Mine is that something will happen to me and my husband will have to raise our daughters alone. He’s great, but doesn’t show a lot of affection to them, or really make holidays/birthdays special, that is usually my job. Sometimes I wonder if my mom wouldnt end up raising them. It kills me to think about not being there or them not remembering me.
Anything you are seriously scared of or regret?

My biggest fear is losing a child. I don’t like to think about it, but that’s it for me. If it came down to it, I’d die 1,000 times over if it meant my children could live long, happy lives.

Besides the obvious (something happening to one or the other of us), that we will never get on our feet financially. That Darling Husband will never get a permanent full-time job in his field, we will never have a house or a family. We will be stuck treading water in our crappy appartment forever, just scraping by.

Money makes me extremely anxious. I worry about saving enough, spending too much, not having a job, etc. DEBT especially kicks me into panic mode.

I have this overwhelming fear that my house is going to burn down. No idea why.

I’m with PurpleUnicorn–no children yet, but I’m pretty terrified of Darling Husband dying and leaving me alone or vice versa. I never really thought about it that much before we got married, but now that we are, I think about it a lot more, and it really does scare me. I know we’d both be OK, but it’s pretty heartbreaking to think of losing or leaving your best friend behind.

Any sort of natural disaster. I get very nervous thinking about floods/earthquakes/etc.

I, like others here, fear losing my husband at a young age. And I also fear not being able to have children.

@KatyElle: Unfortunately that WAS my greatest fear and it came true 10 years ago. There is nothing worse and I do mean NOTHING.
Now my greatest fear is the collapse of the American economy, which I fear is a sure thing. I NEED my job to pay the mortgage and to continue to run the cat sanctuary.

If you asked me 4 months ago I would have said some sort of disease/natural disaster/apocalypse, but since I found out I was pregnant I’ve been terrified of Darling Husband dying and not being able to take care of me, help me through my labor, meet our baby and be around forever.
