We bought our first house. I'm 30 now and I thought I'd be 40 and single by the time I ever got around to wanting to buy a house. At least now maybe I can retire somewhere.
The romantics of buying a house died off about the time we finished looking through the home and started into the process. Nothing says 'kill the mood' like the words 'sign here on the dotted line.' Except for of course unless you are getting married and diving into the perpetual fountain of love that will last a lifetime...hopefully. Other than that, signing papers usually means more work. Hmm, i guess it means that with marriage too. :)
In any case, we finally finalized the deal today and my husband looked more happy than ON his wedding day! little has he realized was that I am cheaper than a house.
