For Meg Howe, it's just always been obvious, the connection between love and houses. A new marriage, for instance, is almost always followed by the purchase of a new house, and that same house is sold like yesterday's junk when the marriage collapses.
Lately Meg has been thinking a lot about her theory of love and houses, specifically about how the first sure sign of a marriage in trouble is when the blessed couple start eyeing the real estate section, fantasizing about dream houses, or discussing home improvements. She's also been thinking about that old expression, "If only walls could talk . . ." Meg knows exactly what those walls would say: first and always they'd say, Don't paper me in brocade, but they'd also say, Marry in a bad market, divorce in a good one.
So what is Meg going to do when her own husband walks out, leaving her pregnant and with a mortgage on two different properties? Divorce has crossed her mind, but according to her lawyer she can not even afford a divorce. "I'm sorry," he explains, "I didn't want to tell you, it makes you sound so poor." Murder is another option. At moments she likes that idea very much, except that it doesn't seem quite right as she is about to have his child. Besides, the worst part of it is that she still loves the guy.
