re: Why are couples that choose not to have kids looked down upon? - Maderan
I think the selfish idea stems from the meaning of life/values of the two different parties. If you don't want kids to focus on your career and have more disposable income/free time/ability to do want you want then I would say you are defining what you want to get out of life much more materialis...

re: US marriage rate hits new low. - Maderan
Statistics can really be spun and the original post is a reflection on that. 75% of college educated women are married and the divorce rate is only 20% for that group. Marriage, like anything else in life, is what you make of it. Those of you saying it is crazy and pointless are largely of the...

re: Help me invest 1 million. Really. - Maderan
Say no to insurance. Find a fee only advisor. You don't need an estate lawyer yet unless you have specific limits on what heirs can do with/or when they can access funds. Real estate investments would depend on liquidity needs, potential holding periods, and desire to have more tax issues/headaches ...

re: Letting someone else manage your money - Maderan
[quote]That is a rather silly argument. The point of saving for retirement and being ready for retirement is provide yourself a fixed income you can count on. You can't afford to lose significant chunks in retirement as you have no real income to replace the losses. Anyone suggesting that opening...

re: Letting someone else manage your money - Maderan
That is the type of account that a bank advisor would take and drop in annuity so be fearful of any advisors in that channel. Depending on the income needs and the need for capital preservation you could look at (in order of increasing risk to capital) CDs, Bond Ladder, Dividend Stocks. ...

re: Letting someone else manage your money - Maderan
Yes, no need for an advisor at that amount. Buy an index, reinvest and never sell. It is true that no one will watch your money like you do and in my opinion that is one of the reasons to use an advisor. You will stress over a every tick in the market, try and guess timing and you will be wrong e...

re: FCB Soccer Camp - Maderan
It is a licensed camp and club to several US companies and is through FCB Escola, not the actual coaches from La Masia. FCB Escola shares the Barcelona name and colors (because they pay the club fees) but there are a bunch of different FCB Escola organizations in Spain that are all run independently...

re: Got a check from 401K in the mail. Question about it. - Maderan
If you didn't request it then it is a force cash out. Only 20% federal has likely been withheld if that is the case. I would just take the cash as it is so small but your other option is to deposit the gross amount (before withholding) in an IRA within 60 days. Then when you file taxes you would ...
