I'm actually a little disturbed by DR's religious model. That he only allows those who belong to evangelical Christian churches to become certified as credit counselors sort of bugs me (I've had mixed experience with these churches separating what is Caesar's from what is God's--- some of their mini...

So, my ex-fiancé's family's nightmarish dysfunctions regarding money just ended up costing me nearly $4000, pretty much wiping out my emergency fund (sigh. Because money is "the root of all evil," that means it's evil itself and it's okay to lie about it to the people you care about, and b...

"Repeat after me: we are all individuals." Er, I'm with those above. If I wanted someone to say I should not use my brain and adapt advice to my circumstances, there are plenty of places I could go. I like Josh because he portrays the process of his choices. He admits he doesn't have it al...

If your parents are cosigners on the SL, you might carry a minimal 10 year term ins. Certain student loans have a policy, I am told, of letting the cosigners off the hook if the borrower dies--- some sort of built-in insurance policy, I understand. I have no idea what the truth of the matter is, bu...

Not to be disingenuous, but I didn't get really successful about changing myself and my life until I started making the decision to change myself and my life every single day--- sometimes six or seven times a day. It sounds wishy-washy, but when you do a little every time you start over, those chang...

What size are the individual loans? Are they snowball-able?

Prisons are pretty hungry for any reading material, depending on where you are. There's even some not-for-profits that will transport them.

JH, what's the thinking on recessions among the cognoscenti? To me, an utter layperson, it seems that periods of little of no economic growth are natural, like winter, and I have to wonder why we're going to such Herculean lengths to avoid it. Cushion the effects, yes, and recover swiftly, but is it...

Pre-nup is not optional: I have a child from a previous marriage, and he has family money. All this phobia of pre-nups seems to me ridiculous; they also provide instructions in case one of the partners in the marriage dies, and it's an excellent talking point. Plus, you make sure that your partner's...

Rush? We know where we're going; we can saunter for a while. We haven't set a date, so it could be next week (no WAY am I springing for a $10000 reception on one week's notice, though! Not even if I could find a caterer or a venue) or it could be around the national Tricentennial so we can have a ni...

Arg! I'm a second-time bride, so I want a back-of-the-chapel wedding with no attendants--- anything else would seem improper to me, and we can have a nice garden party afterwards. But he wants the full monty, since it's his first time, and he's the first in a large family to be getting married, and ...

2009! Not much longer, even though it feels like forever! You are both working so hard and doing so well; I hope you are proud of yourself.
