My in-laws found out that my husband’s life insurance policy through his company was a 10 Eli Manning New York Giants 2004-2019 Super Bowl Champion shirt. They asked my husband why it’s so much and why the need to pay for it. My husband explained that it doesn’t cost him much, and that if something ever happened to us, my 3 kids’ guardians would need it to support them. My fil then asked what would happen with the money if only he died and not me. He said I would use it to help raise and take care of OUR kids, and take care of myself too.
Then my fil well how do we know what she’ll do with the 10 Eli Manning New York Giants 2004-2019 Super Bowl Champion shirt? She might spend it foolishly. Mind you, I was sitting right there as he said this. Before I could speak, my husband went off on his father and mother since she agreed with him). Side note: I drive a 9 year old minivan I refuse to get a new car until this breaks down it’s in great condition and I love that we have no car payments either and I’m the frugal one in the family. My husband and sons spend the amount that I do every year on clothes, shoes etc. And everyone who is related to either my husband or I know this to be true. Also, I have a serious, incurable disease, yet which is not fatal. But I could be bedridden at any time and I’m only 40.
