IMHO, part of the issue is asking and answering the tough questions and establishing trust. While my wife and I each have our separate and shared accounts, all credentials are stored in our separate Bitwarden accounts. We each have access to the other's account and have Emergency Access to each others' accounts. We have nothing to hide from each other, so if one passes, the other's information is an open book. YMMV, of course.

Also, if you have power of attorney for someone, be sure to get the usernames and passwords required for access to their information. Having it after they pass can save a lot of time and hassle.
