You can’t do anything. That unfortunately is the fact. They are adults and will do what they want. I will also let you in on a secret- if/ when you have kids, once they turn teenagers, they will listen to you less too. Unfortunately, this is life and each person has to look after themselves…

As a divorcee with a kid, i find it extremely hard to find friends who can relate, or even making friends as it seems there’s a stigma attached to you because your relationship didn’t work out.

Hot take: There are no soulmates.

There are people who you are more compatible with than others. Every relationship requires a ton of work.

Being aligned on how you want to live your life and raise your kids is what matters most.

My brother & fiancée have asked my daughters to be flower girls in their wedding. I just received an email from her that the kids are only to stay through cocktail hour and then they’ve arranged child care at a separate venue. Am I overreacting to think it’s presumptuous for her 1) not talk to me about it directly and 2) think that I’ll be ok with caretakers I’ve never met caring for my kids?(esp during a pandemic when we’ve already said we may bow out due to infection rates?)

I’m jealous of my husband’s work situation. He is in a non tech role at FAANG and makes the same as me ~$200k but works about 20-40 hours a week and then spends the rest of the time napping, & watching tv. He gets his work done quickly, attends meetings and has really great relationships to where people think he’s a superstar. To be fair, when things hit crunch time, he’s working hard and late hours, but it’s definitely a more balanced life. Are all faang companies work/life balance like this?
