    Well for their major asset her parents insisted they have legal paperwork because the parents provided the down payment.

    This afternoon it occurred to me that maybe in the long run it will be better that these two are not married for reasons I won’t go into and are speculative anyway.

    The big issue I see is who is going to pay for his care and if he ends up on Medicaid they will want his part of the house. Money aside what a shame this happened to this young man.

    That is a very good point. Here I figured his parents would be trying to grab any equity belonging to him in his house, but you are right that Medicaid will most likely come into play here.

    My Dad was diagnosed with esophageal cancer at 90. Had a mesh put in to help with swallowing, which he regretted doing. He debated between palliative care and treatment, decided to go with treatment. He died 3 weeks into the treatment regimen. He probably would have lived longer just having the palliative care, the treatment took so much out of him. So no, it is not always the best option.

    @IL, sorry to hear about your friends' situation, what a mess.
