My boyfriend and I make 200K combined and live in NJ. We have $1000 in monthly car payments combined. That’s all we owe. Our credit scores are in the 800s. We have 50K to put down on a home. We have done the math and I know we can afford much more but he doesn’t want to buy more than a 400K home. I’m almost positive we can afford 500K and be more than ok. But then he starts to talk about how much kids cost and how we will be house poor and we won’t be able to afford kids. 🤔 Am I insane??

EVP wants to know which career direction I want to take- I want to move to a more creative or research role but I don’t know how honest I can be

Just found out not long ago that I’m pregnant! Exciting but scary given that I started a new position about six months ago. How long did everyone wait to tell their supervising attorneys? I’m at 10 weeks now and am struggling with severe nausea in the office, so I feel like I’m going to be found out if I don’t mention something soon. Also, not sure about whether the firm has maternity leave (not in the handbook). Is there an easy way to bring it up after I announce? Thanks for the advice!
