  • No, but I do worry that DH takes his health for granted. His grandparents have all lived into their 90s. He doesn't take care of himself, so I more worry about his health than about myself growing old without him. I remind him that I nag him about healthy habits because I want him around!

  • Yes, I'm afraid to grow old alone. I tell my DH all the time that I hope I die first. LOL

  • Not afraid but hoping it doesn't happen. Currently, I'm a caregiver to a 90 year old lady. She is wonderful but lonely. She has TONS of money to take care of herself. She didn't have kids so that's kind of a problem. Being alone would be tough.

  • No, not really. I might feel differently after the boys move out of the house, but right now, alone time seems like a far off dream.
