Never been to the Westin but the W is amazing and I highly recommend. I think that Westin may an all inclusive and a lot it points?

like

it is! so many points and i’ve read some reviews that it’s a bit dated in some areas

If you’re bonvoy titanium, you get access to renovated adults only pool area and top shelf liquor even if your room is not upgraded at Westin.

Is the W also an all-inclusive resort?

it is not. i decided on the w though

My SO adds very little to our relationship. She has a dead end job. I cook. I work. I oversee finances. I plan trips. She doesn’t have a voice in the relationship. I’ve asked her to give her perspective but she always defaults to mine bc she thinks I’m smarter/worldly. She feels intimated by me and my social circle. Lately, I’ve found myself thinking for her. Anticipating her wants and needs and then adjusting my behavior to meet them. Which she appreciates but it’s frustrating 29M 27F

I just had dinner with some old friends and they are about to retire early. Part of their plan is to downsize their home, get a small condo and travel for 9-10 months a year. Does this seem crazy? I just can’t imagine it. I guess they figured the cost would be about the same but wouldn’t you miss the relationships. Wouldn’t your kids feel lost without having a sense of home? Anyone thought about this?

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.

My husband and I got married young 23/21. We've been married for 13 years now and happy. My husband occasionally mentioned he eventually wanted to have a kid or two. We were young and dumb so didn't have adult discussions before we got married. At the moment I don't want to have any children. I love focusing on my career and the freedom I have traveling and doing stuff for myself. Is it the time to have the talk? How should I bring it up?
