Yes, the existing will remains legally valid if you marry or remarry: marriage does not invalidate a will or such other documents as a power of attorney, a living will/health care proxy, etc. It's possible that they *should* be changed if you marry, since the terms you put in while single may not suit the change in your life--but there is no legal requirement to change them.
