Mirror Wills are for people married, in a civil partnership, or living together, however it is not necessary for them or legally required that they make a Mirror Will, however it is more common that they do. Like a single Will they allow you to make gifts, appoint guardians, and deal with the remainder of your estate.
Mirror Wills are two separate legal documents for partners, which are practically identical to each other.
Partners mirror Wills usually leave everything to each other should one partner die, and generally name each other as executor and trustee of their Wills. It is advised if you are making a Mirror Will to add another executor besides your partner, so there is a back-up plan should you both die together and perhaps reserve beneficences.
