The reason I ask is I was talking to my brother last night and he was trying to pay their bills online. He's never done it before. His wife took care of all of it. She was very organized, wrote stuff down of the calendar to make sure they got done etc....................He told me he was having to learn how to do this and hoping that he did it correctly. He is a very smart person but since his wife took care of those bills he never felt the need to get involved. Now to be fair, he travels alot, especially of the country so it was probably easier for her to take care of it. My point is both spouses need to be able to pay the bills in times like this. I know that when my mother died my father forgot to pay the phone bill and the phone got disconnected. He never paid the bills either and just never thought about it. I've been after my husband for months to sit with me and learn how to pay online bills but he seems hesitant. For some reason it seems to intimidate him. I am hoping that this event will make him realize that he needs to learn how to pay the bills too.
If you are married do both of you know how to pay the bills? Seems pretty easy but boy if you've never done it it can seem very hard!
