    The deadline for open enrollment is December 15th. My husband s job does not offer health insurance. My job only offers AFLAC (supplemental health insurance). We have a 3 year old son that definitely needs coverage, and I see my doctor every other month. We went through healthcare.gov last year and currently pay $127.47/mo for health insurance that covers the 3 of us. I believe our deductible is $6,000...crazy I know, but it s all we could afford. We did not meet that deductible this year (knew we wouldn t) and every time we see a Dr I pay at least $85 if not more. So of course we have to sign up for a new plan for 2019 (they arnt going to carry this one anymore). The cheapest one healthcare.gov offers JUST my husband & me is $233/mo with a $9,900 deductible! This is not including coverage for our son! *We have to prove that the state will not cover him first before they will quote him* How do ppl afford this!? Why does no one talk about this? Do I have any other options? Someone PLEASE help me! We both work fulltime, no state assistance. We make roughly $58,000 year combined. We have a mortgage, 1 car payment. We live modestly and on a budget. Can anyone give me advice here? Are there other places to apply? Does everyone pay this much and not complain? Is it just me?

  • Is it time education stopped favoring girls, or can girls only succeed if they receive special treatment?

    Schools were encouraged to start favoring girls under the Women's Educational Act, beginning in 1974. Today we see many schools offering "no boys allowed" college prep experiences for girls only. Are these and other ways girls receive special treatment still necessary? Were they ever necessary?

  • Why are men so quick to label women golddiggers?

    Best answer: There are going to be different reasons. Men who’ve managed to only date women with nothing in the way of a career or other plans for the future.

    Best answer: There are going to be different reasons. Men who’ve managed to only date women with nothing in the way of a career or other plans for the future. And then they believe those women are the norm. These men are probably the men who have a bit of a disliking for career women because supporting a woman is what gives them their role in life. They can’t see beyond it.

    Then there’s the type that falls for propaganda from the manosphere that treats women in developed countries like women in strictly defined castes in India and assumes women are all like that. Men who take this idea to heart take offence at the idea that, for a woman to “marry up”, it means the man is “ marrying down” and since traditionally men make the proposals, it is the man who has decided on this deal.

    Another reason men might say it, is when they’ve been through nasty divorces. It’s human nature to defend your position and divorces easily turn bitter. The wife can believe she is after the best outcome for her children but the man can see it as her being a gold digger.

    In general, it’s men with little, or limited experience in dating, and those who like to stereotype about women who believe this.

  • Was I wrong to have her sleep over?

    I went to a party with my gf Friday night and I had her sleep over at my house.

    I went to a party with my gf Friday night and I had her sleep over at my house. I hadn’t planned on her staying but we got dropped off to my house at 2 a.m. and had both drank and I really didn’t want to drive 30 minutes to drop her off. To be clear, we didn’t do anything. We just slept in the same bed. I dropped her off and when I got back my mom started yelling at me as soon as I got home. She said that it was trashy and started saying she was going to kick her out herself if it happened again. My dad wasn’t even mad about it and she was acting like that. I tried to ignore her but she didn’t stop until I left. Now she’s ignoring me and acting like I did something horrible. I’m 18 and am moving away come graduation, so this really seems petty. Should I tell her sorry to just smooth things over? I didn’t want to drive after drinking and my gf is not some hoe, so I don’t see anything wrong since I’m not a kid anymore.

    Best answer: What you saw today was what happens when you put a half-brained narcissist who thinks he knows everything in a room with two veteran politicians who actually do. Trump's such a dimwit he didn't even realize that he was manipulated into taking the full blame for the impending shutdown. That it actually is his fault is almost beside the point; what's major about this turn is that as the last two years have shown us, Trump never takes the blame for anything! Pelosi and Schumer knew exactly what they were doing in that meeting, and Trump played right into every damning trap they laid for him

    Also, it bears repeating that Trump himself said of Obama in 2013 that a government shut down is indicative of a weak president. Never mind that Trump has already caused one government shutdown this year; in claiming he's proud to be the guy who's about to do it again, he's pretty much saying that he's proud to be weak.

    So much for being a highly intelligent and stable genius.

  • Boss bullying me?

    Best answer: Either buck up or report it -- but know that there could be consequences if you do (even companies who have strong whistle-blower and no-retaliation policies struggle with retaliation). Do you have any witnesses? If not, it's a he-said she-said situation. I would start by documenting everything. Dates, details,... show more
