Listed below are a number of of probably the most compelling questions from the week and hyperlinks to hours of recommendation studying. This week: unhealthy hair, a demise within the household, and big inheritances.

Expensive Prudence

Taking Grunge to a New Degree: I (she/her) and my boyfriend of three years are each in our late-30s. I actually adore this man, however in fact, no relationship or particular person is ideal, and I wouldn’t be writing except there was an issue to deal with. My good-looking, considerate, clever boyfriend doesn’t wash his hair. He’s clear and smells good, however he solely rinses his hair within the bathe and doesn’t usually contact it with shampoo (the remainder of him will get a as soon as over with an 18 in 1 {!!!} wash). This leaves his hair typically trying slick and heavy as if it’s nonetheless moist. We’re each white and his hair is ok and silky and appears to want extra periodic washing it isn’t getting.

I do know he doesn’t wash his hair as a result of he talked about as soon as that he thinks it’s detrimental. This was early in our relationship, and I didn’t see the necessity to remark when he didn’t look soiled. When he will get his hair minimize, the stylist washes it completely and when he comes residence, he seems so extremely good along with his hair fluffy and glossy. I discover myself actually trying ahead to his haircuts. How can I converse to him about possibly washing his hair a bit extra?

Care and Feeding

Bother with Daughter: Every of my in-laws handed away after a interval crammed with many sicknesses, hospitalizations, and needing steady each day care. My partner and I felt pleased with having served them at residence of their final years of want. It was a loud residence with many attempting days towards the tip—needing to drive my in-laws to train, take drugs, clear them, and so on. as they had been going via each bodily and psychological decline. We had residence nurse aides assist us in the previous couple of months, it had turn into so bodily exhausting.

One in all my youngsters, who’s 7 years previous, appears to have witnessed some episode of this (one thing bodily) when she will need to have been 5 or 6 and has on a number of events stated that she is aware of what I did to grandma and that I despatched her to God. She even makes some bodily motion of her hand to her face to that impact. I like my daughter deeply and he or she has not been saying this with any kind of damaging emotions however in additional of a matter-of-fact approach, as in “I noticed what you probably did, you probably did this (some motion), and now Grandma is with God.”

I’m horrified on the risk that my daughter may deliver this up in class, with pals, or in another public scenario. On the similar time, I don’t need to sow the seeds of gaslighting that she didn’t see what she claims. Nevertheless, my makes an attempt to take a seat down and make clear the scenario haven’t been useful. My partner finds it hilarious, however we’ve got gone via a interval of estrangement. I really feel there isn’t any one I can speak to who’s going to take me severely with out entering into bother first. What do I do?

Do It

Conflicted and Ashamed of It: I’ve a pen pal who I used to attend center college with. I by no means talked to her in center college, although she tried to speak to me. She contacted me on Fb a number of years in the past and we’ve talked often ever since. She not too long ago instructed me that she has had a crush on me since center college. She has been flirting with me. She despatched me an image of her in the midst of a secular dialog and claimed she didn’t know why she did that. She instructed me I ought to ship her an image of myself so she may see what I seem like. I didn’t need to at first, however I ultimately relented and simply despatched one in all my face.

This lady is married and supposedly getting a divorce, attributable to her husband allegedly giving her the cold-shoulder throughout a most cancers scare that she suffered initially of the yr. In current months, her sister and uncle have each been in main accidents. I need to inform her in absolute phrases that I’m not all in favour of her romantically or sexually. Nevertheless, these laborious occasions she continues to endure make me really feel responsible for desirous to make my emotions clear, so I say nothing. What ought to I do? Do I say nothing? Do I give in and go on a date along with her? Am I mistaken for not attempting to be drawn to her?

Pay Dust

New Tax Bracket: Not too long ago, my husband inherited $500,000 in chunks. We paid off over $40,000 in bank card and mortgage debt in addition to our mortgage. We had $189,000 left on our mortgage and the home is value over $500,000 as is. The factor is, the home is in shambles. The one purpose it’s value that a lot is as a result of it’s a extremely sought-after space. We received fortunate as a result of we purchased it through the recession along with his dad’s assist. My in-laws did the minimal to financially assist their youngsters and that’s high-quality. I by no means anticipated something. After years of trauma from having principally no cash and dwelling off of credit score, we’ve got zero want to do silly issues with the cash, like purchase a brand new automotive (we personal those we’ve got now), go on trip, or purchase a brand new home. We’re doing upgrades on our present home proper now. The wiring must be upgraded (it was aluminum wiring), the siding is rotting, and we’re doing the government-funded inexperienced upgrades and placing an addition on our home. It’s been our dream since shopping for the home.

Is that this a dumb determination? I made a degree of getting monetary advisors who put cash within the inventory market. Additionally they received us arrange with Roth IRAs and school funds for our children. We simply received the ultimate $250,000 test final week. I’m so apprehensive about operating out of cash. Sure, we work, however are a small enterprise. I don’t know if I’m attempting to persuade myself that upgrading the home is sensible as a result of it provides to our greatest asset or if I’m being silly with the cash. Having to deceive our children about why we haven’t gone grocery purchasing isn’t a life both of us ever needs to dwell once more. What can we do?
