Well, I was being a little bit facetious. Obviously, I don't want to leave my wife or my children paupers. At the same time, I don't want to leave support my wife's future husband's life of leisure.
I've known too many people who've worked hard all their lives to have a nest egg to spend in their retirement years, only to have death, poor health, or crooked investment managers rob them of the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labours. I want to see the world while I've still the health and sensibilities to enjoy it. Now if I can just convince the wife to trade the house in on a sailboat....
While we were in Mexico, we visited a Mayan village. Many people would look at what they have and feel the need to elevate them out of their poverty. However, as the tour guide pointed out, they are not poor, they just have simple needs. They have more money coming in than they need, from the sale of handcrafts, percentages on the tourist business, and government handouts. Thus we visited them in their little thatched huts, making tortillas in the traditional Mayan method, in the shade of the satelite dish. Inside the homes they had televisions, washing machines, refrigerators, and DVD players. The lived somewhat traditional lives, but they now had money to buy luxuries, because the things that they needed was provided, as it has been for a thousand years, by the Earth.
