Quote from: DKG on April 20, 2024, 10:59:43 AMI am not saying there aren't circumstances that warrant the existence of social assistance. I am talking about welfare as a career.

I this hypotentical case, there would be a life insurance payout, and possibly a survivor benefit from Canada Pension. Any private pension contributons of the late spouse could accessed too at an early age. Social assistance may not be required.

It was my mother that was widowed who had to live on the savings in her bank book and it took a long time to get the life insurance and widows pension because obviously a spouse missing at sea is no proof someone is dead... and a life insurance policy only covered the new mortgage so my mother used my inheritance to pay for her new house...

Life insurance does not cover 5 people's whole lives. And if it wasn't for  a Labor politician there wouldn't have been widows pensions.

Quote from: caskur on April 20, 2024, 12:04:39 AMeveryone was starving back then... it was the Great Depression.

And no, the government should have provided food for the kids.

Yeah it was pretty bad avatar_caskur askur during the Depression. Hardly anyone had a paying job. Many people worked for free. But both my parents' families did OK cuz they had businesses or enterprises which fed them & paid the bills. So self-employment saved them. 1 of my Grandfathers had a business selling coal. The other had a farm & it fed his family.

With AI coming & a looming recession people will need to find ways to employ themselves. Working for others or relying on government handouts will be insufficient.

Quote from: caskur on April 19, 2024, 01:02:32 PMSo what would you do if you had children aged 4, 3, 2 and 3 months and all of a sudden your spouse who happens to be the bread winner died unexpectedly? Do you think you could get a job and take your 4 children under 4 to work with you?

You talking out of your arse.... people rely on welfare between jobs, or are involved in accidents or there is a downturn in the job market.... and there is no support other than the dole.


You do not know what your next curve ball will bring you.

You are a childless single person with no real life hardship experience.

Just give him a real life chance, Dove. He needs you. You need him. You two can be so happy together. Your bond will last in this life and into the next life. Its a love very few experience. Don't turn your back on him and each other. Its heartwrenching what you are doing to him. Please open up your eyes and heart to him.
