For those with divorced parents how did you handle having “2 dads” at your wedding? My father and step father will both attend, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by leaving out one for the other. Any ideas on how they can both participate? Seems weird to have both walk me down the isle..

Honestly it all depends on what you want - if that means both walk you down the aisle, so be it. It’s *your* day. I have seen it before and no one batted an eye.

Other alternatives I’ve seen: you could have one walk you down the aisle and another give a speech, or you could have neither walk you down and the other have the father/daughter dance. It’s really up to preference.

My cousin went through this recently. Both her father and step father walked her down the aisle, she had a father daughter dance with each of them and each of them gave a speech. Her parents divorced when she was very young and her mother remarried when she was about 10. She grew up with her stepdad around everyday and saw her dad often even though they didn’t live together. I obviously can’t speak to how she made the decision, but I know her dad and stepdad have a good relationship so I’m sure that made the decision easy for her.

I wanted to include my mom and dad in the ceremony (they are married but she is too traditional to join my dad in the walk down the aisle) so he walked me down the aisle and then my mom stood up when we got to the front. The pastor said who gives this woman...and together they said “we do.” Maybe your step-dad could have a similar role? Could also have one read a verse or poem? The speech at reception is also a good idea although that is dicey depending on who is paying. Typically if your dad pays for the majority of the wedding he gives the main speech before passing it to bridal party.

What would happen if I left my current company, started at a new one, and got pregnant before 12 months of service with the new company? For reference, I know new company requires 12 months for FMLA, and STD is 3 months.

If I’m not eligible for FMLA, what would that leave situation look like? Not currently pregnant but husband and I are wanting to start trying soon, just don’t want to be in a situation where I can’t take maternity leave. TIA!

I have been interviewing at a company that I have wanted to work at since I was in undergrad. The issue is that they can’t offer me much more than I’m currently making, but they focus on family and making it affordable to have kids (I’m currently pregnant.) Yes, they know.

Is it worth the change in jobs for a little tiny pay increase (or same wage) but WAY better maternity leave and benefits? I currently only get 4 weeks paid at my current job for maternity leave w/ crappy insurance.

My creative marketing agency, Codeword, is hiring account people! Senior Account Managers, an Account Director, and Account Managers. We work with tech clients like Google, Linktree, Qualcomm, and others. The agency has about 80 employees, but is owned by a much bigger parent company so the benefits are great! Most of the roles are based in NYC but we also have offices in San Francisco and Salt Lake City.

Message me if you have any questions and I can possibly refer you!
