What is the plan for him if something happens to you?

No. He's 24, I'm 48.

It's hard to describe it one word. Some days it's ideal, some days it's not.

He's high functioning so I don't have to care for him round the clock. He could live outside of the house but I'd have to help him with complex things like bills and household repairs.

I just recently started going out again(like once every other month). I was on a 20 year break lol

If something were to happen right now he'd probably live with my mother. If she passed as well, he would most likely move in with his dad. If he didn't want to live with his dad he'd probably get his own place but his dad would have to take over the bills(Ds would have the money but would need help actually paying them) and "behind the scenes" stuff that comes with being an owner or renter.
