Money Can’t Buy Me Love

Once upon a time, at a closing table not so far away, my clients sold their house for $950,000 to a woman who didn’t require a mortgage to purchase.

Between the time the papers were signed and all the copies were made, the people at the table got to chatting.  The buyer’s attorney shared that she was just finalizing her divorce, and was very glad that the prolonged fighting between her and her ex was over.  “It’s not like we had much that was valuable,” she shared, “but we sure did have a lot to argue about.”

Ms. Cash Buyer sympathetically tsk-tsked, then remarked that she had close to $1 million to spend on the house because she had "chosen wisely" when it came to marrying.  Turns out what she meant was that he was very rich (and apparently old or sickly, as the marriage lasted only a few years before she inherited big).  No one asked, but she explained anyway, that her mantra for choosing a mate was that "you can't spend love, but you sure can spend stock dividends."
