    @sizzi09:  Would buying a house without you looking at it first be something he would do?

    That would be a pretty big surprise, and not even one I’m sure I’d want!  =  I would definitely want some say in the house we’ll be living in!!  Im’ gonna go with no, cause I’ve never heard of a surprise house..

    Whoa would you be happy with him buying a home without you? That would be like too much in my book. Plus, get yourself on the deed and mortgage to protect yourself. If your money would go towards the mortgage, you should be on it too.

    That’s exciting but I admit, I’d be super pissed if my husband did something that huge without me.

    I do think you may be over analyzing as the “clues” are left up to a vague interpretation. However, you never know! 

    Just as long as you are comfortable with not being a part of the decision; then I hope it works out for you! You will have to check back in and let us know what the surpirse was and if it was in fact a house!!

    @sizzi09:  If you would be okay with it then I hope it is a surprise house!! 🙂

    Most people need to save up money for a house, need both incomes to apply for the mortgage etc so is this something that is even realistic for you and your FI? For you to know nothing about it?

    sizzi09: Because a home is a huge purchase. I wouldn’t be okay with him signing a 30 year mortgage on something that I didn’t okay. If my money will be going towards paying off this debt, you bet I’ll be involved in making the decisions. Besides just that, I’m really picky in what I’m looking for in a house. If the house that I’m being forced to live in (because my husband went behind my back and bought it) isn’t up to my standards, it wouldn’t be pretty for anyone involved. There’s also the whole deed thing. All in all, this arrangement would just never work for me.

    When my parents moved my dad bought a house without letting my mom see it first.  12 years later she still hates it.  I would never be okay with my partner buying a house without it being our decision.  Buying a house is one of those big decisions that needs to be made jointly.

    @sizzi09:  WOW that would be a HUGE suprise. I know my Darling Husband wouldn’t do it because he knows I would need to decide on the house and am pretty picky about property! 
    So exited to hear about what the suprise is! Eeeep!
