The issue is that as an informed spouse, I suppose I’m alleged to know all my husband’s property and properties, however he doesn’t inform me something about them.

Thanks for reaching out to me.
I perceive that you simply really feel under-appreciated by your husband, even if at your husband’s request, you could have assumed the function of a full-time housewife.
In my view, your issues are justifiable, as a result of as a full-time homemaker who is totally financially dependent in your husband, such ideas would pervade your thoughts. Maybe this psychological nudge is what you require to substantiate in case your husband has an property plan in place. Nonetheless, it’s essential to tread with warning to keep away from being misunderstood.
Other than discovering a solution to be financially productive your self, even whether it is by means of opening an funding portfolio that your husband may give you preliminary cash for, begin by letting your husband know that you simply are involved about what may occur to you and his dependents if something occurs to him, notably as you aren’t gainfully employed and are completely depending on him financially. I consider this will set the tone to your husband to re-evaluate your present place as a full-time housewife. It might additionally immediate him to think about the choices open to him towards planning his property, together with placing his will in place to find out how his property will likely be distributed on the finish of his life, and/or organising a belief to cater to your welfare and that of different dependents.
I hope I’ve been in a position that will help you out not directly.
