I've been married 15 years and am just about thinking of getting a joint bank account, but would agree you need to be explicitly on the same page, APS.

kinder, Wednesday, 23 October 2019 20:42 (three months ago) link

congrats dudette! (also providing healthcare to a partner is a good enough reason to get married. I don't give a shit about marriage but at the same time I don't give a shit about it so I also don't give a shit about divorcing if I want to.)

yeah, prenups are very worthwhile to protect each party and set expectations even for oddest things. We do have one joint account to pay for joint bills, activities, trips, etc. and then we have our own separate accounts with our own money. We've lived together for long stretches of time and lived apart for long stretches of time, each of us has see-sawed in who makes more or less money and we on our own try to make everything even. The apt in ny is only in my name and the apt in chile is only in his name. Relationships are always evolving but we never have serious disagreements because we talk through everything and big decisions are mutual decisions. And it helps to really like each other personally.

Yerac, Wednesday, 23 October 2019 20:53 (three months ago) link

In that other thread where I was talking about the couple of 10+ years who have completely separate finances, still venmo each other money for, like, buying takeout and are trying to buy their first house together, this would be totally fine except one has been complaining to me for 10+ years about being the only one buying toilet paper and dish soap and how the other one is stingy. Ugh. I told him he has to make peace with it or move on.

Yerac, Wednesday, 23 October 2019 21:05 (three months ago) link

eep, best wishes to you + o/h, io

I don't think the plan is for a general joint account - at least, I hope it isn't! just for paying the mortgage out of, and maybe household bills (at the moment we've split the utility bills in a fairly arbitrary manner but I think it works out about even)

living apart sounds good but I do go a bit mad if I'm on my own in the evenings. maybe I want a "granny flat" so I can hide away or open the door and call it all the same living space depending on how I feel that day

to Branwell, way back: oh yeah, my paralysis extends to some quite mundane things too*, but that does sound extreme as a recent development, and all the more so if it's left you feeling not like you! hope the Dr helps

(* on at least one occasion I've spent so long trying to decide whether to eat something from the cupboard for lunch or to go to the shop and buy something more interesting that it's suddenly evening and too late to be having lunch at all - though these days it would do me good to forget to eat more often)

a passing spacecadet, Wednesday, 23 October 2019 21:10 (three months ago) link

I'd love to be able to be with my bf but still live in my own place. I only really moved in with him because he lost his job and was about to be evicted and he has 2 kids, and I couldnt sit by and let that happen.

I thought I was feeling physically, mentally, and emotionally depleted. Sure enough, I have my period. HOW I wish I'd just go through menopause already!

Anne Hedonia (j.lu), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 19:08 (one month ago) link

LOL, the menopause is basically 2 full years of nonstop PMT.

Branwell with an N, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 19:42 (one month ago) link

I have literally tonight just started 2 different kinds of hormones. (I was supposed to start sooner after I saw the doctor, but she breezily said, "start on day 1 of your next period" and it's like LOL, menopause - who knows when that will be? Two weeks late, that's when.) I have no idea how this is going to affect me and I'm feeling deeply, deeply weird about it. (LOL, what if it turns me into a cis?)

Branwell with an N, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 19:43 (one month ago) link

I am not looking forward to the menopause -- I figure I've got at least 5 years -- partly because after the menopause is when all the cancers kick in.

sarahell, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 19:48 (one month ago) link

I got a new gyno in a spanish speaking country so I have been having my spouse come with me to all my appts because I'm not sure I will be able to communicate well enough for what I need. So it's like, making sure he can relay that I have new painful rectal cramps when I have to poop during my period and new lower back pain during ovulation and my period. But then the gyno ended up having gone to school in Virginia and spoke perfect english which I found out while in stirrups. He still had to chaperone the transvag ultrasound and mammogram though. Anyway, fibroids!

Yerac, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 20:25 (one month ago) link

Fibroids were the cause of my uterus eviction, which I which I'd done sooner. Like, when I was 16.

i am through to the other side of menopause (it was not at all an easy transition, especially the chronic anxiety) and i think i’ve never felt better. i love it. it’s so underrated.

I think I may be perimenopausal, at least that is how I explain the fact that my brain is getting mushy.

The other day I was thinking "oh god I'd be so fucked if I had to do organic chemistry again!" then I'm like wait there is zero need for me to do organic chemistry again ever in my life, what does it matter.

it didn't occur to me to blame my hormones but maybe it's a sign i'm getting stale

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 21:37 (one month ago) link

my anti-anxiety meds make my brain mushier -- i had to change them last year (what I was on before did not have that effect). On the one hand, less anxiety, on the other, I actually can't remember what all the businesses were on the block of Grand Ave. between Broadway and Webster St. in 2001.

sarahell, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 22:01 (one month ago) link

"oh god I'd be so fucked if I had to do organic chemistry again!"

I do remember about half dozen of my housemates in college expressing feelings of fucked-ness re organic chemistry, and they had fresh 20 year old brains!

Yerac, Tuesday, 26 November 2019 22:13 (one month ago) link

Oh damn I did not! I wish I had. Apparently the thing was the size of a 3 month pregnancy. Fibroid babbies.

I do have pictures of the inside of my left knee joint from recent arthroscopic surgery. The ortho pointed out "crab meat appearance" of some articular cartilage and damn if that was not the perfect descriptor.

xxpost Guys don't message me. I've never gotten a dick pic, unsolicited or otherwise. And in my current headspace, I'm convinced that this is another symptom of some mysterious mark of old maidishness.

(The more rational explanation is that I somehow maintain boundaries and self-respect of a nature that repels fuccbois. The problem is that I seem to also repulse the more decent and mature specimens of the gender.)

I've never gotten one either, jlu, and I did online dating for over 10 years although not on Tinder. Yeah I was gonna say, maybe they are correctly reading your level of intolerance for bullshit. Although I was primed for all the bullshit in those years, and I put up with a lot of nonsense. But no dick pics.

I don’t take offense at these pics. And they quickly realize it doesn’t impress me. They flirt and I don’t mind. But I rarely if ever engage. I have quite a few who have shown interest. But eh. Especially when it’s based on my love for music. Except now this one guy. Don’t know how this escalated so quickly. We’ll see where it goes.

I thought if I never got that first cat I couldn't become a crazy cat lady, right? Life, uh, found a way. This is Baby, one of my mother's cats, and she is a SPOILED BRAT. She constantly yells to be fed, tries to help herself to anything I'm eating or drinking, and bit me on the nose one morning when I wouldn't get up and feed her.

So I suppose it's appropriate that I'm feeling the effects of what I assume is perimenopause--my last period didn't properly end so much as diminish to a trickle over the last two weeks. I suppose I ought to contact my doctor, but I expect to be told it's part of the Mysteries of Menopause, and can't be treated other than with powerful hormones and/or major surgery. I don't even mind it that much, except I continue to live in hope of finally meeting a man who DOESN'T retreat when I try to show interest, and maybe getting laid once more.

[Nathom: My instinct is to tell you to stay away from married men. But I've never known what to do with men, other than keep them at arm's length.]

She sheds enough to make a new cat every three days. But she has surprisingly few hairballs for such a longhaired cat. And I had to physically remove her from my computer desk to make this post. But sometimes I'll be watching a movie on my laptop, and she'll snuggle up between me and the computer and purr.
