Hey, Gen-Xer. Feel like no one’s paying attention to you?
If you think it’s all about Baby Boomers and Millennials, you’re not alone. In fact, according to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center in 2014, Gen-Xers are indeed the neglected middle child.
As love is in the air, thanks to Saint Valentine, it’s a good time to think about same-sex weddings and the pressures to stick to traditional wedding norms.
The month between Thanksgiving and New Year’s is a time filled with expiration dates. Both for budgets and diets.
The holidays, as merry as they are, come with expensive expectations like large, festive dinners and gift buying (are we really sure it’s better to give than receive…) that can drain a bank account quickly.
So, how does one prepare at the last-minute for the coming holiday spending spree? Well, there’s a hack (or ten) for that.
With the legalization of same-sex marriage, queer couples are getting married as fast as they can say “I do.” And many of us are now considering if The Stork should follow Cupid into our newly minted marriages.
On one hand, it’s helpful that children are never a surprise to same-sex couples. On the other, it makes having children expensive. And add to that the fact that no matter how much money a couple spends, having children is never a guarantee.

When I was young, single and fit as a fiddle I applied for life insurance through my employer. Similar to this article, by all accounts I didn’t need life insurance.

I have three nieces. I thought if I pass away, I had nothing to leave to them or other family or friends. Other than memories – and memories with me are fun – there would be nothing left of me. Poof! An inheritance to my nieces to help pay for college, their first home or to travel the world (my preference) would be a great legacy, I thought.
