We dated for 2 years, I got pregnant, and he said he wasn't ready to be a dad and left us. He came back when she was about a year old and apologised, stuck around for about 6 months, and then left again. She's now 4 and he wants back in her life.
I've said that's not happening unless we have a custody agreement. I know I can't make him show up or use his time, but he's not even on the birth certificate because he wasn't there to sign it and avoided signing it the first time he came back. If we had a custody agreement, if he took anything less than 50/50 custody he'd have to pay child support, and he says he can't afford to take any custody or pay any support, he can only afford to see her when she's at my place without going on the certificate.
I've said no. I want him on the certificate, I want a custody agreement, and anything less, to me at least, is showing a lack of commitment to our daughter. I don't want her hurt. She's 4 years old, last time he ducked out on her she was less... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I’ve been shopping for a home for a while now.
Not really looking to buy but more window shopping you know ?
I wasn’t working with a realtor.
But I found a place and wanted to make an offer.
A family friend suggested a guy who he grew up with who was also available that same day. I wanted an offer in ASAP so I went with it.
I never signed a buyers agreement with him. He’s around 60 apparently and forgot it.
So after a shitty job on his end (it didn’t feel like he was interested in what I wanted at all) and the offer falling through (admittedly not his fault), I decided to find another realtor.
I found one 3 days ago and she’s putting in an offer on a place I found and she showed me.
Through the friend grapevine, my exrealtor has found out that I’m using another realtor.
The new realtor is having me sign a buyers agreement tomorrow before she sends me the offer.
Here’s my problem. The ex realtor is threatening to sue me if I don’t come back to him, sign his buyer... keep reading on reddit ➡
Title. I don't understand how this is being characterized as the next pivotal eve moment/war when behind the scenes, the relevant parties have a profit sharing agreement for the proceeds of the TTT. How can you have real stakes in a war when your highsec keepstar is literally funding SRP for both sides?

When I (23F) turned 17 I received a generous inheritance for my father’s death. I was gonna use it for college, but I got scholarships covering everything so I could save the money. My younger sister (17F) is the daughter of my mother’s second marriage.
As I had expected to live in the same city that I was going to do Faculdad I decided to buy a house, my mother did not like, said I was despairing money, but I still went ahead. I got two roommates, which worked really well, and with that money I got back a portion of what I paid in the house. After graduating one of the girls still lived with me for another year. I turned one room into an office and the other became a guest room.
And I found out how much I love living alone, I always know what’s in the fridge, nobody makes noises at night around the house, I really like it.
My problem with my sister moving out is that unlike me, who by the time I was 14 years old had practi... keep reading on reddit ➡
We moved into a new house earlier in the year, and noticed homes don’t have fences unless there is a pool built. During the home buying process, we requested the bylaws multiple times and never received them, and even had our friends who live in the neighborhood post on the HOA Facebook page asking about fences.
The answer on the Facebook post was that the city restrictions on fences are more stringent than the HOA’s. Once we moved in I got access to the Facebook page and found the bylaws, and the only thing about fences talks about how tall they need to be and how they can only be in the backyard. No requirement to notify the HOA or anything.
When I mailed in our ballot for new board of directors, I included a note stating our intent to build a fence and that I reviewed the bylaws and city requirements and I would make sure I follow the rules there, signed with my name and number. The president called my husband upon receipt of the letter to tell him about the... keep reading on reddit ➡
Last year's class data on the Medical School Admissions Report (paid subscription...)
Asians (2019) - 40%
Asians (2020, according to tweet) - 22%
Looking at 4-year data and assuming this continues for three more years: https://meded.ucsf.edu/about-us/program-statistics/student-demographics
Asians: 60% ---> Asians: 22%
The school did NOT publish this yet, the Dean sent a private message to accepted students with the stats. https://twitter.com/chloe_cheng7/status/1278082156648992769?s=20
It is unfortunate that students are claiming this to be incredible and "progress". It is outraging to see that students believe we should go even FURTHER. Are we supposed to be proud that Asian representation is slashed by one-half, or even more? Are we suppose to accept that fact that these policies negatively impact poor and disadvantaged Asian youth, who do not have the connections, resources, and opportunities to compete with white and 3rd generation Asians?
Keep in mind that UCSF is tradit... keep reading on reddit ➡
[Doyle's Statement] (https://twitter.com/ToddBrommelkamp/status/1272557149693063168/photo/1)
So my fiancé and I have a large wealth discrepancy. My grandparents gave me and my sister a large amount of money when they died, and I have a much higher paying job than him. He works just as hard as me, he just gets paid less.
The way our finances work right now is I pay most of our day to day expenses but he gets me nice birthday and Christmas presents. Last Christmas he got me a really beautiful necklace that he wouldn’t have been able to afford if I made him pay rent on the apartment. So he contributes just as much as he normally would if he paid rent, but this makes me feel better. The rent doesn’t suddenly cost more because he lives here, I was paying it by myself anyway.
My parents pestered me and pestered me to explain to them how he was paying half the rent on our apartment with his job, because he shouldn’t get paid enough to afford it while also buying everything else he does. I finally told them a few months ago that he doesn’t pay the rent. They basically had a meltdown... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don't do this all the time, but some weekends when my wife goes out to run errands or has to go into her office, I will call my mother in law (MIL) and ask her to come over and watch our son while I take a nap or do something else.
It started one Saturday when some friends of mine sent me a text asking if I wanted to come ride ATVs with them and a friend of ours who rarely came to visit. I decided I would see if my MIL was available, and she was thrilled I called and asked her to come over. She told me that she wished she could help more but my wife was so determined to be independent that she would only let her help a little. This is true. They have a strong relationship, but my wife thinks asking for help is wrong unless it's an emergency.
I asked my MIL if she would be willing to babysit every so often, and she jumped at the chance. Now she comes over two times a month and will watch my son while I take a nap or do something else.
This arrangement was great until last weeken... keep reading on reddit ➡
