Okay, it's way past time that I update this sucker.
Spent some time negotiating with my wife over the weekend about how we might settle the financial issues between us. The idea we came up with was for her to take the house, assume the mortgage, and take the risks and benefits of whether she can make a profit by selling it. She had done some preliminary research that made her think that she could assume the mortgage given some limited financial support from me.
She wrote to me just now, saying that in fact, it would take a commitment of three years of support for her to get the loan. Plus, a ton of money down, and other things that make it just plain impossible. So, it appears that she'll need to get a job (duh). But it puts all our discussions back into limbo, because we don't know if she'll be able to get a loan.
She wonders why this process is so depressing for me. Maybe it's the fact that no matter what we end up agreeing to, it doesn't make any difference.
