About 15 years ago a friend of mine and his girlfriend were discussing the possibility of marriage. My friend pointed out to her that members of his family tended to die from health issues at a young age (let’s say 60’s instead of 80’s), whereas her family members tended to live into their ninth or tenth decade - so if they married, he said, it was likely that he would die before her. He said she got real quiet and pensive for a while after that; apparently the thought of her spouse dying well before her had not occurred to her. (FWIW, they have been married about 13 years now.)
How about you? When you got married, did you think/talk about which one of you might die first, and what the interdeath spread might be? Or did your thoughts about marriage not extend quite so far into the future?
