Am I not standing up for myself by placing the life insurance policy into trust? My wife accused me of lying to her. I objected to that description. I told her about the trust before I signed it. I may have been a little vague about my reasons. But I was trying to avoid shoving her face in my doubts about her. When pressed, I readily admitted that I do not trust her and would not agree to name her personally as the beneficiary. She has raised the issue several times since then, often very emotionally, and I have remained calm and firm. What more can I do?

When you can see it coming, duck!
