It seems like being a mom and a career woman are mutually exclusive.
Esp if you want a few children in close succession.

I definitely feel you on that one. You can never truly bring yourself to prioritize work over your child. You never feel like you're giving them enough time!

How do you all feel about splitting vacations 50/50 in a relationship and dates 60/40? I might be old fashioned but this rubs me the wrong way. I feel like I have to work 2x as hard to be taken seriously at work as a woman and pay for all kinds of crap like hair appts, nails, makeup, outfits to be viewed positively by men. Not to mention, expensive birth control, periods, and eventually potentially having a child. 50/50 makes me feel like a friend and not that valued. Thoughts?

Is it realistic to have a decent WLB if you’re a parent and working in MBB/T2 in Dubai? Is it guaranteed that you’d be travelling Monday-Thursday? Currently, I have a decent WLB in London but money is very attractive in Dubai but don’t want to miss my child growing up if I’m expected to not be home >80% of the time.
Any parents working in Dubai MBB/T2 have an answer?

Hi. I’m looking for advice. I recently interviewed for a job with the EPA. The hiring manager and team seems like it would be a good fit and I would be working on projects that would be what I want to be doing as a career. The job description has not been written up yet. How likely would the job be remote versus telework? My boyfriend has said he would not want to relocate. It almost seems like a cliché situation and I would be very conflicted about moving away from him.

Anyone else have issues with intimacy afterward a baby? Timeframe/when can there be any sense of a regular intimate life with my wife. (Its been months)
Would appreciate any advice/experience.

He wants space first and asked me to not wait for him as he sorts out his emotions and “tries to be happy again” (COVID depression and 100hr work weeks). Then he’ll decide if he wants to try again
