If another firm offers me a 40 percent base increase and I sign the offer letter is there any room to renege if my current firm (unlikely) matches? I imagine I’ll probably be blacklisted for life from the new firm. Anyone have a similar experience? Also would you renege for anything less than an exact or better match? Never been in this situation before. Context: not unhappy here / enjoy it but was recruited; surprised at the offer they made. It would take me 2 years min here to get to $

Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.

Need some honest advice:
My husband and I come from different parts of India. They speak a local language while my family speaks Hindi. They can speak little bit of Hindi and English too, not great but basic stuff. My husband and his family keeps insisting that I learn their language. I have learnt the basics and can understand it but not conversational. I have also not been putting in enough effort because I am not fully bought in. This has created a wedge between us which I don’t know (contd.)
