Husband Wants To Sell His House But His Wife Is Strongly Opposed. What Should He Do?
A man has a property worth at least 25 million Naira in Lagos Nigeria. He is retired and financially challenged. He wants to sell the house and buy something cheaper. The property is in a strategic location and on a tarred road, something worth keeping. But he needs money!
So, he plans to sell the house and buy something not so expensive so he can invest the difference on himself and his family, perhaps start a business.
Unfortunately, the wife is strongly opposed to the sale of the house. So, she embarrasses any potential buyer that comes along. She likes the choice location. But she's a teacher with little to contribute financially to the family. What should this man do?Reply By Samson, True Love Advisor
This man should find a way to persuade his wife to understand the financial challenge the family is currently facing.
If they continue to live in the beautiful house and they can't pay their daily bills, what value is that to them.
Women can be emotionally attached to a house. So getting them to agree to the sale, especially when they have lived several years in the apartment, can be a challenge.
Nevertheless, in view of the current family financial situation, the husband should explore all peaceful option available to him to persuade the wife to understand.
The truth is . . . as long as the woman keep embarassing potential buyers who come to inspect the house, it will be difficult for the husband to complete the sale.
The husband should help her appreciate that they are in this together. Perhaps even promise to setup a business for her with part of the money.
Chances are, if she knows she will benefit personally (or financially) from the sale, she may become more favourably dispose to the sale.
