Seeing the prices that the government considers 'affordable' today made me think that emigration is the better option. That or we really are living in low wage Ireland.
That's the situation I'm in now. I have a good job and could probably buy something soon but when I look at what I could get for my money abroad and the lifestyle I could have, it's hard to justify staying here.
Should we all be polygamous now? What's the official line the church is taking? Only the farm takes up most of the day and at night I just like a cup of tea. I might not be able to devote myself full time to the old polygamy.
I bet the Greeks are behind this.
And one of them could leave school at 15 to get a job and start saving for a deposit.
15 is a bit late really don’t you think? I think as soon as you have the communion and confirmation money in the bank you need to start working then
So I'll have to disappoint two women now?
A friend of mine and his missus both have great jobs in Dublin and the bank will only give them 350 ( still a ton of money ) because they’re both 38 now and time is against them
Holy fuck don't say that.
I mean my flatmate has already said he can happily give myself and my partner a good bit towards the deposit if it means he doesn't have to rent on his own, and we aren't even dating him! Works out cheaper for him in the long run
Honestly not surprising but ridiculous it has got to that point. A single person on say €50K in Dublin would need about a €200K deposit for a €350-€400K house…and to save that deposit paying maybe €1K in rent a month
Back to Lisdoonvarna
Not sure Christy can save us
Monogamy? In *this* economy?
This will only work if your third partner is a financial institution.
well, this burly banking institution has been fucking my friends and I on and off for decades, would that work?
I mean it's Been obvious this was their endgame for a while now.
First voting in same sex marriage. Which I'm totally for.
Next Getting into a big all male threeway in the dáil.
And NOW THIS?!?
It's all been part of their master plan
by 2050 we'll all be climbing onto the "fuckpile" in the co-living space to sleep and keep warm from body heat.
which sounds awesome until you realize i'll be 70 by then and it'll make everyone uncomfortable.
The grin on that guys face
Clearly in the honey moon phase, wait till one feels left out OR they gang up on you (not in the good way) when it goes wrong it will be big…
Sure it would make the ole required stints of homosexuality easier!
I've no problem moving in an extra girlfriend for the cause. My fiance might need convincing, take it to the polls she can't blame me for legislation surely
kiss my homies goodnight in our one big house
I just find it really irritating that the world is essentially designed for couples. Why just because I prefer being single should I have to spend my life renting? Even buying an apartment on one average wage is a huge stretch, never mind a house.
It's designed for the well-off/rich, anyone that tells you otherwise is probably Fine Gael.
Your man is punching…. God bless him !
**In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the house. Then when you get the house, then you get the women.**
Then they divorce your ass, get the house and you get to rent or tent. Fucking brilliant. /S
The world is getting worse. Sodom and Gommorah
No your thinking of a man with two knives
I gotta tell you, it feels pretty great.
My brother lives in wellington in NZ. He says its pretty common there for two couples to go halves on buying a house.
Don't be surprised when this happens here too!
Didn't the same thing happen in New Zealand that's happen here now regarding housing. Massive amount of foreign investment into their housing leaving nothing for the locals. Their house prices are even more ridiculous than ours currently.
well thats us asexuals fucked or not. ah christ im even more confused than before.
You don't need to be in a physical relationship. Look at those two male friends in Tipp who got married.
Bagsy being the dude
I am trying to think of any other legitimate reason this stock photo was taken? I mean the dude on the left and the lady on the far right, they know shits about to get weird. And the one in the middle seems ecstatic the mortgage is getting paid? 🤣
Let me run this past the wife, I’m sure she’ll understand.. brb 1 min
.....and 6 hours later he’s not back. Shall we call the emergency services lads?
Who's getting fucked tonight?
All of us!
Oh I just keep bent over these days and am just happy the KY jelly hasn't run-out yet, though the amount used is decreasing.
I guess Cork really is seceding
i think me and both my partners have a total of 3 quid and a probably out of date gift card
Why is it always one man with two or more women? Why not one woman with multiple men?
I don't think that's a stereotype at all but for a three way it *is* supposedly more likely for women to be bisexual
Maybe the ladies might opt for a bit of Polyandry, how'd ye fancy that lads ?
What would be the equivalent of "I don't know what a tracker mortgage is" in this new campaign?
''give them sex, place to live, that will keep them occupied''
That’s Polyamory, not polygamy.
A new "demon" for the Gemma O'Doherty nut-jobs to worry about,
three way marriages
wanted to kill myself living with one woman cant even fathom with two, rather live in a decrepit shack
...but this grates my nerves!
The home buyer pays 70%, gov pays 30% (interest free), you’ve no reason to care what the state pay, you’re never paying it back.
So the max YOU’LL pay is €315,000 for a house in Dublin City.
That’s the maximum limit, have no doubt you’ll be able to find offers under it.
Under Central bank rules, 3.5x salary as standard and that’s a €81,000 gross joint income for the most expensive home you can buy under the scheme.
So a household earning €81,000 can affordably purchase a home of €450,000.
By affordable I mean, the mortgage would be >€1,200 a month at 3%.
That’s a bargain for a €450,000 home.
Did this guy just defend the scheme to the death and then delete his account? lol
