And so she visited me here in village and asked for my help. Everything went on smoothly and she actually liked it. But on the night that they are about to decide, something snapped. Whilst watching tv, Damien, her husband saw a program about foreign land ownership in our country. To cut it short, they learned that if at any rate Jen dies, Damien cannot own the house and lot.
Fair enough, for us. Coz that's our law. But I also feel the concern of her husband. We'll that's unfair he said. In Ireland ( a tiny European country) All the things that they share as conjugal properties will be transferred to his wife in case he dies.
So what's with the protectionism? I think our constitution needs a quick fix. It's outdated and backwards. How can a country as poor as ours be so unfriendly to foreign investors? While other countries are trying to lure them to tgheir shore, we are doing everything to boo them out. How's that?
One bright side, Damien can own at least 40% share in a condominium unit purchase. Maybe they will just settle for that. sigh
