that remarriage cancels your Will?

In England and Wales (but not in Scotland) a marriage cancels your existing Will unless the Will is made in contemplation of that marriage.  This can be a problem.

 

Say you are married with a Will in favour of your spouse whom failing your children.  Your spouse dies.  You Will is now in favour of your children.  That’s fine. 
But if you remarry, your Will is not valid.  That means if you die next everything will probably go to your second spouse and your children will probably miss out on their inheritance.
