    I can't think of one thing DP wouldn't know how to do. We both take responsibility for everything. If he died the biggest thing I wouldn't be able to manage would be reconstructing any Lego that DS breaks. That is solely a daddy job.

    ETA this thread reminds me of one of the saddest passage in a book I ever read- an old man's wife dies and he ends up having to ask someone what potatoes you use in potato salad. Because it's served cold, he had no idea his wife cooked them first.

    Nope.. He wouldn't know how to do much really because i have done it all for the last 10 years.
    Before that his mother did everything for him because he was 18 when he moved out and we got together.

    He is getting better but this is something I worry about a lot.

    Yes. He would be fine with all of those things.. We share everything and try and both do things so we both have a handle on things. I know i could rely on him if anything ever happened to me. But i also know he'd be lost without me.. and those things would be the last things he thought about.. I love him so much. Xx

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

    I hope I outlive him.
    None of the above. He would be able to get her to a Dr but not the one I've just changed to (but that's fair enough cos he's never been there). I've shown him Internet banking etc but he wouldn't know where to find the log in id's. He'd figure it out though as he's not stupid, just reliant. He knows where the document box is so should be able to find insurances in there. As for clothes, nappies etc - no chance!

    He'd be fine.

    I have a filing system and he knows how to access info, he doesn't have internet banking passwords, but could easily set it up

    Yes he'd be fine with all the above. Except he hates Medicare and queues so I bet he'd avoid that.
    He would also never use our dryer. He thinks I'm slack for using it lol

    He'd be ok...not too bad. The bills and money etc no drama. Doctor, Medicare, yeah I think he's got all that under control.
    The household stuff it would get done...but it just wouldn't be a good as I do it. I'd be turning it my grave when he produced San Remo ready pasta for the kids' nutritious meal for the week.
    *shudder*
