How could she?

Unfortunately, a divorce would probably cost him the E Type anyway.

I don't understand how she doesn't understand his attachment to the car. My wife certainly does and feels it's as much a part of her as I do.

Perhaps he should get rid of the soulless b**ch and drive off into the sunset with a newer model by his side.

The housing bubble will implode. You cannot create wellfare by printing money out of thin air, not for a long time. Short time illusion, yes.

Keep the car, the kids have their own lives to live, and giving them money to shovel it into an overheated market is no good idea.

Only worth £80,000? Is he guilty of not telling her the real value of an S1 OTS :wink:

Will she be selling off her jewellery also and foregoing clothes shopping?

Divorce seems like a rather radical solution. However it seems to me like the kids need to learn that not everything in life comes easy. Sometimes your work hard and still don't get what you want. Better to learn that lesson now, I say. You're grown ups, your parents cant do everything for you.
