This is supposed to be the new, improved, sane DW!

It was much worse before. Now, having done a very extensive amount of damage, she's supposed to be turning the corner and getting back on track.

I'm not even sure how to respond to that. 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:

Third download on the list.

Even with a good track record I INSIST on covering this info with DH and getting his buy in. Plus it's a good way to keep track of how accurate your assumptions are, and helps you tweak them going forward for better accuracy.

Best of luck,
