BordLyron,

Yes.

Both should have one and they should include the instance that you both die. What do you want to happen then?

Talk with someone to be executor and make sure they are named.

Living wills, various durable powers of attorney and letters to deal with medical issues. Do you want all the heroic measures, pull the plug under certain circumstances or have someone make a decision based upon circumstances and knowing your wishes?

Depending on estate size and your state laws, other measures maybe prudent.

A little lawyer time could answer the questions for your circumstances and insure you have the right documents to protect all your and DW's interests.
