I never thought I’d have children and therefore have never had life insurance. However, I’m now in my late thirties and my partner and I are trying to have kids. Does anyone have any basic resources or tips to get life insurance for the first time at my age?

Typically your employer covers basic life insurance. You can add on additional for a small amount (shouldn’t be more than like $10-15 per month).

I (30F) have been dating a great guy (35M) for two months and he checks all of the boxes. We see each other 3-4 times a week and have established we are exclusive. I found out a few days ago (from him) that he is secretly a smoker and has no plans to stop. He’s never smoked around me, and I have never smelled cigarette odor. Smoking is a dealbreaker for me. What’s the move here? Do I end things, or am I being too picky?

I am feeling pretty miserable on my current project and it sometimes feels like there’s no end in sight. Team is great, client isn’t too bad but I always have a huge work load and I’m constantly stressed by tight deadlines. Don’t necessarily want to roll off because I really like my team, but am also not sure at what point to put my mental health before my career goals. Any advice would be appreciated.
