another poster says, it’s just common sense to have one, especially if you have children. In fact I would go as fas as to say, it is very selfish not to write a will, since if you have any property etc. you are expecting family to divide it after your death, and that will obviously cause problems, even family divisions.
