If tomorrow never come….

Do you all know the song by Ronan Keating? Very touching wan.

So, we husband and wife had this conversation the other day.

Husband : After I get my EPF, distribute out some properties to the kids, take a few holidays, I can go already.

Me : Choy!!!!!! You take your EPF at 55 years old and I am only 50 years old then. I am sure I will still be very hiau. But if you really go liao, can I re-marry ah?

Husband : Do whatever you want la. What do I care wor?

Me : If I marry, I am going to find a rich Texan oilman. 70 years old like that, kind, caring like those old, old angmohs tourists. Got plenty, plenty of money. Cos I am sure he (pointing to todddler) will need money for his U. You said can marry so you don’t come and haunt me ok?

Me : But if I go hor, you are not allowed to marry wor. Especially not to young women ‘cos my sons can live independently without a mother. I already trained them well.

Husband : Then, I marry some old lady with a ranch. Everyday, I just need to count cattle heads.

Me : Can, can. You want to marry old, old lady like that Miss Ellie from Dallas? I give you my blessings. But if you marry a young one, I am definitely going to haunt you till you get heart attack.

Me : But ei, why you want to marry Miss Ellie like dat?

Husband : Who cares what she looks like as long as got money.

Me : But I no money, why you marry me in the first place……

Director : CUT!!!!

On a serious side, to those women who are married, have you arranged all the necessary documents, wills whatever? Are you the sole beneficiary of your spouse’s EPF? Remember that it is easier for money management if you are the sole beneficiary instead of putting your kids name because they can’t get the money until they reach 18 (or 21?) years old. I hope spouses’ relationships are strong enough whereby the husband puts all his money into his wife’s name? This is especially important if the wife has no income and there are young mouths to feed.

    Very important to get all the legal things in order. Everybody take care to listen to Lilian. For you children’s sake the headaches of setting up are worth it.
