Well - do they drive drunk? DH & I both drink too much - but we're always kind and never raging drunk. We would never drink and drive - not even one drink - with kids in the car. Ever. If there was an emergency and we had to take a child to the hospital - we'd call EMS and they're around the corner. We wouldn't risk getting behind the wheel. Honestly - if they weren't right around the corner- i might not drink on the same nights as DH because I would want one of us to be able to drive in an emergency. [ Reply | More ]

Do you have a house? If so - do you drink in the evenings on summer weekends? During dinner/ or after the kids are in bed? I'm horrible because I have thought about how I'd handle a problem with my children if both of us had a few drinks? There aren't a ton of cabs by our beach house and they don't come quickly. If there was an emergency with a kid - I'd call EMS - that's all I'm saying. I wouldn't call EMS for something non-emergency. And I would never drink if I was solely responsible for the children that night. I drink because I'm weak and I work 80+ hours a week and it calms my mind that races otherwise. I could just take prescription meds like 90% of the people who don't drink do.. would you feel better if I drove around on Xanax or whatever is in fashion now? [ Reply | More ]

To be fair, you can meet someone when you're young and date them and be engaged for the longest time, and life just happens. You can't take someone at one age and predict what they'll be like in another 10 or 20 years. Life throws curve balls. Life is humbling. Anyone who thinks they have a system for the "best life" is going to be disappointed. [ Reply | More ]

So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church." [ Reply | More ]

one verse can be taken out of context. The whole passage talks about how husbands and wives should treat each other.

Otherwise they can end up with a misguided meaning, and then they will use that to get whatever point across. [ Reply | More ]

And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

(12) And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms. She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men. Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way, And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with vermilion, Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity: And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon them, and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea. And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them, and her mind was alienated from them. So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness: then my mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her sister. Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt. For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses. Thus thou calledst to remembrance the lewdness of thy youth, in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth. – Bible : Ezekiel (23) : 11 – 21. [ Reply | More ]

They're similar. Brooklyn Heights is the most expensive and has been nicest for longer (first historic district, first "suburb" of Manhattan), but doesn't have great amenities or trains unless you're near Borough Hall. Boerum Hill is smallest, really only about 5x4 blocks and has 2 large housing projects on the outskirts. I've lived here 8 years and am very happy but the blocks are not as uniformly nice as Bk Heights. Cobble Hill, IMO is the nicest neighborhood for all things, but again doesn't have great subways. It really depends where you are in each neighborhood. All are lovely places to live. Where are you looking? [ Reply | More ]

Cobble Hill looks beautiful, but lacks trains and there doesn't seem to be much on the market. I was wondering how safe Boerum Hill is compared to the other two. [ Reply | More ]

B'lyn Heights is the best for trains. Almost every line to east & west sides of Manh. is an easy walk from the Heights. Cobble Hill, not so much. But B'lyn heights is very, very expensive. [ Reply | More ]

Agree. What is above poster talking about. Brooklyn Heights has the best transportation. Every subway line goes through this neighborhood except for the G line. Clark St: 2,3, Borough Hall : 4,5,2,3, High Street:A,C, Jay St.: F, E, A, C, Court St. R. It does not get any better transportation wise. All these stations are within walking distance of each other.

Haha! Thank you. I am previous poster, lived in the Heights for 11 years, but have lived in another state for almost 3 yrs. I didn't have it in me to think back and remember all the subway lines. When we moved to b'lyn from Manhattan, we looked in Park Slope, then BH, and part of the attraction was how easy it is to get anywhere in the city from BH. [ Reply | More ]

It is not a bad walk from Cobble Hill to Borough Hall for all the trains, some buildings further away have shuttles too. My office is off the F so it is super easy from Cobble Hill (although the F sucks some days) [ Reply | More ]

Borough hall is relatively easy for parts of all of the above neighborhoods. But a lot of Bk Heights is far from Borough Hall and inconvenient. [ Reply | More ]

Cobble Hill has the best school option (29). Some of Boerum Hill is PS 38 which is a struggling school. BH is PS8 which has a major overcrowding problem. If private school then I would do Boerum Hill or Cobble Hill still, BH has hardly any decent restaurants but is the best for trains [ Reply | More ]

You would have to take into account real estate taxes and tax deductions from interest on mortgage which would depend on your income. [ Reply | More ]

No way to get it that precise because you have not given how much of the mortgage is interest payments (deductible) as opposed to principal, how much of maintenance is property tax or building mortgage interest and thus deductible, and what your tax bracket is. Let's say 1/2 each- then $3050 using a 35% tax rate. Whether you would be AMT complicates things too- would raise it if you are. [ Reply | More ]

We can't calculate without knowing everything about your income taxes - property taxes- and mortgage interest. YOU can though - you know all the inputs- bust out an Excel spreadsheet and dig deep into that brain for your basic accounting calcs learned in like Sophomore year of HS.. and if you can't pull them up - GOOGLE - or use Excel help. It should take you no more than 5min. to figure an exact number. [ Reply | More ]
