My husband and I get along great on the weekends - we are amazing cohosts, we love to go out together, we find eachother compelling and charming. We also do well in “emergencies” - when one of us is sick or we a specific tough issues. But it feels like every weeknight is a tense and unpleasant chore of “who will make this decision about dinner/tv/how much time we should spend together in the evening vs doing our own thing” and I just feel like I can’t stand him only to be in love again Friday…

Hello all, I am leaving EY on medical ground and asked for a waiver of notice period which got approved. Just wanted to know if my relieving letter will be stating any reason or will it be only the relieving date.
The White House doctor came out a while ago and said Trump uses Soolantra for his rosacea (a condition that causes redness of the face). I understand you don’t like the guy... but I don’t understand how people are ok with making fun of a medical condition.
unpopular opinion… but i feel like my bf is too passive, to the point he doesn’t seem to care as much. Whenever I get sick all he says is “oh no feel better!” And doesn’t text until I say I’m feeling better. I’ve explained to him that I like to feel taken care of in cases where I’m sick and I reciprocate when he is. He says he’s giving me space so I explained that I would wish he can offer help or ask questions like so. But he still reverts to the same response. How should I process this?

At my company we’ve just been instructed to take no action on long term sick cases. None. If they want to return they can but otherwise they just sit like ghosts on our books. I'm curious how many ghost employees in the system it will take before the decision is reversed.
I got a call from my almost 3 year olds school saying that my son has been crying for me a lot. Also at bed time, he begs to sleep with me. Once we get him into his bed, he typically screams I want you mommy for 20 minutes till he falls asleep. This breaks my heart so I’ve been cuddling with him but the problem is that will last till 9pm and I have stuff I need to do. He pretends to be sick to avoid school but tells me he likes school but would rather stay home with me. He goes daily from 830-5
Really starting to wonder why people in PA are so underpaid? Hearing my friends, who work in other other industries, talk about their higher salaries almost makes me sick. They work 9-5, have less of a workload, and WAY more of a work/life balance. Not here to complain, just think this is a major issue in our industry and something to consider since turnover is supposedly at an all time high.

Any advice for those really struggling with motivation and tiredness? I’m split across three modules and feel constantly tired and unproductive. With WFH I’ve got into a bad habit of taking naps during the day, and trying to cram the work in the evening, which is somewhat okay for getting through the day-to-day, but I feel like it will all come crashing down soon, plus it leaves no time to do anything I enjoy.

Ladies who make more money than your partner - did it change them? Just got a new job & now I make substantially more than my husband. He has been 100% thrilled & supportive but funny because before he was very aloof about work. Now he is trying SO MUCH harder. He started dressing professionally, has been volunteering for more projects, and schmoozes with his bosses. I feel like he secretly feels a little competitive and is trying to get a promotion too (which is great!!) but it’s def a shift

Seeking financial/relationship advice: Long term girlfriend is in medical school while I’m a well-paid consultant. I am building savings meanwhile she has no income and will probably graduate with $200k in student debt. This is definitely the woman I want to marry, but I get anxious as our financial situations diverge from one another. Anyone ever have a similar experience or have tips to share?
