Mr Cinical: In property law class, I learnt all about who is considered next-of-kin and about writing up wills.
Me: So am I considered your next-of-kin?
Mr Cinical: Typically, the spouse is.
Me: Which means I get all your assets if you die….
Mr Cinical: And that’s that why we were taught how to draw up wills, in the event that I do not want you to have all my assets. So the main learning point for you is that you should be nice to me.
