Most couples tend to love each other till death do them apart but one thing is certain someone has to die first.

@tboseZA Based on current circumstances, I think she should go 1st because she’s not in a good space to handle some the pressures we’re experiencing. But base on her untapped potential, I trust that I can go 1st – she’s that good. #WhoShouldGoFirst

No one knows what’s in anyone’s mind, whether they’re married to them or not. Conversation of who should ideally go first, and what should happen when one passes are rare in most relationships.
#WhoShouldGoFirst My Wife is working overseas has been there since 2019, only visited home twice since then. Now I know what it takes to really hold things down at home with all the time she’s away BUT I still feel that I should go 1st as she can really make the home complete

On listener spoke about how, when a spouse dies, unless someone is particularly bitter and/or resentful, those matters are the last thing on people’s minds. Maybe it’s on the mind of the rest of the family who weren’t in the relationship.
