It's interesting that she really did delete all of her posts. I just went back and checked. Oh well, I wish her and her SO other well.

This may well be the case. She was overly defensive IMO.

Given her posts, I've got the impression that she is from a culture where man is the sole financial provider and woman's job is to support her man in achieving that. If that's the case, it explains some of her expectation and behavior.

Here are some estate planning links. Married or unmarried, kids or not, these documents make life a lot simpler in the case of disability or death.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a lawyer, but I do know how to find stuff on the Internet.

I went through retirement and estate planning with a fee-only CFP firm, prior to my husband's passing, in my early 40s. Neither of us knew at the time how critical that exercise would become. Not being grim, but sh*t happens and that preparation saved me a lot of problems.

A simple checklist...
12 Simple Steps to an Estate Plan | Nolo.com
A good reference book to go with that list...
Plan Your Estate - Legal Estate Planning Book - Nolo

Here's a great page on the American Bar Association website that has oodles of links. Scroll down past the webinar announcement.

Estate Planning FAQs | Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law

That should keep you all busy for a while.

Therapists make several hundred dollars an hour, I don't really understand why anyone would expect to show up here, where presumably the posters need to get some enjoyment out of participating since nobody is giving us $225/hour, and just rag on his/her so.

Ha

I believe I get paid by the posts after 1000 posts. I am waiting for a small check from ER.org. Well?

Oh yes, you will get three figures. Mods get six figures. Unfortunately those figures are all zeroes.
