If a married man dies should his family( brothers and parents)take on his responsibilities that he had while alive? Financially supporting his wife and kids, chores around the house and child care.Im all for helping family out, but I feel this is to much.I know someone that thinks this way.

A nice gesture.

Not a responsibility or obligation.

Bible literalists tend to think that way.

For a month or so after the death....yea. After that they should still help some but the wife should step up and.start taking.responsibility.

Some temporary support and assistance would be great if it were possible and affordable, but I don't think it's an obligation or responsibility.

It is not their responsibility or obligation but the assistance would probably be appreciated.

To an extent I think people should help out, but what you are describing sounds extreme.

This is where polygamy came from I believe. The idea of taking in your deceased brother's wife.

Uh no I think that's what life insurance is for. Responsible people set those plans up while they are still living.
