Re: young people don't buy cars and homes anymore?

Well, I rent long term and I save money and time while doing so. I think if you are one of those folks willing to do all home maintenance yourself, then it may not be such an issue, but I was not. I pay less for this house than my house payment was, and I never have to snake the potty or cal, a repa...

Re: smaller home can = better lifestyle.

I would simply say that down sizing and minimalism are not the same thing. I downsized and kept most of my stuff. But I left yard work and home maintenance and steps behind.

Re: Parents: more people who want other people to pay for them.

this sounds like a toxic relationship to say the least, that they would have said this twenty years ago. I agree that there is much more going on here. Ill add here that if he is military or government, ALL of his retirement pension should not be going to the previous wife, some yes, but not all. If...
