They show plenty of love to the conks and losers who aren't even. My time to qualify for these things is behind me but they are long overdue.

We should get sabbaticals!

*DINKs not conks

The whole point is to make it easier for people who have to balance a work and family. If your childless you don't have that balance it act and have it easier.

D2- respectfully disagree. How is a single person caring for aging parents easier?

What about people with kids doing that as well? Deloitte did try to address that with the inclusion of caring for a sick family member

My father apptly invited my cousin to thanksgiving. The cousin who took my baby name bc she “wasn’t sure it would get used given ‘my situation” and “wanted to make sure it got used since it’s such a beautiful name.” So I guess I’m having dinner across from a 7 month old baby with my dream baby’s name. Super weird to resent an infant on thanksgiving, but that’s where we are..

How long is too long before meeting an SO’s parents? We’ve been together a little over 2.5 years and I still haven’t met them. Part of it is because they’re in India and we’re in the US and covid travel bans won’t allow it, but they have suggested FaceTime and my SO refuses. I think he wants to make sure it goes well but given our trip was planned December 2020 and won’t happen anytime soon, shouldn’t I at least meet them virtually? Am I reading into it too much?
