Q: My husband and I are shopping for a new home, and we recently found a property that matches our needs exactly. The price is right and the seller is highly motivated; we were congratulating ourselves on our good fortune when a well-meaning neighbor shared some disturbing news about the place:The owner's young wife recently committed suicide in the house. Now we are second-guessing our choice. I want to ask other AT readers: does your home have a past? How does a home's dark past affect how you feel about it?
