57% of U.S. Adults Surveyed Are Without a Will
A new study by the Rocket Lawyer found that 57% of the 1,000 people it surveyed were without a will. That's sad.The same study found some other disturbing data:
- More men than women (61% to 53%) don't have will, despite being more often the chief breadwinner in the household.
- 22% of those over 65, who should be at least thinking about the grim reaper, don't have a will.
- 32% of respondents said they would rather give up sex for a month or sit through a root canal that create or update their will.
- More Republicans than Democrats (46% to 37%) have wills.
