Why is it...

that people just expect you to buy a house. I dont want to buy a house. Ever. But all my friends and family are like "Your stupid for not wanting to buy a house and your a bad mother because you dont already have one." If  dont fel he need to buy a house, let it go. I have a good list of reasons that buying a house is stupid, IMO. The only reason I have for buying one? Because I could decorate it to my taste.  Thats it.

Does anyone else have no desire to buy a house ever? Or is it just me?

We wanted to invest in ourselves and build equity, and to leave our home for our children.

I own and am glad I do. Throwing my money away on rent for 4 years is behind me.

I think its foolish you want to waste your money paying for someone else's house, but whatever floats your boat ;)

To each their own! I'd like to own a house one day because throwing away my money on rent kills me.

I have always wanted my own house. I can't stand not being able to make it my own and feel like I am wasting money. In 20 years we will own this house and not have to pay a monthly payment. I can't wait for that day.

exactly. Apparently she doesnt see that when you guy a house your money is being invested there, sell house, get money back. Rent, your money is gone.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

I live in an apt. I'm 15 mins from NYC. Moved out of Newark for 2 years. Had a house near the ocean in Monmouth County. I liked it but missed Newark and my tiny apt:) I moved back to Newark in 2011. I guess a lot of people couldn't understand.

Would never BUY in Newark

I don't understand not wanting to own, but I wouldn't think less of somebody who does not want to own.
