A professional LLC is required where the LLC provides government-licensed services. No owner/member can be a person not licensed to practice
the profession that the LLC provides, because to do so is unauthorized practice.
The reason for this prohibition is that it would permit unlicensed persons to share the fees charged for professional services, which would effectively eliminate the need for licensing of most of the profession.
The typical means of getting around this problem is for your husband to create a revocable trust, name himself as trustee and you as successor trustee, make you the beneficiary upon his death, and then assign his interest in the LLC to the trust. Then if he dies, you own the LLC, which can no longer operate, because its professional owner is deceased, but you are entitled to the value accumulated in the LLC, as beneficiary.
This can also be accomplished via a Will devise, but then probate expenses will be incurred.
