Should I be worried my brother is trying to steal my husband?

KAT's lil bro was at the new house with the Pretend Husband and I the other day, and the conversation turned to the fact that, since I don't have a job right now, we might have trouble getting our mortgage approved.

"Well, PH," said KAT's lil bro. "You and I could head up to Massachusetts..."
"Why?" asked my oh-so-innocent husband.
"They legalized gay marriage," I explained. "You guys could then get the mortgage together."
"Oh," said the PH. (Yet, not refusing the offer!)

When I laughingly told my dad about the conversation later, his response was, "That might work."
"Yes, Dad," I said. "But then I would definitely have to go on 'Jerry Springer' on the show titled, 'My brother stole my husband.'"

Am I the only one who thinks allowing my brother (who I should announce is not gay) to marry my husband (also not gay... I don't think) is just a little weird? (Or-- option B-- who am I to get in the way of a brilliant plan to secure our mortgage?)

With the way the market is, I wouldn't rule it out completely.

Uh oh, if the PH marries your brother they can do stuff that chicks won't let them, like leave the seat up & watch sports or play video games all day! PH might never come back to you!

Is it worth a mortgage?

; )

You are being selfish! Don't stand in the way of a great plan! Besides, Jerry Springer is awesome!

I have to agree with everyone else. This is a solid plan based on economic reality. Come to terms with it.
