As much as I should want to skewer her for dating one, in my imagination like 50% of the men in whatever bumblefuck town she lives in are probably into having sex with children or animals or something. Am I surprised she wasn't dating a doctor? No. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] After two years of marriage counseling I told DH I wanted to separate and we both hired lawyers. He has told his lawyer to relay the information that he does not want to split (but he won't leave the house/do a trial separation unless I formally agree to 50% custody). He also apparently has been talking to my Mom and Stepfather pleading his case and asking for advice, and his best friend called me yesterday to talk and try to encourage me to stay (acted like it was of his own volition but I realized that DH emailed him asking him to). Just this morning he came up behind me in the kitchen and tried to give me a kiss on the ear and a big hug and I walked away and he was pissed. Is this normal DH behavior? I feel the same way I felt before, like he doesn't take my word/requests seriously. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Has he talked to you about it? What is wrong with the marriage? Why did you go to counseling? Why do you want out? Cheating? Abuse? [ Reply | More ]

yes he has talked to me about it, you have probably seen other posts in the past (hanging head), he is the dh I caught getting handjobs at massage parlors who confessed only what I had proof for, and was emotionally abusive prior to catching him and then afterward for about a year. We have been to 3 counselors and I never felt more comfortable trusting with him as the result. He can be a wonderful husband in many many other ways, and everyone likes him, but something got broken in me and I just want space at this point. [ Reply | More ]

Pitt. Television writer and producer. Income at the start of my career was $15,000 (yes, per YEAR) in 1988. Income today fluctuates between $500K-$1.5 million (usually closer to $600-ish). Solid liberal arts education (never went beyond BA). Absolutely worth it. God only knows where life would have taken me if I went elsewhere. [ Reply | More ]

I majored in computer science at my local state university. I have 2 H grads now who report to me. My education in my area of work is much stronger than theirs but I don't know why someone at H would choose CS degree. My college gave me opportunities to learn a lit but it didn't open doors. I was able to pay for it myself however. For my kids, I believe that the major they choose is more important than the college itself. [ Reply | More ]

Local state school and two private for grad schools, one of which I graduated. I am a Librarian - manager rank. My first job was in talent representation and I earned minimum wage, next job was in "copyediting" and I earned 29K (1996) the next 10 years I went from 50K-62K. I now earn 77K and am 42. Slow rise. My college did nothing to open doors. My professors geared me to teaching English, because it was all they knew and were appalled when I dropped out of graduate English program to work for talent agent. [ Reply | More ]

I'm an architect. I went to a very well-regarded non-ivy for undergrad degree, then went back and got an ivy master's right before the recession. Even though I consider my education to be excellent, I really believe the master's put me over the edge and allowed me access to much better positions and pay at a time when jobs were very scarce in my field and competition was fierce. Both my degrees get respect in my field, but the Ivy degree gets a completely different level of recognition from clients outside my field and put me on a different pay scale. [ Reply | More ]

All things being equal, not the HYP teacher. He will grow frustrated and bitter over the years because he will consider himself so much more intelligent than the billionaire parents of his pupils. People with high education / low income tend to have a particular animosity toward those with lower education / high income, and that would be his day-to-day life. I'd prefer to be with someone happy and content with life no matter the income level. [ Reply | More ]
