My wife and I need a break. Had our first baby in March and we are worn out (getting better) but very tired. Wife said to me “I need us time”, and she’s never said that in the 3 years we’ve been married. Suggestions on getaways or things to do?

Do you two have a support system nearby? Maybe once a month we let the girls stay the night with their grandparents and it’s always right on time. Sometimes we plan exciting dates, usually we sleep, order in, and watch Netflix.

How’s the weather where you live?

I second P1- My wife and I would get a nice hotel with a spa in our City and get away from the 1 year old and 2 year old for the weekend.. It’s great, we get massages, eat, watch shows. Just relax in general, what we really love about the idea is that it’s stress free from travelling and also don’t have to wake up early in the morning to worry about kids. It’s awesome!

Marriage retreat? Weekend to remember is popular. Otherwise definitely second the idea of a staycation

I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/position, it is nyc based, and that it’s full time. It also doesn’t provide benefits breakdown, just a blanket statement that I’m eligible. I’ve spoken to the recruiter about these items, but general response is that this is standard for the company. To me this is all very strange and I feel it should be defined more. Does this sound normal to others? Can’t tell if i should push on this more or leave it.
