I stayed, while my husband was the SAHP. Day to day life was wonderful and the money was definitely worth it. Once DDs were in school, my husband started his own business, and once that was stable, I left and started my own business. [ Reply | More ]

Depends on what lifestyle she has now and what lifestyle she is willing to accept. $2M will provide $40,000/year in income, after taxes and fees. If she's happy to move someplace other than the big cities, she can be a SAHP on that income, or she could work while DCs are in school and then college to supplement it and live quite nicely in most towns in the US.

I hear you. I doubt she would do the something if this is on her account. I have never had any live in that abuse the system like this before. This one if really over the top. [ Reply | More ]

This is ridiculous. She is practically eating about $15 to $20/day if breakfast is any indication of how much she consumes. Has your grocery bill gone up significantly? [ Reply | More ]

So you spend $20/person/day on food. If you have a household of 4 people, you spend $80/day, $2400 on grocery/month? [ Reply | More ]

Is everyone else eating organic milk and fruit or is she spending extra on herself? [ Reply | More ]

Everyone has the same food. But she seems to consume the most for some reason. I also don't appreciate that if I ask her to make certain things for dinner that she does not like, she will make some extra dish for herself with all the fancy ingredients. And she would always dump out the left over food that she does not like (even if I would eat it) to avoid eating it because we eat together. [ Reply | More ]

It doesn't sound like abuse. It sounds like a normal breakfast to me, especially if you have a day of work ahead of you, rather than sitting on your ass like op [ Reply | More ]

How do you know that she has a day of work ahead of her if she is not doing any child care? And how do you know that op is just sitting on her ass? You sound angry. Anything happened in your childhood. If you give me your email, I can recommend a good therapist. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] We are running out of cash soon and have listed our place on the market. Meanwhile, we are applying for a home equity loan. However, the bank said that it won't be able to give us a loan because our place is for sale. Does anyone know if we can take the place off the market for a month or 2, apply for a home equity loan and put it back on the market? Would this work? TIA. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Have you done this before? Now that the bank knows that we intend to sell our place, would it believe us that we changed our plan if we take it off for a couple of months? Or would the bank recall the credit if it later found that we put the place back on the market again? [ Reply | More ]

Fine line. Either ask a relative or talk to a mortgage broker who can help you do a cash out refi. Honestly, taking a HELOC or another mortgage before you sell will cost you more money in fees and closing costs. Try to go for a debt consolidation loan or something to that effect. [ Reply | More ]
