Dear IL friends We are couple in mid 40s and plan to retire in next 10 years. All these years in life I have been yearning to live in a 3 bhk. May be emotionally I want to stay in big house.Our elder son is working and younger studying but in next 10 years elder might get married and younger might go to college. I am only child and wish to keep my parents with me. My husband is otherwise nice but whenever it comes to purchasing a house,he would go for 2bhk or smaller house. I tried my best to convince him for a need to go for a 3 bhk. But somehow he is not convinced. He would say something like we will buy when we go in 10 years or probably kids or parents wont stay with us so 1 bhk sufficient for just both.Why to invest money,its dead investment...blah blah blah Any suggestions?
