[ - ] Although women are more represented in lower wage fields what about the wage gap between doctors (50% students now women) and bankers who are more represented by men and managed to destroy the economy and get paid insane amounts and then get bought out and are still doing it. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Bankers didn't destroy the economy. Natural factors like investors and homeowners buying up things that are going up in price created the recession. Bankers and traders only facilitated it like in every economic cycle. Anyone taking a no-doc mortgage to buy a house with nothing down is just as at fault. [ Reply | More ]

not unless you give the same level of 'blame' to mortgage companies for making the loans, to regulations for allowing bank company leverage, to anyone taking out a high-risk loan, and to any investor for buying a slice of MBS at 50 spread. [ Reply | More ]

They certainly helped by creating and misvaluing the default/credit risk associated with esoteric financial products like CDS and subordinated tranches of MBS and other types of ABS, and then holding too much of this junk on their balance sheets. Not to mention misvaluing the counterparty risk in dealing with AIG and similar. Idiot homeowners took on too much debt as well, but banks should know better than to lend to people with no visible means of repayment. Highly compensated financial professionals are rightly held to a higher standard. [ Reply | More ]

Why's that? Men and women in the same roles make roughly the same. Women choose lower paying jobs more often for lifestyle reasons, causing a large portion of the pay gap by their own actions.

Never put all of your eggs in one basket. The $250k you already have should be split between at least two different investments, to hedge each other. Yes, there is a limit to your annual IRA contribution. You can have multiple IRAs and Roth IRAs, and the annual contribution limit applies in aggregate. You are over 50, so you can contribute $6,500 to an IRA in 2015. [ Reply | More ]

+1 Vanguard. They have a tool on their website that matches their funds to your goals. For example, if you want to retire at 70, you have 15 years left to save, and you need the money to be stable and available from 70 to death. So you wouldn't want a long-term 40-year fund that has higher risk (those funds can tolerate higher risk, because they have a long time to recover from losses), but you wouldn't want a super-low-risk fund that is only meant for 5-year investment goals. There are lots of other investment goals and objectives to consider; their site is a good jumping-off place to get familiar and ask more questions. [ Reply | More ]

Go to the Vanguard website and spend some time reading and using the online tools they have, then split the money among several of their index funds. One of your picks should be the S&P 500 fund that tracks the broad market. You have a long time horizon (15+ years), so I would not put any in CD's which have inflation risk. And set up an automatic investment of even $50 or $100 a month to steadily add to your account. Signed, employee benefits manager who works with retirement funds. [ Reply | More ]

I always assume they're probably not great in bed if they can't enjoy such a physical pleasure as eating a good meal. [ Reply | More ]

Oh man, I am so with you on this. My DH is one who not only doesn't enjoy food he can't tell the good from the bad. Enjoying food doesn't mean stuffing yourself with shit food. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Sorry for my English. DH is manipulating situation so that he can get threesome. When we had a huge fight, he said he wants to leave me. I suggested to him a threesome( bc I know he is crazy about it), and he said he will give me a another chance. We were in Hong Kong and Thailand for weeks. He resented me that I didn't want to go to the prostitute's house. He think threesome should be efficient and enjoyable, and I made it difficult. And I hired a girl to our hotel, after that, he looked happy again. That was in Hong Kong. Before we travelled to Thailand, I told him I do not want to have more threesome. But he talked about it and go to bars with me. It was huge pressure on me. We wound up hireling a girl again. When he chose a girl, if the prostitute rejected us, he had the face with such big disappointment. I found it is so annoying and pathetic. I am studying now, but still financially dependent on him since I am an immigrants. ( he is an American). We are in mid 30s and we have been together 6 years. The more I think about my situation, I feel used and I feel so repulsed by his unhealthy sexual desire. Is my DH sick? Do I need to prepare for divorce? He is so so greedy about sex. I am so sick of this. He said he doesn't want to cheat on me. He wants to do it together! I was so angry at him today about him being so picky about girls( he wants to fuck a young looking girl although he told me that I have all power on the threesome issue), he said that I have a anger problem and I need to work of my severe rage toward him! Please give a thoughtful advice. Do not need to leave him? 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
