Mazel to both of you! Love doesn't care if you currently have a gig. Talk it over with your man and come up with a plan that works for both of you. This is a good exercise for the many more challenges you'll face during married life.

Spouse and I are exploring having children seriously. However, one factor is what it would do to partnership opportunity.

can you be friends with an ex? We dated less than 3 mos, have some mutual friends but live in different cities.
We love each other but needed to break up. He had a recent family trauma & other stressors (law school mostly) that initiated the breakup. He couldnt afford to be emotionally present within us and the things at home (which i dont blame him for and fully respect)
I want to support him but also balance my own desires and expectations. Ive accepted we’re broken up fr. ended over 1mo ago

My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 months and he moved to another state for the summer to work. He made female friends that he is constantly texting throughout the day. We spoke and he reassured me that they’re just friends but he’s started being secretive with his phone he even turned off his messages notifications so they dont show up when we’re together. Like one time he went out with them and i didn’t hear from him until the next day(late morning). What should I do?

Can her mom get her a passport in the US and ship it to her? Is there anyway around this?

Thank you!!

I invited my SO to a work event where people are bringing a plus one. She said yes at first, then later followed up with an “if she can make it.” This happens almost every time I invite her to things, citing work. Last night I got really sad after that and couldn’t understand why she would never put me above work. She’s a dentist and has control over her schedule - can schedule treatment for another day or stop seeing patients at a certain time. Am I making a big deal out of a work event?
