Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.
Should I have a second child? I met my husband later in life at 37 yo. We had our first when I was 39. I thought I was good with just one as I was never someone who really wanted kids but I know my husband would love to have another and now that I have one I think about her having a sibling. I’ll be 41 in March so we need to start now. I love the ease and flexibility of one child and she’s been such good baby. I’m worried that if we have another I’ll regret it. I’m also about to start a new job.

Is there any American History Teachers out there using this text book? I'm retiring and the end of this year, and want to pass on Lessons and very cool Crossword Puzzles I've made for every section of this book! I realize mine is the Florida edition.

Has anyone here gotten pregnant with someone they were dating vs married to? Can you share your experience? Is that still frowned upon in 2022? I know culture also comes into play for some. Even though it seems we are more progressive now - none of my friends had kids before marriage. Especially those with professional careers etc. It seems like the whole first comes love then comes marriage and baby thing is still standard. Does it really have to be though? Especially if you're in your 30s.

Anyone not looking forward to Black History Month? It’s has become so performative that I honestly ignore it. It’s been co-opted by corporations and everyone else to virtue signal and pay lip-service to the community. I celebrate my history and culture every day. I don’t need (or want) to hear a recycled NPR segment about King’s murder, read a New Yorker article re: “systemic racism is real, guys!” Or see an uninspired list of “Black Authors to Read.” This wasn’t Carter G. Woodson’s vision.
Getting married soon. Want to bring up the mgmt of finances conversation. We both are in the high income bracket in a HCOL city. But had different starting points with me having been in higher paying job for longer, which means we might have different current savings.

How to split cost of livingetc

We are used to living and working in big cities w/o a car (NYC, Chicago), but that doesn't seem possible in SF/SJ without a long commute time. Other guy is looking for a job in tech, but currently works remotely for a firm with offices in downtown SF and San Jose.
