My parents had discussed death. At their old age. After it was found that my fathers haemoglobin production was almost nil. The doctors could not figure out why and my father knew he would not be able to survive for long on borrowed blood. So my parents made plans for whoever survived. But why is it that we dont plan for eventualities at a younger age? My husband being a man of my choice, I had imagined a list of things that could go wrong in my marriage and had sort of worked out what I should do if something did. Thankfully my imaginations remained just that.
When my husband was in hospital recently, I wondered why I hadnt thought of sickness. We had never planned for our sons future, if something were to happen to either of us. A friend in Canada told me that they have to prepare a will for their children, mentioning to whose care they should go, in case of an eventuality. I dont know if any such law exists here. So young or old, I think its our responsibility to decide a future course of action especially when the wifes not working - regarding the children, financial position, place of residence, etc. in case of an emergency.
