  • Well, you can try to logically argue your side and help him see that the yard is fixable and everything else is to your family's benefit. If he has his mind made up, then you will probably just have to accept it and keep looking for another house. You both have to live there so you will both need to be in agreement that it's the right home for you. Houses aren't selling too quickly right now; maybe after looking at some others and seeing what else is out there, he will realize that this one is a good home for your family. If not, then I'm sure you'll find something else. Good luck!

  • I take care of the yard, not my DH. So you could always tell him that you would help with it so it wouldn't be so much work for him.
