Elisabeth's closing comment

This type of case is uncommon, with it being unusual to have to rely on the commorientes rule to determine the beneficiaries of a couple’s estate.

However, this highlights the importance of having a written Will to ensure that your wishes are properly recorded and to avoid an unpredictable and potentially unwanted distribution of your estate upon your passing.
