They are ridiculous. To expect your soon to be ex to let you keep a high value asset so you can leave it to your kids in 20 years is really out there. I get wanting to help your kids but this is one of those just dont arguments in divorce.

Just to clarify, ex's debt and liens (including legal aid) would be taken out of ex's equity share. You wouldn't pay for that.

No! I do not expect the wife to let me keep the house for me. My son and I live in it at the moment he has a low paying job and could not afford to live anywhere on his own. I even suggested to the wife that we live in the same house but in different bedrooms as we don't really need extra money but she doesn't like the idea. She wants to be single, alone and wants her money and I understand that legally she's entitled to that.

You and your son could rent something together.

While you may have feelings about your ex wifes motives they are irrelevant and unhelpful. She could have the feeling that she tried for years and just cant do it anymore. The kids are grown and her responsibilities are done. Its unfair for you to judge her for her decisions or seek to punish her for what she wants to do. Many marriages break up once the kids are grown as one spouse may feel they have paid their dues and just want to be free of it.

Your kids are adults and need to learn how to live on their own and without support from mom and dad. If YOU can afford to continue to house your son, good for you, but he is an adult and needs to take responsibility for himself. You arent doing him any favours by continuing to support him. Perhaps he may be able to find a better paying job if he had to live elsewhere or he may have the freedom to apply for something else with your encouragement. In the end, you all have to do whats best within the situation. Your ex should be able to move on with her life without any additional weights holding her back.
