Picking out a guardian for children is the most arduous decision you have to make when writing your own will.  You have nothing to worry about if the proposed Guardian is financially buoyant, however, the reverse is the case for most people.  Intending Guardian to your children may suffer financially if they have to take over care of your children.  At present they may be comfortable but what happens if either of them needs to give up work to take care of the child or children? Also, what about the additional expense of one or more children in the house?

The worst case scenario is that your child or their guardian may suffer financially at such a difficult time due to immense financial burden.  So, is it proper to leave a large asset to the Guardian to help them? Regrettably, this is not ideal because the Guardian will be put in a difficult position by having to decide how to handle financial matters such as investing and managing the assets and cash that you leave to them.  Also, conflict of interest may arise or they may face such accusations if they hold the money in their own name.
