    I am 28 (29 in two months). I am an attorney in NJ. I am recently single. I plan on purchasing my first home around the time I hit 30, and thus am saving up. I would like to have children one day (1-2, 3 absolute max). I do not personally need much space and am very minimalistic, I don't have much at all. How many bedrooms should I be looking for? Ideally, I want to purchase something that I will be in for a very long time. I don't want to buy too big of a house (energy costs, and quite frankly, I don't need the space at all right now), but I also don't want to have to move if I find a gal and have children. Does anyone have any advice? Much appreciated!

    Hey guys, So, my boyfriend bought a home before i met him which has a mortgage. I have a feeling he s going to ask me to move in with him soon and I m wondering what is to be expected of me in terms of money. I am more than happy to pay as it s more than fair but what should i suggest to pay? I m thinking I will offer to pay the water and electricity bills. Is that not enough or too much? I don t think he would have thought this far ahead to be honest so I want to have a "payment plan" set out to suggest to him. Thank you for any suggestions/advice!

  • After withdrawing all money from 401k at an early age and paid tax and penalty, Can Someone open a new 401k acct with their future employer?

    Best answer: Yes. You may own multiple 401k accounts. As long as an employer offers one, you can have one. What you did or didn't do with one from another company has nothing to do with another company's plan (with the exception that some plans will allow you to add that other company plan's assets to your current... show more

  • Will this look suspicious?

    My boyfriend doesn't have a bank account and he doesn't want to carry his money around when he gets his check cashed. Every week could I just deposit his cash into my bank?

  • Why is incurring debt not always a bad money-management strategy and may actually represent a good investment?

    Best answer: If you can get a greater return on your investment than the cost of servicing the debt, including payment of interest and reduction of principal, then it's foolish to not do this.
