One interesting tidbit about net worth between individual and household is that in the old times the household networth pretty much is determined by individual income (one income family). Nowadays many households have double income which create a larger difference between household networth and individual networth in general. I am single and always wonder what my net worth vs age rank would actually be every time I check on websites like DQYDJ.

We use household. We took our "for better or worse, for richer or poorer" marriage vows seriously.

At times DW has felt bad looking at it as "ours", as I have been the major financial earner and decision maker. I have pointed out to her that she created and supported an environment that allowed me to achieve those financial earnings and make wise financial decisions, so our NW attainment is just as much hers as mine.

A bit off-topic, but why not just have that in your current wills? DW and I both have wills that leave 100% to spouse, and, if spouse predeceases me, 50% to family A, and 50% to family B.

Then we have "gentle/woman's agreements" NOT to have a new will for the one who lives the longest.
