Seems to me that unless this outflow of capital is of zero concern to you, you need to work on being a less silent partner. At a minimum, I would ask why she thinks that things will be different this time, and to show you a spread sheet with the detailed 10 year profit projection. You can offer her this one if she doesn't already have one ...

Thanks.

The spreadsheets look very interesting and very useful -- but I don't think she has ever used used spreadsheets (or would ever use them). (And I certainly don't think she would accept them from me. I suppose she would say for me to get busy and get a promotion at work instead of messing with this stuff ...)

As for the outflow of capital, I think that has mostly already happened. The train has left the station on that one, and it was traveling at a high rate of speed.

My idea is to get her to stop with the real estate completely. I think she should grow veggies and herbs in the backyard.

I am indeed trying to be less of a silent partner (and I think you are absolutely correct on that point) ... but she generally resists on the grounds that I am trying to "control" her (and that all I'm really doing anyway is trying to avoid going after that promotion.)
