I've been married a long time and we both work so if something happened to my husband I'd be emotionally devastated but otherwise okay. My aunt, however, is in a different situation entirely. She's never worked, never had to, and has no real skills. My uncle earns all the money, pays all the bills, does all the shopping, handles all the maintenance on the house and his car, does all the driving, takes care of appointments for doctors and other things, etc. She literally only does the cooking, cleaning, and in the past, caring for their four children. Those children are scattered to the four corners of the earth now and three are in no position to help her when my uncle goes. Well, my aunt said it's not a problem but my uncle just admitted to my dad that he's underinsured and now sick with pancreatic cancer which will likely kill him (his official prognosis is NOT good at all). So my aunt's screwed when he goes.
Are YOU 100% dependent on your SO?
