Episode Recap – Marriage or Mortgage: “Out of the Friendzone”

by | Mar 12, 2021

Early/mid 20s, “friendzone” dude, over the course of like 7 years, overcame her defenses and became her man.

Reality TV, so they’re both physically attractive. She’s a personal trainer, he’s a basketball coach.

Their parents are giving them a huge chunk of change, and they can use it for a down payment or a wedding. His mom was a Realtor, he wants #homeownership. She wants a big pretty #wedding.

They consider their options!!!

They aren’t total idiots, so they got #preapproved with a loan officer before tryin to look at houses. Did you know that we do not charge for preapprovals? That’s right, preapproval with us is #free!

So, yeah, they met with both a Realtor and a wedding planner.

The #weddingplanner pitched them on a bunch of dumb things like a #donutwall instead of a cake, and a wedding #icesculpture with a hole through it that would let guests drink #booze out of the bride’s ice sculpture butt (no joke…). The wedding planner spent all but $650 of the allocated budget (innit funny how that worked out?), and tried to make that sound like a good thing.

The Realtor showed them a series of sensible homes, mostly below their maximum budget, likely to increase in value over time, with some reasonable compromises in terms of wants and needs. A killer shower was super important to him! 2 of the 3 had killer bathrooms, 1 was a dud.


These people picked the wedding!!! With the donut wall and drinking booze from the bride’s ice sculpture butt, over homeownership. There may also have been something about a venue and music. Whatever. THIS DOES NOTE BODE WELL FOR THEIR CHILDRENS’ FINANCIAL FUTURE!!! They don’t have to get divorced to get a mortgage, but who knows!

Hey, so that’s my recap! I do have a question in closing, however, for you my dear reader. Do you want to buy or refinance a home in California, or would you prefer to drink booze out of an ice sculpture’s butt? Either way, let’s chat!
