Just push through anyway. For me it has always been a moral decision. I knowingly took the debt, I have the moral obligation to pay it back. We could have tried to screw over the bank by short selling our old house to my parents, but it wasn't the bank's fault the economy and housing market went down the toilet. I said I would pay them and agreed to the terms...now I'm paying off the $25000 difference. It sucks to see $1000 a month go out the window but I am living up to my obligations that I willingly entered into. When I look at it like that, it makes me just do what I have to do.

I feel the same, even if it takes 2 jobs, I knew what the terms were when I signed the paper and I must have thought it was worth it or I would have walked away without signing...It IS hard to do right ,but it is always right to do right...did I ramble and make no sense?????????

No giving up allowed!  We are within a year of reaching our goal, even without me being unable to find a job.
