Did anyone find themselves feeling disconnected with husband post baby? New mom here. Feel like my husband and I hardly talk of anything other than the baby and her daily needs. In case we ever do, we always end up fighting. Feeling unsure whether our relationship will last. I know the root of the problem is that we don’t get much time for each other. But just wanting to know if this somewhat normal, or should I be prepared for the worst.
Do you have to spend a certain number of months at PwC before you get their parental leave benefits?
I have a rather long question. If I run out of space, I will continue in the first comment. I sponsor a GSA. There is a trans student who is always making sardonic comments in inappropriate times. We were talking recently, and every time a student bared their soul, this kid would make a joke out of it. The students who were speaking felt that they were not heard, and all of the attention was focused on this trans student.
Best guided adventure trip outfits? Looking to get away in February. I’ve realized that I need to get away soon as I’m feeling some cabin fever. I love doing outdoorsy stuff - hiking, kayaking, canyoning, caving. Might do a ski trip, too, soon, but looking for something a bit more rugged. I prefer guided trips for the camaraderie and perceived safety benefits :). Any ideas? For context, I did a white water rafting and camping trip to the Grand Canyon last summer and loved it.

Morning rant : Why do we pay 50 percent marginal tax ? Healthcare was biggest argument and justification for me! But look where we are : No testing, no rapid kits or medical support for most cases and companies like shoppers just making a killing with 200 per PCR test which is available for free in US and many countries? Even US is giving free rapid kits, tests and N95 masks; the support in Europe is much better.

From my high school/college job at a county I have a 457(b) that has $5,215 in it with an ARR of 2.18%. It’s not much, but I am trying to figure out what the best thing to do with it is: leave if there until retirement, cash it out w/ no penalty but income tax, or roll it over into I assume an IRA. Any advice would be appreciated! (My current job has a pension and I pay extra into a different 457)

I grew up in a low income and single parent family. Humble beginnings. Now doing an average job as an accountant. I always feel inferior and insecure during a relationship. I know it’s not good but I cannot stop feeling that way. I don’t know how to become the confident, outgoing and stress free version of myself.

Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.
