Sorry about that... we're an opinionated bunch, and we really can't help ourselves. Also, much of what we say can be applied to other situations. Although you started this thread, someone else might come along and be in a similar positions as you, or as your wife, or as her friend. We try to cover all the bases so that others reading the thread in the future can learn from your experience as well as our own.
