I'm a girl, and if my boyfriend got me a ring that cost 2 months of his salary, I'd think he was crazy and reconsider marrying him. The economy is tanking! Her family will be just as happy if you get engaged with no ring, or with a $20 ring, or with a $3000 ring. Once you feel more secure with your ...

My goal is to get rich slowly, and I have a lot of risk tolerance because I'm not going to use this money at all except for a house in 5-10 years and retirement in 35+ years. But, I'm not willing to spend time tracking my investments. If buy and hold tends to be a good strategy, and it doesn't requi...

What percent of your money should you have in the stock market? Right now, I have $32,000 in checking and savings accounts, and $31,000 in the stock market. Of that, $18,000 is in my retirement (so not completely in stocks but mostly) and $13,000 is in mutual funds I bought myself. So I have a 50/50...

...before you all criticize me for saying he has a low latte factor when he buys beer and coffee, he really does- he never eats out or shops at all- he spends a lot of energy trying to not spend money, but he really just needs to earn more money.

Hey- thanks for all your comments- it seems like the obvious solution is the easy one, which is to not say anything and let him take care of himself- I mean, he's older, and he's obviously gotten along this far. This is a good example of someone with a very low "latte factor," who needs to...

Be careful with your relationship- nothing kills a relationship like being together 24/7 with no job, no friends, and nothing but each other.

I actually went to Europe with my boyfriend, and we broke up rather miserably (for him) 6 months into our planned 1-year trip.

Hi everyone- Do you have any advice for helping a significant other who is completely broke every month? This is nothing new to me- I always seem to date guys who have no money (we probably work better together because I'm naturally frugal. :-) My boyfriend is frugal too, but he's been a grad studen...

Hi- I have about $3000 saved up that I want to invest in a mutual fund. I have an account with an online broker, but their research tools are hard to use. I am interested in investing in something like green energy or anything that is environmentally responsible (and also has a decent return!) The r...
