re: Married Men; How Do You Manage Shared Expenses With Your Wife? (Newly Married) - RoyalWe
In an idealistic world, I agree with those who say to join accounts. Experience, unfortunately, nudged me the other way.

Eagle Rare is my go-to for Old Fashioneds. On a whim I bought some Woodford Reserve to sip, but if I'm drinking neat I usually go with Scotch -- Lagavulin 16 or McCallan 12....

re: Married Men; How Do You Manage Shared Expenses With Your Wife? (Newly Married) - RoyalWe
My wife and I joined our accounts once we were married. About about five years I separated the accounts. I had very good reasons, none had anything to do with greed. Today we both maintain separate credit cards and bank accounts. We share a joint account for joint expenses. We would have been d...

re: Question on estimating retirement - RoyalWe
What lynxcat said. If you are certain you can / will liquidate then count them. You can value them at a lower value to hedge. A few thoughts arise regarding taking financial advice: 1. Don't ever let anyone do your thinking for you. 2. A wise man receives counsel from many, but then mak...

Look, stupid fricker, it won't go down like that. There is zero chance that a "mass confiscation" will happen at my solitary house. So, I'm sure my family will have time to come to grips with what's happening and plan accordingly....

It's difficult for you to believe there are stable geniuses out there who are willing to die for something. "Give me liberty or give me death" rings hollow to you because you have no principles. Violence in any form is horrible. Any veteran will tell you that war is hell realized on Earth. I don...
