A pretty evenly paired couple in terms of attractiveness whereas there’s a mismatch in the case of my SO’s brother and wife. Still found it weird that we’re now just hanging with my friend alone all because she’s hot lol

I don’t? We have had limited time in the city to meet up with folks and before we left I thought a Friday that included a good friend of mine wasn’t the worst idea. If I had more friends here I would have invited them too. I also am open to my SO and his brother inviting their friends. Again I find it a bit insane that I would have to even think about this. It’s not like we were meeting up in a strip club. This would be a dinner and drinks at most.

As a married guy, everyone’s situation is a little different, but to me it doesn’t sound like an appropriate move to invite a female friend, regardless of attractiveness, so you SO’s brothers event without your SO there. I would be pretty weirded out if my sister’s SO invited another girl to a happy hour while he was visiting me.

I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!
