A doctor and a lawyer fall in love. When a wealthy couple moves in together, financial conflicts quickly arise. You can avoid this if you ensure clear relationships from the start – and look the truth in the eye.

Ldear widows! Dear divorced! Dear homeowners! On my travels through Germany I came across a case that should be of great interest to the older lovers of yours. That’s why I fall into the house with the door. What should a widowed woman, 65, and a divorced man, 67, do with their large, debt-free homes if they want to live under one roof in the future? What may seem simple at first glance can lead to tangible problems on closer inspection, and for this reason I would like to describe the pitfalls of this story in detail.

The protagonist was a doctor and lost her husband 15 years ago. The house in which the lady lives is around 200 square meters, is located in a major city in southern Germany and is likely to be worth around 1.5 million euros. The widow’s other assets are manageable. She has 100,000 euros in her current account, pensions are 5,000 euros per month, and the securities account contains bonds and shares worth 500,000 euros.
