DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

”Prompt: Your New Home”

Prompt: “Your spouse wants to move out of your new apartment, saying that there is a large space you both can move into. When you go to visit the new digs, you find it’s an abandoned warehouse at an old train yard. Clearly you can’t live there. Only your spouse just spent your life savings to buy it. What do you say?”

This really depends on how you look at the situation. As the prompt claims, “you can not” live there, but really you can. For the purpose of following the prompt, however, I will follow the path that it is not livable.

My thought here is that there are some much bigger problems if someone just spent our life savings than where we will or will not live. That is clearly a major decision, both mentally and financially, and it would bother me if my significant other were to do that without even letting me know what is going on. Part of marriage is sacrifices, but that does not mean doing things like this. As such, my first goal would be to go through an evaluation of our relationship, explaining why this was such a bad idea (leaving out the location itself in the beginning, but dealing with the secrecy of it all). Hopefully this would help enlighten my significant other about how what they did was wrong, and that I would never make a decision like that. Evaluating their response to our talk would be a huge part of deciding what comes next; essentially it would lead to one of two things.

The first thing it would lead to is if there appears to be no remorse. In this case, I do not think that I would be able to justify continuing on with the relationship. This is largely because it would be a hint that this may happen again in the future. Even if it is not in direct relation to a home, it could be another huge spend that is done without consulting first. My fear is that it could eventually lead to a decision that puts us in debt or causes other complications, and that is not something I wish to go through; especially when it could be easily avoided by doing the simple thing called communicating.

The other thing it could lead to is full forgiveness. If she were to be open to listening and I felt that she understood why the decision was bad, we could work on trying to figure out how to clear up the mess. People make mistakes; it is how you end up handling them that affects how you should be looked at. A single big problem like this can be repaired. It may take a long time to do it, but it is nothing that can not be gotten over. But this would also require the trust that nothing like this would happen again in the future, as dealing with it a second time would be detrimental.

I do know of others who have been in the same situation as this prompt suggests (not necessarily about a house, although a couple have been in that one as well). I have not seen any relationships destroyed by it yet. This in no way means that it is the right thing to do, though, especially with something as big as this. When you factor in the idea of moving to a new location, it is a big enough decision on its own; not even letting your significant other know about your choice or have any input, especially when it has a direct effect on their own lives as well, is wrong.
