Actually, I was just reading a book this morning which mentioned the "over 50%" thing so I really appreciate this thread. At the time I thought "I bet it's all those people getting married five times that are ruining the stats for the rest of us". Thanks sandi_k and kombat for th...

It sounds like he just needs a place to hide the paper, like a neat little box, or filing cabinet or cupboard with doors that shut so you can't see what's inside (all depending on your budget). I know a man whose wife hates clutter and they compromised by giving him a little section of the house whe...

Wow, pretty intense story. But good for you! That is quite an accomplishment to have a 3-4 month emergency fund now after such a difficult time. So where are you originally from? If/when you move again, where will you go and what will you do different? I wish you the best on your journey! I have tw...

I've been pondering how I'm in a much better place financially than a year ago, so I thought I'd call it a success story. In October 2008 I moved to a new country and I wasn't keeping track of my money so it ran out. I had a job but it took a little while before I started getting paid monthly at the...

I don't want to give the impression that studying mathematics can't be good financially. There are some very rich mathematicians. For example, James Simons: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Harris_Simons. He was a very successful pure mathematician who founded a hedge fund. And I'm sure there are ...

i disagree that a great life requires a "great income" - an individual's defined great life may or may not require a particular income level in order to be great. You forget, it takes money to have options and it takes options to have a most fulfilled life, filled with joy, travel, music,...

I am also a Phd but in engineering. I sort of know what you are talking about. And I pretty much agree with galactic. One observation though I would add is that you sound more like you need a vacation rather than a career change. I strongly suspect that if you became an admin assistant you would li...

I'm curious...before you and your boyfriend spent all that time, and money on your Ph.D's did you first determine what opportunities, pay and demand would be for such a degree? It sounds like the prospects are not good, or am I wrong? And if this is the case, then the lesson for you (and others rea...

Happy New Year! I thought I should provide an update. My boyfriend's really rather nice, even though he seems overly bossy sometimes. His whole family's a bit like this, so I think it's just their way of communicating. Anyway, he did come around eventually. Partly he was upset because he was afraid ...

Thanks for all your replies. They're all so different! but it gives me a lot to consider. My boyfriend's talking to me again, but I think I'll let him digest what I said for a while before I bring up the topic again. I just wanted to say thanks for your opinions now. To be honest I'm not entirely su...

I'm contemplating a career change because I'm feeling really drained in my current career. My job is competitive, it takes up a lot of my energy, the long-term prospects in my home country are virtually nil for someone like myself (i.e., not wondrously talented) and I'm currently living on a differe...

Also, yes I'm a stay-at-home sort of person too - I read, I paint, I watch TV, I do origami, I've recently started doing yoga, and of course, I do maths. I didn't know that was an advantage in a parent.

As a mathematician, yes you can easily afford children. Even if you had to take a lower quality job your skill set is robust enough to make plenty of money. In fact, there is almost never a time that you couldn't get started, you'll discover that you're significantly more resourceful then you thoug...

MossySF: How did you make money as a little kid? Our parents owned rental units so we did all the maintenance work. We never hired anybody to do anything. Basically, we did everything from putting up walls to making furniture to running phone lines to working in the garden. If we use the 1% mainten...
