What is the ex's motive???

Hi everyone

Can anyone explain to me why the ex announces this evening he wants to take out life insurance on me when we have not gone out for almost a year and just incase something happens to me???

What is his real motive or am I reading something more into his loving sweet nature (sigh if only but far from the truth! ) where when we were going out he threatened to have me and the children become part of the foundations to the patio?

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated

a) To wind you up.
b) To cover any joint liabilities you still may have.

If b) doesn't apply, then I can only think of a).

Simple- say to give your consent (I don't believe you can willy-nilly take out life insurance on other people), you will require the policy to written 'in trust' for the children so they will be the only beneficiaries! And you will be leaving full details with your solicitor. You won't hear any more of it.
He doesn't sound very nice, but it is all a wind up. People do funny things to each other in a divorce situation.

If You live in the UK and have no joint debt or business interests then this is most certainly a wind up(but why?) as there would be no "insurable interest"between You which make such a policy null and void(I used to be in the industry)

Hmmmmm, check under your car for that tell tale pool of brake fluid, don't take anything electrical into the bathroom and completely wash that hand held husband replacement with a good antibacterial soap and very hot water.

" Hand held Husband replacement ". Would that be a credit card ?

If he has threatened to put you in the patio I would take it further. Are you in the UK?

Would you add decking? To the back of the patio? Nah! Eats up too much of the garden.

Matkat, the insurable interest could be having to look after the children if she pops it.

There is no way of knowing what her Will will contain; she could have left the house and all savings to Dr Barnardos. I know the trustee for the kids could challenge that but most charities will fight such a challenge...

In the absence of children, or joint liabilities, I can't think of any reason for this.
