Yes, I know this is yet another slippery slope, but believe me when I say that no matter how rational you think you are now, there is no guarantee of how you will behave later as the physical and emotional stresses of aging take over.

I was the youngest of four and my father died when I was 25(my sister followed when I was 27). I somehow became responsible for my mother after my father's death and stayed that way until her death in my early 50s(a couple of years before my husband became ill and died).

Because all of this(and almost losing my daughter a years or so after my husband), I have gone with doing the best I can do and just living my life to the fullest. I know nothing is guaranteed. I'm not going to spend time in machinations over laws that could change and if I die in cardboard box on the street - oh well.
