These days I am always imagining of moving out and separating from my husband. He doesn’t talk or communicate at all. Whatever free time he has , he talks with his mom and dad. Our son also isn’t a priority to him. It’s been 5 years and it has now come to a standstill. I am also slightly scared of him. Can I move out with the kid or do I need to get a lawyer ?
Sometimes I wonder if only, I didn't have a passion (professionally), maybe, I'd be much happier taking any job that comes my way. I've been struggling to find a job in my practice area- that I'm genuinely passionate about, for almost a year now (in all fairness, covid didn't help). So much for passion. Every shred of confidence I had is dwindling.
Just needed to vent.

Kroll Employees, how is the workload, travel and overall experience in their Expert Services department? Need some honest feedback
Pre-pandemic we were headed for a burnout. Dual career household and always over-committed! With things opening back up, I don’t want return to that frantic pace or stress from being late for morning meetings or pick up from daycare, behind on work/working late to catch-up, chores, etc. I have loved this extra time with my family. Are you making lifestyle changes post-COVID? If so, how?
Anyone take time off from work to stay home until the littles were in school? Would you do it again?
Which hotel has the most comfortable bed?
Curios about the Covid-19 measures other strategy consulting firms are putting in place.
Ik this is dramatic okay but no travel, bar scenes, and opportunities for social events for the foreseeable future makes me feel like I’m missing out on my 20s and also makes it a lot harder to make new friends
Hotel-Off : which hotel is better overall to rack up stat points on Marriott/spg or hiltons?
100m doses in 100 days seems like a marketing strategy. We were already doing 900k average a day. Why are we so slow? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9184593/US-smashes-Bidens-COVID-19-vaccine-target-1m-shots-day.html
Ignoring COVID for a second and how it'll impact firm's financial capability to even give bonuses, do firms with billable reqs usually still give bonuses to first years even if they don't make the threshold?
Maybe like 5% of my first year class will make the threshold (and tbh that number would be around the same of COVID never happened. Just curious as to how most NYC big law deal with this.
Delta has sent me an offer to open a Skymiles platinum AmEx and get 80K bonus miles. Annual fee $195. Worth it? (I already have five credit cards none have fees tho.)

Do you spend time talking with your students about coronavirus? What misconceptions or conspiracy theories have you heard them floating around?
Hey all. Any of you have a joint account with a parent back in India? If you transfer money to this account, are there tax implications.
I’m going on maternity leave starting in January depending on when baby comes. I sent out my transition notes and had meetings with my team members that are taking my clients over. The one team member has one been at the firm for 3 months but is supposedly trained on the type of clients I’m giving her. This will be her first year end but I have been told that she will get help from my manager if need be. This week I asked her to help on a simple task and she overdid it. Now she’s blaming me for
