Forever houses | Koehler Law

My spouse has a background of agreeing to rent or purchase the first position we go to whenever we are searching for a area to stay.  

This is great, she claims.  We will get it.

No, no, no, I react.  We just cannot choose the initially put we see. 

But we do.  I check out all the other sites on my very own and then make a decision, ok, my wife is likely appropriate.  

If it is not the fantastic dwelling objectively speaking, it is the great location for us.  

As my sister Mary Anne has put it, it is not as if points happen for a rationale.  It is that issues take place and we locate a explanation.


More than 40 decades ago my wife and I sat in the living room of her group residence in Georgetown.  

We experienced been seeing each and every other for about 4 months at the time.

My spouse said she constantly seen her lifetime heading just one way.  Now she understood that, obtaining satisfied me, her life was heading to be different. She understood now that she was heading to invest the rest of her existence with me.

This was information to me.  I was content to listen to it.  

My spouse states that she has changed all the things in her existence but her partner.

I am also grateful for this. 


My spouse and I have now lived in 15 destinations alongside one another.  We have owned 7 of them.  

The 2nd to previous household we purchased, I stood with the realtor on the entrance garden of the 1st household on our agenda and informed her, even right before we stepped into the dwelling, that we ended up going to purchase that house.  

We did invest in that house.

We lived there for a calendar year just before we purchased our most modern home.  And we purchased this very last property – our endlessly dwelling, the just one we approach to die in – devoid of my spouse at any time having stepped foot in it.

I monitored the residence listings.  I contacted the real estate agent.  I visited the house with the realtor.  And I negotiated the deal.  

The very first time my spouse ever saw the house was at the inspection the day before we shut.  

This is great, she mentioned as we drove down the road with the house coming into perspective.  Good finding, she told me.
