This article reminded me of our recent conversation about home ownership:

The relentless promotion of homeownership as the embodiment of the American dream has outlived its usefulness...we let a sensible goal become a foolish fetish. Not everyone can become a homeowner. Some are too young and footloose; some are too old and dependent; some are too poor or irresponsible.

I have a sibling who is the victim of the bank loaning them money for a house they could not afford. Life has taken some turns for the worse for them, and they are stuck with a piece of real estate for which they should never have qualified in the first place.
