Default Save your wife or your boat?

Assume your wife tells you to sell the boat, and all of your gear, or agree to a divorce ...... which option would you pick?

Get the divorce. If you think it will get better if you comply you couldn't be more wrong.

Considering the wife owns half the boat and your gear. You’re better off letting the boat go. You’ll probably lose it in the divorce anyway or at a minimum have to sell it to pay for the divorce.

Either way divorce is inevitable.

Divorces are expensive because they’re worth every penny.

I made the mistake of selling the boat, then got the divorce. With hind site, I would say divorce.

Whatever you do, don't divorce and leave her the boat with a lien in your name.

There is more to this. If you enjoy boating like our family does, and the boating lifestyle, HER saying to sell the boat would mean she doesn't agree with my entire lifestyle and If thats the case, divorce is really the only option, because even if you sold it to make her happy, you will resent her over the years and be miserable.

I am outraged that such a topic would even be discussed. You know, this hits close to home for some of us. What is wrong with you people.

I'm not touching this subject with a 10 foot pole! Selling a boat is just too painful of a topic for me to handle. I need a safe space.

You must have sold the boat, not immediately replaced it....and be catching a world of crap for buying another one from your wife.

Got to say I am very glad that I owned a paid for boat when we got married. When I sold that one, it was replaced before she had a chance to reallocate that $$$ elsewhere like she did when she found my gun $ stash. Which was legitimately mine to start with.

Depends, does the husband party his ass off on the boat or is she just doing it to be controlling?

I think you are heading for a divorce either way. At least if you sell the boat you can say you did all you could. You can always get another boat after the divorce, if you have anything left.
