Bought my 1st house at 31.........but 28 was more expensive, when I got divorced. He expected me to pay of the equity line on HIS house. My lawyer was good, but expensive.
I think it is all relative. I'll be 46 next month, my husband is 51 (Yes, we are among those evil boomers)..we moved to another state 3 years ago, I stopped working to be a full time mom to our now 8 year old.......so for me 40something is far more expensive than previous ages.....
You evil boomer you.
You ain't nothin but a pup! ;^)
But then again, it ain't how old you are, it's the way you handle it.
And I got to say, you handle it well.
