    Default If you died...

    Would your DH/DP know how to access your online banking? Would they know how to pay your bills or what bills even need to be paid? Would they know who your insurance is with, or how much is left on your mortgage? Would they know who your child's doctor is or how to go to Medicare and claim money back? Would they know what clothes can't go in the dryer?

    I just realised DH does not know what Medicare even is. He has no concept.

    I hope I outlive him.

    Bills, money, mortgage DH would be fine.

    DDs doctor, immunizations, washing, ironing, cooking, DDs education etc.. I hope (and in all honesty know) MIL would step in.

    Yes, he can and does most of that now.

    He can't though - charge the camera, know what ham doesn't give DD a rash, tune the DVD player, log into iTunes, know what day the bin goes out, know what cat food the cat prefers, know where i buy bread, plait school hair, buy school shoes, change the clock on the microwave, turn on the oven, know what day needs a sports uniform/dress uniform/normal uniform and many many many more

    I think DH would be right with most things. DD would probably just be in some bizarre outfits!

    my dh is reLly good with that sort of stuff. but if i were to die now, he'd have no clue about how to look after sophia. he is absolutly hopeless with changing nappies and clothes and stuff. he tries really hard though so all is forgiven. he loves to play witb her and cuddle her and does that well.

    DH would have no clue. He doesn't even know how to access his online banking.

    Medicare he'd be okay with and DD's doctor because he works in the health industry. Generally looking after DD he'd be okay with. It's the banking and bills I worry about.

    Would your DH/DP know how to access your online banking? No, he doesn't have my login details, and we have separate accounts.
    Would they know how to pay your bills or what bills even need to be paid? He pats all the bills, so no issue there.
    Would they know who your insurance is with, or how much is left on your mortgage? He has the insurance organized. We have no mortgage.
    Would they know who your child's doctor is or how to go to Medicare and claim money back? He knows who the dr is, and definitely does know how Medicare works.
    Would they know what clothes can't go in the dryer? We don't have a dryer, but he would if we did have one.
