Re: 3 kids, a mortgage, 8 years later and Happily Un-Married!!!
We saw the same thing happen to DH's great-aunt. She didn't want to get married again at her age (had a horrible, abusive first husband) and all that... but then her SO of 20+ years died and she couldn't make ends meet without his pension Luckily, family stepped in to help her with some of her finances, but she's had to take a reverse mortgage on her house just to maintain her life (she's in her 80s). One little piece of paper could have made all the difference in the world to her. They always joked about "running away" to Vegas...
