Angry Who is that old guy always spouting "happy wife happy life"?

Wife found a house she wants for us. Problem is I love the fact that our current morgage can be handled by just one of our incomes. This house my wife found requires both of our incomes!!
She said the house would make her happy !

I vote no too.....she might think the house will make her happy.......but having less money in the budget will spoil that in a hurry.

New houses "need" all kinds of little things like curtains, paint, landscaping.....etc. Not to mention if the house needs "updating", like cabinets, floors.......

It's not just the expense of the mortgage payment.....

Good Luck........

I bought a house to make my wife happy. 2 years later she quit making the payments while I was working out of town.
House went back to the bank and I divorced her. Never been happier!

If the woman in my house got everything he asked for we'd have house on 20 acres with character and a huge barn, Bones' old buggy, 20 project cars, 10 motorcyles, a dirtbike and snowmobile for each of us and a cottage up north ....while he was a stay at home "mom" to our kitties.

Thank God I'm the one that makes sense of our money.

What's wrong with any of that? Like I say, happy Kixx = happy Leah.

I must have misunderstood the saying. I thought it was "Happy life comes with with the second wife"

We've got at least 75 years until we get to your age when we can afford to have all of those things at once!

It may make her happy but that will wear off quick. I bet she was happy when she got into your current house. If you buy it, make sure it's for more reasons than that.

Tell her she needs to get a better job so you can still afford it on one salary. I think it's crazy in this economy to mortgage yourself into a bad situation. We lived for years on one income and didn't miss a beat because we were smart enough to think about the "what ifs."

In a few years you will be free of kids and wont need a bigger house anyway.
