How to spend an unreasonable amount of money

A fellow insurance advisor tells a story worth its weight in paperwork for those with eyes to hear and ears to see:

***

“Wife admits cheating and announces she’s leaving and moving in with him. Husband goes outside and shoots himself. Life (insurance) covers suicide if policy is in force longer than 2 years. She gets several hundred thousand, goes on vacations with new husband, buys a house and RV. They had two kids and she blew all the money, didn’t put anything away for college or anything for the kids. I guess they had a new house but the whole thing was very sad.”

***

Yikes.

That’s sadder than Elizabeth Warren’s Twitter tirade against Trump.

Sadder than Scott Baio’s career.

Why, that’s sadder than finding out Santa Claus is more real than Kim Kardashian’s lips.

OK, but seriously, it’s pretty damn lame to die and leave all your savings to a spouse who cheated on you or… a charity that you later find out scams people or… a worthless relative who squanders your legacy.

Want to know how to protect yourself while also spending an unreasonable amount of money if or when you decide to retire?
