On one hand - it's a house, but then, what if he wanted thirteen children? Fail.

150 years ago, this could have been a boon to a single farmer with more land than he could till on his own!

She drives a hard bargain.

Is this a reference to something?

What is this?! Did she offer to give her kids away? Or did she just say she'd be happy to have kids? Or is that saying that over the course of their life together, she bought a house and had 12 kids?

I think she had a house and twelve children already, if he wanted to marry her. They came as part of the package.

Why twelve children???

Because rhirteen is an unlucky number.
