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.)culcha
