The “If I Go First” Conversation
The Boston Globe recently published an article titled “First comes love, then comes marriage. Then comes the ‘If I go first. . .’ conversation,” which highlights the importance of having a discussion with your partner about what they would need to know if you were to die before them. This is a conversation most of us dread just thinking about, due to how uncomfortable we are as a society with our own mortality, and that of those we love the most. However, this is a conversation that is extremely important to have so that you or your loved ones are not left lost and confused on how to approach day-to-day tasks that the other had usually handled.
