Would you let the father of your GF/Fiance/Wife help you buy a house? [Poll]

Discussion in 'The Bar' started by Ridic, May 14, 2015.

?

How much help would you accept from your FIL to buy a house?

  1. Let him pay for the whole thing if he wants. :jew:

  2. He can contribute to the down payment but no more.

  3. I wouldn't accept a dime.

  4. N/A. I'm lucky to even get in the friend zone with a woman.

    My buddy is in this situation. I told him to take money for the down payment and pay his wife's dad back as soon as able.

    Personally, it would be hard for me to accept anything. Stupid pride.

    I would never buy a piece of property with someone who is not my spouse--You should tell your friend the same thing

    If anything he should borrow the money for the down payment and then pay back every dime, with interest. I would go as far as signing a formal loan agreement.

    ...if they are married, make sure the gilf is given jointly--IN WRITING--otherwise when they get divorced, they will try to scam him out of the money on the property division

    100% let him buy it he wanted too, as long as it was in my name and he was nowhere on the title, life is short, you only get one crack at it, if i could have something like that made my life easier it would do it

    chances are he's doing it for his daughter, to make his daughters life much better, in which case if i loved her i'd completely understand

    Or he's doing it because he things/knows you're a loser who can't buy his daughter a house on your own.

    either way, quality of life goes up, and life gets easier, and happiness will grow quicker/better out of that circumstance

    this has gone on for centuries and will always go on, i think its just an american thing for anyone to have a problem with it
