She adamantly refused and cried and says we are buying together and she doesn’t want her own place.
I was calm and reasonable. What do I do?

Term life insurance question - I added the AICPA annual term policy last year. I've noticed personal finance media seems to push 10-20 year term and not discuss annual.

It was considerable cheaper up front and more at the end than 10yr per the fee schedule. If all goes according to plan I'll be at or close to FI within 5-7 years so not sure that I'd keep the full amount past then and would miss the benefit of the cheaper years at the end. Am I missing other risks of not doing 10+ term?

Additional Posts in In-House Counsel

In house counsel in big tech. 14 YOE. Junior manager of a small team. I've been advising senior leadership for some time and find myself more interested in business strategy than legal (or beyond legal). I also want to better understand organizational systems. I've seen continuing education business courses or legal leadership programs, but I'm wondering if an executive mba would be better. Time and cost are considerations. Anyone have experience here or programs you'd recommend? Am I crazy?

Any tips for a new inhouse counsel as a junior associate? Thanks in advance!

Today my client annoys the crap out of me. The way the business team presents risks to the decision committee is a joke. The decision makers only hear what they want to hear. And when crap happens, it’s the project teams and legal’s fault - not the impossible deal closing schedule. God forbid we point out super high risk point or want the project to succeed. Meh, I’m just griping…

I just received an offer for a job I am very excited about. Base is within reasonable range and I will likely go back and ask for a bit more there.
