Sixto Segura (R) looks out of the window as his wife Susana Reyes lays in bed while they wait for the judicial commission to arrive to decide on their eviction in Madrid November 7, 2012. Segura and his wife, who stopped making their mortgage payments when both became unemployed, had their eviction suspended until December 13 due to ongoing negotiations with his bank. Reyes suffered a thrombosis attack back in April and has her left hand and left leg partially paralyzed. Spain passed a decree on November 15, 2012 to help the most needy families facing eviction during the nation's economic crisis, responding to an outcry over a homeowner who killed herself when bailiffs arrived to throw her out.
