Hi Ladies. For those of you who have had their hearts broken how long did your relationship last and how did your boyfriend breakup up with you?
I recently had my first baby and I’m trying to be as practical as possible, I did not get a bunch of baby stuff I just got the essentials, I think they sell you too much unnecessary things. I do appreciate people showing affection with gifts but feel kids now a day are over gifted. Would it be taken wrong if I suggest that for birthdays and Christmas instead of toys people deposit whatever they were going to spend in my baby’s 529 account?

Thoughts on pre-nups?
I usually don’t celebrate my birthday, but I’m turning 40😅 and feel like I need to do something by inviting people I know. I think it will be a small group, maybe 10 at most. I’m thinking I’d like to do a nice dinner, but don’t want it to be expensive for people. So I’m leaning towards a happy hour on Friday, maybe get some appetizers for the group and then everyone pays for their drinks. Do you girls think it is a good option for the group? What’s the “etiquette” for this sort of celebration?
