Survey: One-Third of Americans Would Rather Forego Sex Than Create an Estate Plan

A recent survey found that 57% of Americans have not even executed a basic will, including 22% of people over the age of 65. Interestingly, about one-third (32%) said they would rather go without sex for a month or would prefer having a root canal over creating or updating a will.

Here's a link to the article describing the survey.  One important caveat:  the article refers readers to websites that specialize in "do it yourself" estate planning.  Creating a proper estate plan comprises far more than just executing a will or other boilerplate document, so if you choose to do so without professional advice, proceed at your own peril.
