They entered into a bilateral contract not a unilateral contract; there was no misunderstanding. The intent, was to start at a price and let market inflate the asking price; which unfortunately did not happen. Furthermore, many states (California is one) follow the Uniform Commercial Code, for which merchants are held to a different tier of verbal/written requirements over what determines and triggers a contract to become binding. Sorry, but negotiations between a consumer and merchant are much different than your example of a civil contract between spouses.
