When it comes to buying a house,

I feel like I'm marrying someone I've yet to meet.

Don't know if I'll hate his family or want to kill his mother
(I'm not exactly sure I'll like my neighbors),

He might be high maintenance, or worse yet, snore
(I'm committed to a huge monthly mortgage),

I could get out of it, but divorce is always messy
(selling a house in this market will actually cause a divorce)

I'm hopeful, nervous and excited all at once.
Which causes me to throw up - but somehow not lose any weight.

We just got into our house a month ago so I know what you mean. But it's funny, cause the right house is just like falling in love, it finds you, just all of a sudden everything falls into place.

Good luck! Buying a house is scary, but it is so nice to have your own home! Can't wait to see pictures!

Great comparison. One thing about marriage; you can't ever change your husband, you can only change yourself. However, you can change things in the home you buy. Neighbors? That's another question. However, who wouldn't love having you guys for neighbors? :>) We're looking forward to more info on your decisions...... lv mil
