I am not too sure how it works with the teachers benefits plan but I heard that a teacher has to work some certain period of time between two maternity leaves in order to qualify for life insurance. I am guessing the time difference in this case is a year or so, may be not sufficient enough. I may be wrong.

Once I started to work I had life insurance at work (not much but enough for funeral costs) then I went and bought my own to have more coverage.

I will admit for fire insurance I wasn't as on top of it as I should have been. I was at work and heard about a fire in the town I had just moved from 2 weeks previous. As the day went on and more details were released, yep you guessed it, it was the converted school house that had 6 apartments that I had lived in. The fire started in the laundry room and spread quickly. When I got home the ex had already heard about it and had a guy coming over to get tenants insurance. Never been without fire insurance since. The people there lost everything including pets. No one was in the building so by the time it was noticed, it was too late.

This couple was married, and intact. They were not seperated at all. Try to comprehend the facts, before making foolish statements.

My ex is still alive sucking 2/3 of my income away and I basically work and/or take care of kids all the time except for about a 4hrs/day after school otherwise there are in school.
They were not separated, they were married. And from the sounds of it, she was the primary breadwinner, or at least, her teaching income was a big part of their budget.

I completely understand... I was kind of kidding relax ppl

Happily married couple, wife keels over and dies, husband is overwhelmed so sad....

vs

Happily married couple, wife goes ballistic takes children and money away from husband, gets him thrown in jail, a life of servitude

so yeah, in some ways the guy lucked out AND yes i know it is a super inhumane asshole thing for me to say but its just kind of ironic that her dying could have been actually better for him than divorcing him and getting "what's fair".

Links17 is heartless, but his statement is supported by statistics. The 40% divorce rate means that only 60% of the people stay together and I think at least 50% of these has hell life together. That makes a very slim chance to be happy together.

Live a little, appreciate the irony and cynism.... you know what they say "bitterness is the spice of life"

I think this is a forum where I am allowed to give useless/irrelevant information.

Allowed doesn't mean you should, especially if it's about something as sad as this is.
