Buy a house and become a prisoner/hostage of your state. Ha Ha Ha

LOL you may have said that in jest , but it can be true . I have a friend ( female ) , that got her house through divorce . She is not fond of phoenix , but is trapped there because of the property ( and other reasons ) , she kept it far too long , and now it would take a good amount of money to get it marketable . She should have gotten rid of the monstrosity right after her two boys left home . I suppose she could rent it out , but she is not free of it , even doing that .
