Do you think less people believe in God because of recent catastrophic world events?

Do you believe in God?

If you don't, is there any particular reason that led you to stop believing?

Do you think that you should be a U.S. citizen to buy real estate in the U.S.

Reason for my question is what is taking place in the San Francisco bay area & its severely affecting rentals as well. FYI some countries such as Switzerland only allow its citizens to own real estate.

So here's what's taking place in San Francisco:
* Homes for sale are receiving multiple offers such as a home last week that received 56 offers.
* Bidding wars are taking place where every offer is over asking price.
* A home recently sold for over $1 million over asking price [listed $2.9 million & sold $4.1 million].
* Some town homes are selling for $1 million now & a 2-bedroom, 1-bath 1100SF in Menlo Park just sold for $1.7 million.

The largest percentage of buyers is by far Chinese [approx.60%] with many being Chinese nationals who are not citizens, followed by Indians [California allows 60,000 workers per year from India to work here mostly in the hi-tech industry - ie: Silicon Valley].

Many of the properties are 2nd homes & others are bought to rent out. Rental prices are showing double digit increases yearly and are pushing young people out of the area [my niece & BF just moved to Austin, Tx]. My son & his GF just rented a tiny 1-bedroom for $2200 mo. and they looked for weeks. Houses to rent are non-existent & start at around $3500 mo.

So what is the answer when young people who grew up here cannot afford rents any more let alone have any hope of buying a cheap condo [$400,000+ will get you a so-so 1-bedroom condo].

Thoughts?

Social Surrogacy is on the rise.

More mothers are choosing not to carry their own babies in order to not upset their work life or 'ruin' their bodies, according to Elle Magazine.

What do you think about this trend?

My husband and I want to buy a house, but...

we do not gave enough for a down payment, and so we discussed putting in from our own pre- marital money that we always kept separate from our joint account. My husband said he would be willing to do that as long as we go to a lawyer and draft an agreement that the money we put in is protected in case marriage ever dissolves, like a pre nuptial agreement as far as the money we are putting down that we did not earn together. Does this sound like a fair agreement?
