I’d get married sooner. I know that’s not the question you asked... For that time horizon you’re probably best off staying the course. Or taking a portion of it and investing in high quality dividend stocks.

Hey I have an ASC840 accounting question on this scenario - a target sold an asset 10 years ago for 10,000,000 and immediately leased it back. They recorded a deferred gain of $1M and amortized it over the term of the lease (still going) and letting that gain every month reduce the rent expense. Since this deal is cash free debt free shouldn’t we treat this as a debt like item? They received the cash in a prior period but we are now stuck with the payments.

Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling.

Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one

Visiting my SOs family and they have planned for us to drive to another city and spend a couple of nights there and do activities however no one is communicating how much the extra stuff will cost. Mind you the trip is tomorrow and they have known we are coming for a month. Should I ask how much this is going to cost us or do I just wait until someone asks me for money? I am afraid this might be like $1000 expense for us that is just unplanned.

We also just seemed to relate on a lot of things.

I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
