- Sell our house anyway, rent locally for a while, and try again in a year to get the court's permission to move?
- Give up on selling our house, try to get the husband as many classes as possible this fall and try again in a year to get permission to move?
- Just give up, roll over, and enjoy the squalor for the rest of our lives?
None of these options is good, if you'll notice. Option 1 takes away our mortgage tax break and probably puts us into a smaller (if it were possible) residence, which is one of the last things we need with our growing, rowdy kids. And we don't have great odds of winning to begin with, so we'd be worse off with this one than with Option 3.
Option 2 makes our realtor mad, leading him to demand reimbursement for all the cash he's put into the effort of the past 6 months, despite the fact that our contract doesn't give him a leg to stand on. (Is everybody pursued by psychos, or is it just us?) Plus, we need the money from our house to pay tuition or at least the lawyer.
Option 3 isn't worth talking about, but it would be tempting if we weren't both so stubborn and contrary.
Also, we have the option of suing Miss Mommy Thing for lying under oath about how she'd support certain choices of her son, which in fact she has done the opposite of in the past and again in the present. Yeah, but I hate frivolous lawsuits, and I'm not sure this one wouldn't qualify.
I'm going back over this test; there's got to be a "None of the Above" option.
