Also a post and run.
I posted this thread yesterday - basically, my future in-laws have offered to buy us a house in our price range, and we'd just pay them back instead of having a mortgage.http://forums.theknot.com/Sites/theknot/Pages/Main.aspx/wedding-boards_snarky-brides_would-this-4
By the end of it all I hated the idea. But wait! His folks have another fantastic idea!
Instead of outright buying the house for us, they'd borrow us the rest of a down payment (Ben already has most of a down payment from inheritance) and then we would be good to go on our own loan.
I actually like this idea a lot better. But then... we're back to me worrying about whether or not we have time for all this garbage because we're getting fucking married in two months.
I truly appreciate that they want to help us. And I guess they've helped all of Ben's older sisters in some capacity when it came time to buy a house.
I just don't know why we should need them to help us. I love them but... I feel like this is meddling. We're 26, nearly 27 years old. We're not children. At least I'm not. I will never breathe a word of any of this to my parents - my mother would have a field day with all of this.
Whatever. I'm out. /rant over
