  • you are probably not the only widowed mom here. In fact, if you search the groups you can probably find a group of widowed moms.

    However, as of right now if my husband dies ...i would be financially set for a while. (i don't think anyone is ever emotionally prepared for that). And i know my IL's would help me, but i would have to return to school, and we'd be in one big legal dispute in regards to my DSS

  • Emotionally I will never be prepared. Finanacially we would be okay my house and cars would get paid off our bills would be paid off and the kids and I would have a years worth of expenses paid for. We sat down and figured it out because I know that if it ever happened that i would not be able to just go find a job, I would probably be a mess for quite while. My DH wanted to make sure that I could have everything paid off and have enough to live on for a year so that the kids and I could have time to adjust.

    My DH is a veteran so his bural is covered. I pray everyday when he leaves for work that I never have to use any of that insurance, he has a high risk job so we made sure we were prepared financially.

  • And financially, yes we're prepared, but emotionally, I can't imagine my life w/o him. I can't imagine our son's life w/o him. I can't imagine......
