Prepping for a major disaster is no easy feat, but what about prepping for the breakdown of your relationship? Relationships are complicated. They require work and dedication to keep them strong and healthy. So when you’re struggling with the stress of being ready for anything that could happen, it’s important to put some thought into how prepared you are as an individual, or as a family unit. What happens if one spouse dies in the event of a natural disaster? Who will take care of their children if they’re unable to do so themselves? Most importantly: who will be there to help rebuild their lives afterward? These questions should not be taken lightly because they can have serious implications on both you and your loved ones’ life after a crisis

1. What are the hardest parts of being a spousal caregiver?

2. Is there anything you regret not doing for your spouse before they passed away, and if so what is it?

3. What does a day in your life look like, now that you have become a spousal caregiver?

Arrogance is a dangerous, yet underestimated weapon.

One meeting at a time.

It’s important to have your spouse on board with the emergency plan and preparedness. Here are some ways you can get started talking about it: Quick Navigation, Common Themes Among Non-Preppers. Over time I’ve found lots of common themes among people who don’t prepare for an emergency that they may not even realize! Whether male or female there’s a few things in particular we should talk about – Ignorance, Selfishness, Despairing Fearfulness; Arrogant Ignorers .

On one hand, it is hard to believe that people still have faith in the government. On the other hand, if any disaster were to occur and a person was without food or water for three days they would be devastated- so having some extra resources on hand could come as a life saving investment.

It was like the hurricane never happened. He wasn’t prepared for anything and now he’s blaming others, claiming that it is their fault because they were not there to save him from his own foolishness. It doesn’t matter how many times you tell this person what will happen if something bad happens again; he’ll always be unprepared and through with being a considerate human being.

Grasshopper and the Ant tale; The Grasshopper spends his time in the sun when he should be preparing for winter.  “I won’t sacrifice today’s pleasure for tomorrow’s return.” This results in denial of a coming shortage, or disaster which can lead to “despair”. I saw this trait as well so many adults who would rather die than face this terrible world after nuclear war because they don’t want to survive.

Bring out the best in people.

There are many reasons to be afraid during disasters or TEOTWAWKI situations, but being paralyzed by fear is not a viable option. Preparation has its limits and we can only hope for the best in these types of scenarios because there isn’t much else you can do.

This could happen here! Despite a common misconception, we are not immune to terrorist attacks. The severity of the attack will depend on how reliant our society is in electricity and oil – this means that if you live in an area where power outages usually last more than three days or occur every few years, then there is no need for concern because residents would be used to going without these conveniences. But think about what your life would look like should such events become commonplace? How do you talk with your spouse when terrorism becomes part of everyday news reporting? Meeting up at least once a year may seem excessive but it’s reassuring knowing they’re someone who has got my back during tough times.

We’re not a scare tactics company.

Discussing emergency preparedness with your spouse is the first step to maximizing their input, and getting them on board. The head of household needs to sit down for a short meeting together in order for both partners have an understanding about why this process is important, financial concerns as well as raising kids.

Your spouse is the person whose opinion matters most, so when it comes to planning for a disaster you should ask them what they think. Together we can come up with ideas that are more creative and less stressful than if you were on your own or working in isolation from each other. It’s important to avoid scare tactics because these create unnecessary emotional stressors within marriage–especially during times of crisis where one might be tempted not share their thoughts out of fear of being judged by spouses who may feel threatened or overwhelmed themselves! Instead, have fun brainstorming about historic disasters (floods storms) which will remind both partners how bad things could become while also giving us an idea as to how best prepare ourselves financially/livelihood-wise

You’ll be glad you planned ahead.

Fun Things You Can Do To Prepare For An Emergency


In an emergency, you might not be able to reach your loved ones. However, if both spouses know what they need to do in case of a disaster and have a plan for how the individuals will access their belongings when communications are down or freeways become parking lots then this can provide peace of mind knowing that if something goes wrong one spouse would be prepared while other takes care of taking charge with knowledge on what needs done.

In emergencies where communication lines go down and freeway lanes becomes parking lot areas it is important to prepare by having plans set up ahead as well as agreeing upon who should take control after unforeseen incidents happen so that there’ll always be someone designated ready at hand especially during times like these without any vehicles available but only limited resources

Fear is a great motivator.

I told my spouse about the results of a simulation I ran with an EMP event. She was shocked to find out that our lives would almost be like they were in the 1800s, but without clean running water and electricity for 5 years!

My spouse and I were living in fear of the worst possible eventuality. We were afraid that our kids’ future would consist entirely of hard times, but all it took was a little reassurance from me to take away some anxiety-provoking thoughts. After we agreed on an emergency plan for when bad events happen, my wife became more aware about how her family’s Achilles heel is not only dependent upon labor disputes or weather changes – food supplies are also vulnerable if something catastrophic happens. Now she knows what types of foods they’ll need stockpiled so everyone can be fed as long as necessary!

A great book to get you started talking with your spouse and family is “Making the Best of Basics” by James Talmage Stevens. It will help prepare for what could happen in an emergency, or even just as a way to be prepared if something does not go well at work one day!
