    I find this a bit sad, that it is so common for relationships to be like this. Is it the wife being unreasonable to instil so much fear and guilt into the husband, or is the husband unfairly or selfishly prioritising his saxophone/mouthpiece collection above family needs??? Food for thought. I wonder in how many such relationships the wife is doing the same thing, so maybe just owning p on both sides could be a real eye opener and relationship enhancer.

    Fortunately I'm young enough that I probably only have to worry about getting hit by buses and things, but my relatives always ask me to help handle this stuff on account of my skills with computers and record-keeping.
    If you're worried that publishing the value of your stuff where your spouse can see it may actually cause your death, there are ways to password protect files and even entire folders. You can then put the location and password in your will and/or goodbye letter.

    Having such a list in multiple locations (or the cloud), along with some raw photos of all your gear, is good for insurance as well. The raw photo bit is important: .JPG, .PNG, and other common file formats can be easily edited and as such are not acceptable in court as evidence, while raw files like .TIFF, .CR2, .NEF, and the like are. I only know of one instance of an insurance company challenging someone in my family, but the company got a a lot more cooperative after being answered with several GB of raw photos showing them holding the stuff as proof of ownership.
    You're wise beyond your years. lol And good info. thanks.
    If you can't dazzle them with brilliance...then baffle 'em with bullsh*t.

Maybe I should write a TV script using that idea and pitch it to CSI: New York, Major Crimes or Law & Order: SVU if a man killed by his spouse for saxophone GAS could be considered a Special Victim.

    BTW, is it considered cheating if you love your Martin Comm III more than you love your wife? Would that be grounds for divorce?
