My best friend just found out she’s pregnant after hooking up with an ex in early October. Gulp. The guy doesn’t want to keep it & my friend is contemplating raising on her own but wants financial support from the ex (at a minimum).

Love this community so would welcome opinions. Yes I’m an amazing friendlol

Vanguard Retirement Fund or Personal Allocation of ETFs? (24M) Does anyone have an opinion on which is the better option? This is in addition to my 401K plan. It seems like the retirement funds have higher fees since they’re mutual funds, but the convenience of just being able to automatically invest each month, rather than try to stay diversified yourself, is appealing to me. Maybe I’m just new to this, but it’s hard to grasp what the ACTUAL cost of all the fees are for the retirement fund.

FIRE folk, do you contribute to a traditional IRA, with the expectation that your income will be lower when you finally hit FIRE and hope for that ~10 tax, so you'll do ladder conversions later or do you do direct Roth or backdoor Roth conversion contributions now? I don't mind the Roth contributions now, but I truly believe we'll have less income when retired. No kids now, but planning to in a couple of years.
