Re: Unmarried couple buying house

If you are not getting married but buying a house together AND you want to avoid drama, you are kidding yourself. Even if you split up and managed to work out the finances on the house, the one that leaves is still on the loan. This will affect their ability to buy another house. Depending on the state, legal problems could be just as bad as a divorce.

 

Get married and buy a house.

 

Buy a house by yourself - except she is already house shopping so you are digging a bigger hole for yourself.

 

Rent another house.

 

or just shoot yourself and get it over with :smileywink:
