if it is the physical structure of the type of house one lives in that makes one's life better or worse, then your life already sucks!
i heard the stupidest question come out of a real live lawyer’s mouth this week (now she did ask me others that cut to the core because of their truth and others that were just ludicrous if she knew me but of course she doesn’t know me and she really doesn’t give a crap about me or her client; it’s just a job about asset procurement and securement; it is not about protecting her clients heart or soul; it is about money or at least she made it so).
anyway, the stupidest one she asked me was if my life was “better” for having lived in the house i lived in for 17 years. better than what? it is just a stupid question. my life wouldn’t be better or worse because of the house i live in; it would just be different (this assumes it actually provides shelter from environmental elements).
if it is the physical structure of the type of house one lives in that makes one’s life better or worse, then your life already sucks!
even if i evaluate my home in terms of the love and stresses that resided within, was my life “better than” because of it? better than what? i know i was loved and that i loved, i know there was stress and hurts. so was my life better for being in that home? better than what? there was love. so if i lived in a different home, i would just say my life would be different, i would be different. wouldn’t i take love where ever i go, even imperfect love. life would suck if i didn’t have and give love.
so no, i don’t think i should have to pay him for the 17 years i lived in our house because my life was “better then” for having lived there as his lawyer says i should.0
