Many people fail to plan for incapacity because they mistakenly believe this to be the case. The reality is that even if you are married there is no guarantee that it will be your spouse or a family member making serious, even life or death, healthcare decisions for you if you are unable to make them. Sometimes, more than one family member believes that he/she should be the one making those decisions. The result is a court battle that could result in a family feud that leaves the family divided.
