Would Your Husband Be Able to Handle the Household If You Died?

In a recent chat with some lady friends, I was surprised to learn that the married 20 and 30-somethings all felt that if they died first, their husbands would be left completely incapable of handling bills, kids, even changing the sheets. The seemingly retro commercial trope of that oafish, inept husband seemed,… »8/27/15 1:30pm8/27/15 1:30pm

How Do You Know If Your Butt Lift Was ‘Worth It’? Just Ask RealSelf.com

How to Travel Like You're Not Totally Broke

Everyone wants to travel like they’re rich: flying first class, staying in top resorts, dining in the world’s best restaurants, and enjoying the coolest nightlife. But unfortunately, most of us are relegated to middle seats in coach, possibly dodgy hostels, cheap street cart food, and bars riddled with drunk… »8/07/15 8:00pm8/07/15 8:00pm

The Duggars Need Your Love, Support, and All Your Dolla Dolla Bills

Are the Duggars broke? That seems to be the question on a lot of people’s lips now that the family’s been cut off from their main source of income (their $40,000 an episode salary) and are putting their hands out more and more often, asking for their fans and supporters to buy their t-shirts and “send cards,” *wink… »8/05/15 12:00pm8/05/15 12:00pm

Would You Hesitate to Marry a Person Who Was Super Deep in Debt?

Of all the things you wish to align between you and your partner—values, procreative plans, a shared love for bad reality TV—perhaps debt should be higher on that list, particularly when research shows that money conflict tends to correlate with divorce. Have you ever asked yourself: How much debt is too much for love… »7/25/15 3:30pm7/25/15 3:30pm

I've Got My Mind on My Money and My Wedding on My Mind

A good reason to not marry me is that I am not exactly a financial genius. While I’ve always been good at making my own money rather than asking for it (except for when I asked the federal government for $50,000 to go to college with and they were like, “Yes, def,”), paying bills the moment my paycheck dumps into my… »7/01/15 1:00pm7/01/15 1:00pm

Why Don't Rich People Talk to Their Children About Money?

Nearly everyone agrees that children need to learn the value of a dollar, but how many parents are willing to tell their children the exact dollar figure of their own income? Turns out, not that many—and the more affluent the parent, the less likely they are to disclose their income to their offspring. The reasons for… »6/29/15 2:45pm6/29/15 2:45pm

Senator Charles Schumer Wants to End the Pay Gap Between Men and Women

The gender wage gap is like one of those bad party guests who routinely shows up empty-handed, drinks all the booze, and then passes out on the couch after peeing on it. Like, really? You're still kicking around, bro? It's 2015. Time to get current and out of your mom's basement. And please. Put the artichoke dip DOWN. »3/29/15 8:27pm3/29/15 8:27pm

Study: Domestic Violence Hurts Survivors' Finances and Work Stability

A study of nearly 4,000 Pennsylvania women suggests that domestic abuse can have a long-term and profoundly destructive impact on survivors' ability to earn money. The study authors looked at women who applied for civil orders of protection against their abusers between 1995 and 1996; they found for nearly all of… »3/20/15 4:20pm3/20/15 4:20pm
