Re: Is it worth getting an Amex card?

As mentioned above there are several different types of cards. In my case, the Amex platinum means your travel insurance is included if you pay for holidays with the card. You have a very useful consierge service and if using affiliated hotels got can get automatic later check out, upgrade on arriva...

Re: Orthodontics

Whatever you do don’t do 6 month smile or whatever it’s called . All they do is “initial alignment” braces do the same only the rest of the time is making sure the bite is correct and final placement is what takes time. You don’t want to mess with the bite, especially on young kids. I’d go with what...

Re: Two or three year gap between siblings?

A child is a blessing, not a guarantee. What I mean is, aim roughly, but don’t fret about exact timing. I gave a bigger gap because despite being young and healthy at the time , I had a disastrous pregnancy before finally having my second. To answer your question properly, 2 means 2 in nappies simul...

Re: Is a near 30 year age gap too big in a relationship?

I’d say yes , it’s too big .
Him being in his 50s he’s just about holding onto youth being blunt.

When she’s his age , she would be with a very old man !

Re: husband wants a tattoo and I am so embarrassed

I feel for you … embarrassing indeed . Perhaps convince him to put a temporary henna on his skin as a compromise and see if he gets sick of it ? Only the decide for the real thing . Your issue is, the more you protest the more he will want to “be a free spirit” and imagine himself like a young man w...

Re: No actual idea what my husband earns

Finances are a common source of disagreements and emotions because it’s very personal how you feel about them. It’s often a reflection of how you grew up and your early experiences. Personally, I came from a family where my parents shared everything. Just like you break bread as a family, you share ...

Re: Friend's husband is a sexual harrasser

My first thought was ; what do you mean you let’s him do his thing . However, your reaction was quite normal. Many J Saville victims froze and were so shocked they “let it” happen. Well done for now speaking about it . I reckon you’ve got no choice but to tell your friend. If she knows then it’s her...

Re: Told off by MIL for expecting my husband to do his family's presents.

So at no point before on even on the day of the big celebration did you not think to ask your husband what he got ? Or ask where the gift was on the way ? Being married and invited as a couple, you jointly failed to turn to with a present. It’s bad etiquette and your own internal politics of who get...

Re: Asked to keep children in hotel room for duration of weeding

What the hell?? They are not dogs ! She’s clearly psycho and will look back on this when she’s a mum and feel ashamed. Unless she owns the hotel, and can’t control what is done outside her own wedding in the function rooms. I’m surprised you are even up for a wedding with a tiny baby and is the brid...

Re: Witnessed mugging - how much force is reasonable?

in general the police don't want vigilante action unless it's life and death. Let's for arguments sake say you wrestled the boy for the jacket and he stabbed you. Then the trade off is, a replaceable jacket/contects and a stab wound. Sadly, it's best to not get involved physically. Having said that,...

Re: how to manage other half giving up his job for mine

Proceed with caution. I think you need to be very careful making any drastic decisions especially as you are pregnant and already plan to return very quickly. Please don’t take this as judgment, but from experience, you have no idea how you will feel as a new mum. So it’s can be a bit naive to assum...
