Just wondering about this?
I was thinking today - in my parents' time, the husband was supposed to provide for the wife. But now that a lot of us work, we share the financial stuff - but how far should that go? For example, shouldn't the husband take out life insurance on himself for his wife, if he dies first? Knowing what a procrastinator my DH is, I took out a policy on him, but my insurance company will not communicate with me, the bill comes in DH's name and I have to get his written permission to talk to them about anything. Is this unusual, or is that the way it works?
