I totally understand.  I can’t let go of my bank account for this same reason.  LOL!

aww, we’ve kept separate insurance for now, but he is helping me review my plan, since we hope to get pregnant soon!

I got really upset while researching my name changing options @ work, but not so much with thinking about my driver’s license.

Actually, I 100% relate to this post: my big moment of “I’m a grown-up!” was when I got my first health insurance card from my own employer after I finished school instead of being on my dad’s insurance as a dependent. Mr. Spaniel works for himself and doesn’t have a group plan I can join so I won’t go through this exact same thing, but I definitely understand how this can be a big moment and affect you emotionally.

Its funny that you say this because my open enrollment is due at the end of the month too and I got to thinking about my Flexible Spending for my Health Insurance.  I was going to use the same amount, but a light came on and I said “Wait, I have to ask fi, because we’ll be married early next year, and I might need to change the amount because hopefully I won’t need (BC) prescriptions!!”  I was laughing when I thought about it, so I was going to bring it up during dinner tonight!

Oh boy, I had a moment like that too, even just changing my tax status to married and seeing that when I look at my payroll. We’re putting him on my coverage as a dependent and it feels really weird from the other side too. I’m not my own unit – but instead he’s the dependent!
