If you knew you were going to die soon....
Who would you leave your money to? Why?
Would you want your partner to remarry again?
Would you set any clause or make your partner promise you anything?
My colleague and I were talking about this today....this is my take.
I would leave some money to my husband and create a fund for my kid(s) with my husband as custodian until they are 21. I don't think I will give everything to my husband in case some witch seduces him and makes him spend all the money on her! hahaha....
Sorry dearie, you know women and their power lah!
My colleague is of similar opinion.
However, another of her friend says she will leave all her savings to her parents. Reason being they have taken care of her and educated her. Her husband should be able to take care of himself! However, given....she doesn't have kids!
IF (and ONLY IF) my husband meets a woman who will treat our kids well and will make my husband happy, yes, I want him to marry her.
My colleague is afraid of this issue about stepmothers! Reckon we have been poisoned too much when we were young or have been exposed to too many Chinese dramas.
I did not think of any clause at first...but now come to think of it I would want him to make sure my kids still treat my parents as grandparents. Because for my parents, that would be the only link they have of me. And grandchildren are such joy to the old folks, after all.
So, what are your thoughts?
