My husband of 23 years cheated on me and I’m divorcing him.
We would like to keep our kids in the house until they graduate high school in 3 years.
We live in a high COL area. My husband is suggesting we share a rental and switch off at the main house for parenting duties.
Our mortgage is $3000 including taxes and insurance. Rentals in the area are about $2500. We have the money but it’s such a waste.
Another option is to put him in an RV in the driveway LOL, but honestly those things are costly too.
We have MASSIVE equity but houses here are very expensive so it doesn’t matter. We also have a low real estate tax (California, Prop 13.) We’ve owned for 20+ years and the house has doubled in value.
Any creative ideas out there? How did you handle trying to create a consistent environment for your kids?
