Question: David Dental DDS and his unmarried partner Sally Surgeon MD

David Dental, DDS, and his unmarried partner, Sally Surgeon, MD, have lived together for the past five years. Both are at the peak of their careers and decide to buy a new “show case” home in La Jolla, Califor-nia. After looking at several homes in the area, they buy one for $ 2 million. They put a 20 percent down payment ($ 400,000) on the house and finance the balance ($ 1.6 million). Each takes out a separate mort-gage for $ 800,000 for a total $ 1.6 million. There is no other debt (e. g., a home equity loan) on the residence.
