Anyone ever dealt with fraud at Marcus? Had to call three times to get them to even initiate the process, now I have to mail in a written statement, and it can take up to 45 days for a decision. My university credit union can take care of this online in an hour. Had Marcus two years no complaints, but current setting up HM Bradley.

I’ve been struggling at work, trying to get a promotion but it isn’t going to happen. I confided in my wife about this, telling her it was hard because I thought I deserved it and that I’d been in my current position for many years. She listened and offered advice, which I appreciated. Last night we got into an argument (not about work) and in the heat of the moment, she yelled at me that my stupidity is why I’m not getting a promotion. It cut me deep, I’m still hurt. How do I get over this?

Advice on picking battles over expenditures for a future child?

Need to pull myself together and just do the work because well, I need the job, and in this economy no one else is hiring.

Due to some room mate shifting I am going to shift from paying 900 a month to about 1300. Only other option was getting a single for 1400, I live in a low cost of living city so didn’t think getting a studio would be worth it consider I work from home. Total compensation will be just other 90k this year. Any tips for making sure I stay on the FIRE PATH? Concerned that I’m now forking over an extra 5k after tax in rent and realizing that losing potential room mates has huge financial implication
