Too many people earning status through credit card spend alone.

Eh? That doesn’t change … you can still spend your way to get LPs

So what’s the point in having the credit card? Also I don’t book my work trips. So I won’t get credit for it?

Trying to decide if it’s worth it to refi. New loan would drop monthly payments by $800 and payout ~$20k upfront (2 months mortgage and remaining escrow) but slow my home equity growth. I’ve been comparing the difference in home equity in each successive year vs the expected value of investing that $20k and $800 monthly. Break even for the comparison is two years. Does that method make any sense? Any different recommendations for how to compare current loan vs potential refi?

Married for 14 years with 5 kids. Since the start, my wife has had anger issues. She’s not violent, but will go on ‘anger benders’ for days where she cannot be kind to me, stonewalls, and even leaves. Sometimes this is based on a bad argument; most recently, it’s based in a story she conjured up and believes about me having an affair with my neighbor, even though it is 100% false and I’ve tried to show her that. Is this a sign of a personality disorder? Or something else? How can I support her?

Kind of a weird question, but if you have status at hotels is there any way you could finagle either free or discounted multi-day parking for hotels near an airport? Don't want to have to rely on ride sharing from my home if there is a stronger likelihood of rides near a hotel airport parking space. I am speculating that it still turns out cheaper than hotel parking. This is not for work so I wouldn't be able to expense it.
