When Selena married Chris in 1992, Selena's father was upset but they made an agreement that Selena and Chris would live next door to her parents. Selena and Chris first lived in an apartment she had and Chris said it was more of a studio for her to make her costumes than an apartment where she lived full time. The lease was up soon after they married and Mr. Q offered them the house next door to his so they moved in there. AB was living in the house to the left of Selena's parents. Suzette lived in the same neighborhood close by.


Selena and Chris liked to have BBQ's in their backyard. Selena would also ask kids in the neighborhood to mow her lawn and then take them to lunch. A.B. said one morning he heard noise like a lawnmower going up and down the street, he looked out the window and it was Selena in a go cart driving kids in the neighborhood around.


Selena's house had 3 bedrooms, Her and Chris' room, a guest room and they converted the other room into a recording studio. Selena had a fish tank headboard but replaced it after a while because they traveled so much they couldn't keep fish alive. Selena also had her Faberge egg collection and Chris had his guitar collection displayed in the house. On the bathroom mirror, there were 2 stickers one that said, Selena & Chris and another that said, Selena Loves Chris.


Selena & Chris had purchased some land in 1993 and were going to have a house built on the land. They were going to move in mid 1995 to a 5 bedroom house on a few acres. Selena had already picked out the furniture for the house. Selena described the land on the TV show Noche De Carnival. She stated that it had a small lake and was close to the botanical gardens just outside of the city's main area. She wanted to have a small farm on her land with horses and other animals. Chris decided to get his deposit back on that house because he said it was a dream they shared and if she wasn't going to be there with him he didn't want it.
