i know a 35 year old who is building a 780k home. she is an accountant and her hubby is a lawyer. 2 kids. grandma is raising those children. actually, grandma and the day care. that wasn't a typo. ...$780,000.00 and this is already their third new build. this is being driven by the wife, not the husband. how much is too much and when do moms put their kids before "stuff"
