Well, the average 40 year old woman is gonna be working until she dies as a Walmart Greeter in order to feed herself unless she has a well-off husband who has properly done estate planning (dont they say in most cases the dh dies first?)

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.  Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

I wonder if that means only what is in some piddley savings account that hardly bears any interest, or if it includes things like real estate equity and 401k?????? Dont these people own homes or invest for goodness sake?

That's what I was thinking. In many families, esspecially those with kids, it is the husband with the better paying job with benefits so most of the retirement savings and pension are under his name.
