When you think about relocating, do you factor in the effects of global warming and severe weather events? Just wondering.
Thinking of moving to a MCOL/HCOL city (Chicago) and wanting to buy my first condo. Are lenders usually comfortable if your Principal + Interest + Insurance + Tax + HOA is roughly 36% of gross? It would be less but my wife has been going back to school (no student loan to add to the debt though) so no income yet, but will be starting to work again and ultimately lower it to around 25%.
Edit: We have 20 - 25% down payment available too.
Being an immigrant, I’m surely late to the Roth IRA wisdom in US. I make sure to max my annual Roth IRA to 6k. In my current job, 401k contribution can be split between pre-tax, post tax, Roth. I blindly put everything pre-tax to max $19,500. Should I rethink my strategy?

Looking into pet insurance and wondering what a common cap is, any ideas? We’ve never had pet insurance before or had a pet with a real emergency so have no idea what that would cost, plan we’re considering is up to $8,000. Is that enough?

How have your insurance costs changed over the last year? My home insurance jumped 20% which I guess makes sense as the value and cost of replacement have gone up but I was surprised to also see my car insurance go up 20% given it is a 5 y/o non luxury car driven <10k miles a year. Is this purely driven by the used car market or is this abnormal in the current environment?

I‘ve been dating a lovely man since April. He’s everything I look for in a significant other and I’m so happy being with him. Today, I discovered a red flag. He’s not done an std test in years and that before me, he’s had unprotected sex with a few women that he “trusts” and that are on an IUD. This has absolutely made me feel so insecure and also angry at how careless he is with his own health. He’s also a health care professional! (Continued)
