PNG, I believe such a thing is possible. But you can probably find someone - maybe a family lawyer - who can advise you on legal ways to protect the surviving partner in case the worst occurs. You might be able to get a recommendation for someone with expertise on this subject in your area.
Never linger too long with the ignorant,
throw stones at their talk.
Walk only with the lovers,
the mirror of the soul gets rusty when
dipped in muddy water.
