I think a good marriage by definition also has to be a friendship and partnership. I certainly don't think that means you have to enjoy the identical television programs or want to spend every...

If you're debating, don't do it. Some people really hate them on others although they are really common now. You seem afraid you'll be judged. Don't get one until you're sure it's what you want. No...

They are often hired by bail bond companies that posted and then forfeited bail money when the suspect failed to show for court and often skipped out. The bail company wants their money back. The...

I agree with Gromit. Only do that if you're planning to stay in the house for the really long term. Starting out on your own, I would think it would be important for you to have a cushion of cash if...

While the principal could be a bully, this site is always quick to assume the teacher is right and the principal wrong. Not all principals are monsters. Not all teachers are saints or even good...

I think I'd ask for a specific instance. If you haven't had recent problems with a job or other principal, I'd just keep it low key and try to do my job.

Did you ask if the cost of diagnostic tests is applied to repairs if you have them done there? I love my car too.

It's complicated and I think this is right

An ex-spouse (marriage lasting 10 years or longer) can receive a maximum of 50% of the (living) ex-spouse's benefit or her own SS benefit but not both. Again, not two checks. The percentage depends...

I wouldn't say anything about your principal to her. Sadly, school politics can do a number on friendships.
