The sum of our accounts today is actually higher than it was before we took out the loan. I think that's part of the reason why she's willing to let it go. But it seems clear to me that the HEL is the way to go...

It sounds like the calculation here is more about having it paid off and not having to deal with it anymore versus the future value of your retirement accounts, if I am reading that correctly? Because I think the math is clearly on the HEL side.
