    Not to mention the better location, I am sure.

    Yes, you should.

    It may prevent you from demanding a home of size similar to say, Britney Spears' or Michael Jackson's. Or clothes similar to Rihanna at awards ceremony, or meals of Michelin-Star standard.

    Having a bigger house is a hassle. A smaller house means lesser space to clean. My friends who are married have never complained about the size of their flats.. Even when they have kids.

    I don't know. Do you have so many trophies that you need all that extra space to put them? Or is it because your living room is too small for a 60+ inch screen 4K tv which you barely watch?

    It is depressing for the depressed son-in-law to despressingly know that the depressed in-laws are depressing to see him in such a depression.

    Space is the ultimate luxury.

    I promise not to complain if I pay same price and get a house 10 times its actual floor area. Let me worry about the cleaning.

    You don't need more space than a single bed to to make raising the fertility rate happen.

    Another good place to do it is on Santosa Beach on a balmy night if you don't have a fertility space at home.
