[ - ] When I got married (second marriage), I signed a prenup saying children from first marriage got everything, but DH would take out an insurance policy for me. We are both getting older, he says insurance getting expensive, I don't need so much, he wants to reduce amount. I said fine, but then I get some of his assets. He said assets already in trust for his kids, I cannot touch. If he cuts insurance, will I have an action against his estate? Can I sue his estate? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Do not let him out of the insurance requirement. The prenup will rule -- the court can't take away his children's rights to satisfy his obligation to you. See an attorney, but he absolutely positively must maintain the life insurance policy that he contracted to provide. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] There is a woman who reports to me who is simply a rockstar. She's a bit timid and not very assertive, but she is head and shoulders better performer than people who are senior. She always apologizes and in the rare event she has to leave the office a bit early, she sends me e-mails apologizing profusely.

Why don't you tell her that her performance is exemplary and professional. And while you appreciate the check ins, you want her to know that her attendance is also a professional matter and she need not apologize for flexing time - that being able to do that is an upside to her being a professional. If you can work it in, maybe educate her a little bit on overapologizing making her seem less than or weak - that it's a common trait for women but one that we need to be aware of and fight because it undercuts us in the office.

My Dearest, if weariest, world traveler: while the days of luxury travel have slipped behind us like the Titanic into icy waters of yore, your elders would implore you to preserve a modicum of modesty and decorum, even while en route to what may be debaucherous adventure! Pajamas are acceptable behind the doors of Delta Gamma or Alpha Phi, but aboard Delta or BA, opt for a more suitable black legging and loose blouse. [ Reply | More ]

My Dear Girl...I, more than anyone, lament the absence of respectable undergarments from the wardrobes of women of the Twenty-first century, so I'm heartened that you've thought to ask. Let me opine that for a tasteful tea, the crinoline should fall just shorter than the hem, and the hem fall shorter than the knee. Following this modest guide, Monsieur Beauregard will surely look upon you with beau regard, indeed. [ Reply | More ]

A pastor at a church where we have attended services a few times has invited my family to their home for dinner. This will likely be where we regularly attend as it's the only church in our denomination in our new town. What do I bring? [ Reply | More ]

Gentle Reader... I'm thankful to hear that Sunday services still serve as a bastion of warmth to our newest neighbors. I doubt I'm presumptuous in assuming that while the Reverend Mister extended the invitation, the meal will in fact be executed by the Reverend Missus. In this case, a brief call to the good lady is in order, to introduce yourself, extend thanks, and politely inquire what you might bring. She will, of course, insist on no contribution other than your company. You graciously acquiesce to her wishes, and offer only a small box of fine chocolates for their later enjoyment.

He's been blowing hot air since this whole Trump thing started. He stands up and says pretty words and then toes the Trump line right after - Just like he did here.

[ - ] Dh and I bought a brand new car 14 months ago. We use it once a week. Took it in for an oil change and they claim the brake pads are a 4, and should be a 12. $400 to fix. We purchased every insurance they offered, but somehow, this is not covered. How can a brand new car, so infrequently used, have this issue? What do we do? I hate this Mah!t so much. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Its rare but possible. I agree you should take it to another auto mechanic for a second opinion. It is also possible that you or your DH rides the car hard. Ex: constant hard braking, sudden accelerations, etc...Different driving styles can definitely impact a car's longevity. DH drives a newer car but he wears down his brake pads probably every 2 years because he had more of a lead foot than I do (I drive my cars super gently and they rarely need maintenance).

brake pads are regular maintenance so no insurance will cover that. Either the mechanic is not telling the truth or one of you is driving around with your foot on the brake (my friend's grandmother had to get new brake pads every year). [ Reply | More ]

Somebody may ride the brake. I always used to forget to release the parking brake. You probably have an automatic, but I once had a standard shift that had brake wear because of a problem with the clutch. [ Reply | More ]
