Tara and Keith got engaged last year and moved in together. They were in the process of combining finances when Keith became extremely ill and fell into a coma. Keith was the main income earner in their household, and Tara did not have access to his accounts. For this reason, Tara was unable to pay the rent, and their landlord filed for eviction. Jesse Tree was able to intervene and keep Tara in the rental. Keith is still on the mend, and they are still stably housed almost a year later and planning their wedding!
