Husband is making an attempt to destroy my credit score earlier than we divorce: cash recommendation.

Lieber Pay-Dreck,

Ich habe ein Dilemma bezüglich meines Mannes und meiner Kreditwürdigkeit. An den Feiertagen holte ich eine Kaufhauskarte heraus. Ich habe weder die Karte noch eine Abrechnung erhalten. Ich habe im Dezember und Januar über seine Website an den Laden geschrieben und nie eine Antwort erhalten. Meine Kreditwürdigkeit war damals 750. Ich fand heraus, dass es über 100 Punkte gefallen ist. Ich habe gerade diese Woche eine Rechnung aus dem Geschäft vom Juni gefunden, als ich nach Hypothekeninformationen suchte. Die Rechnung war hinter den Schreibtisch meines Mannes gefallen und lag unter der Fußleistenheizung. Mein Mann möchte sich trennen, aber ich denke, er versucht absichtlich, meine Kreditwürdigkeit im Voraus zu ruinieren. Wie gehe ich jetzt vor? Bezahle ich nur die Rechnung? Versuche ich mit jemandem zu sprechen? Gehe ich zu einer Kreditauskunftei, um Dinge zu reparieren? Mein Mann bestreitet alles, aber ich glaube ihm nicht.

—Zum Trocknen aufgehängt

Lieber zum Trocknen aufgehängt,

Das erste, was Sie tun müssen, ist, das Unternehmen anzurufen, zu erklären, was passiert ist und die Karte zu schließen. Wenn Sie sich mit einem ersten Kauf im Geschäft angemeldet haben, wussten Sie, dass dieses Konto über ein Guthaben verfügt, und ich empfehle Ihnen, diesen Betrag so gut wie möglich nach unten auszuhandeln. Es ist frustrierend, dass niemand auf Ihre Online-Anfragen geantwortet hat, aber Sie hätten die Kundenservice-Hotline anrufen sollen, nachdem Sie keine Antwort erhalten haben. Wenn Sie beim Öffnen nichts berechnet haben, melden Sie den betrügerischen Kauf, wenn Sie das Unternehmen anrufen. Das Unternehmen hat so viele Tage Zeit, um die Belastung rückgängig zu machen. Wenn das nicht funktioniert, Schreiben Sie an die Kreditauskunfteien. Sie benötigen einen Nachweis über Ihre Kommunikation mit dem Unternehmen und alle Schritte, die Sie unternommen haben, um das Problem zu beheben. Sie sollten alle Aufzeichnungen während dieses Prozesses aufbewahren und ein besseres System für die zukünftige Überwachung Ihrer Rechnungen finden.

Dann möchten Sie Ihre kostenlose jährliche Kreditauskünfte von den drei Büros und gehen Sie mit einem feinen Kamm darüber. Ein Rückgang Ihrer Kreditwürdigkeit um 100 Punkte ist ziemlich signifikant, und Sie müssen sich bewusst sein, ob noch etwas dazu beigetragen hat. Wenn Ihr Ehemann in Ihrem Namen Schulden aufgenommen hat, ist es besser, dies jetzt zu wissen als vor dem Scheidungsverfahren. Verschiedene Staaten haben unterschiedliche Gesetze darüber, wie mit Schulden während einer Scheidung umgegangen wird, deshalb sollten Sie Ihren Anwalt diesbezüglich fragen. Vielleicht möchten Sie auch vorübergehend frieren Sie Ihr Guthaben ein und ändere deine Passwörter auf allen Konten, die nicht geteilt werden. Viel Glück.

Lieber Pay-Dreck,

Ich bin der Autor, der sich meldete über die Ehe. Ich habe Ihre Antwort sehr geschätzt! Ich werde das EAP meines Unternehmens verwenden, um mit einem Anwalt zu diskutieren, und mein Verlobter und ich haben ein solides Gespräch über die Feinheiten unserer Finanzen mit Familienmitgliedern geführt.

All das heißt, jetzt hat er eine Frage zum Gespenst des Studienkredits. Ich habe keine, und er hat 35.000 Dollar. Er macht sich keine Illusionen, dass Joe Biden wird seine Kredite zurückzahlen, noch erwartet er von mir einen Beitrag (und wäre beschämt, wenn ich es versuchen würde). Aber er hat seine Studienkredite während des COVID-Moratoriums nicht bezahlt und hat es nicht eilig, den durchschnittlichen Betrag zu überschreiten, den er monatlich zahlt (über 300 US-Dollar, einschließlich Zinsen), sobald dies wieder aufgenommen wird – obwohl er über 15.000 US-Dollar an Ersparnissen verfügt.

Ich verstehe, Einsparungen sind hart verdient. Tatsache ist jedoch, dass die winzigen Zinsen, die er verdient, wenn er das Geld auf der Bank hält, von den Zinsen übertroffen werden, die sich zusätzlich zu seinen Studienkrediten ansammeln. Wäre es nicht besser, einen guten Teil dieser Ersparnisse zu nehmen, um die Schulden zu begleichen? Ich schlage nicht vor, dass er den Inhalt seines Kontos unterschreibt, aber es würde sich sicherlich auszahlen, mehr von diesen Schulden von seinem Teller zu bekommen? Seine anderen Finanzen sind in Ordnung. Oder soll er einfach seine monatliche Zahlung erhöhen?

—Mein Verlobter verdreht die Augen, während ich das schreibe

Liebes Augenrollen,

Aaaah! Ich freue mich sehr, wieder von Ihnen zu hören und freue mich, dass die Resonanz gut angekommen ist. Es hört sich so an, als ob es den Dialog für ein positives Finanzgespräch eröffnet hätte, was genau das war, was diese Situation brauchte!

Kommen wir nun zu den Studienkrediten, die Biden nicht zahlen wird. Ihr Verlobter hat Recht, wenn er sich weigert, sein Sparkonto aufzulösen, um seine Studienkredite zu bezahlen. Sie haben absolut Recht, wenn Sie sagen, dass einige tausend Dollar beeinflussen, wie viel er während der Laufzeit seines Darlehens zahlt. Aber im Moment würde ich es nicht empfehlen. Wenn uns die letzten anderthalb Jahre etwas gelehrt haben, dann ist es, dass unsere Wirtschaft im Handumdrehen umgedreht werden kann. Es ist jetzt wichtiger denn je, sicherzustellen, dass Sie über einen Notfallfonds verfügen, der die Ausgaben für drei bis sechs Monate decken kann. Es ist fantastisch, dass er über 15.000 Dollar hat, aber ich würde es nicht anfassen.

Es gibt noch ein paar Möglichkeiten, wie er den Betrag, den er im Laufe der Zeit zahlen wird, verringern kann. Sie haben bereits eines erwähnt: Erhöhen Sie seine monatlichen Zahlungen. Er kann mit dem beginnen Schulden-Schneeball-Methode, und sobald er sieht, wie schnell sich die zusätzlichen Zahlungen summieren, wird er versucht sein, seine Zahlungsbeträge noch weiter zu erhöhen. (Dies ist eine besonders gute Strategie, wenn er bereits die Sechs-Monats-Marke für Notfalleinsparungen erreicht hat.) Er kann auch nachsehen seine Studienkredite refinanzieren, möglicherweise den Zinssatz senken. Und schließlich sollte er dafür sorgen, dass seine Ersparnisse in einem ertragsstarkes Konto. Lass mich wissen, wie es funktioniert!

Geldberatung von Athena und Elizabeth, wöchentlich geliefert.

Lieber Pay-Dreck,

Mein Vater starb, als ich in der Grundschule war. Ich erhielt einen bescheidenen Betrag an Lebensversicherungsgeldern, den meine Mutter auf ein Anlagekonto einzahlte. Sie würde Geld von diesem Konto abheben, um in meinem Namen Dinge zu bezahlen – wie Kleidung oder die Privatschule, auf die sie mich schicken wollte. Sie entschied sich, nicht zu arbeiten, und ihr neuer Ehemann war oft arbeitslos oder unterbeschäftigt. Wir lebten im Grunde alle von den Leistungen meiner Hinterbliebenen der sozialen Sicherheit. Sie hat mich finanziell abgeschnitten, sobald ich die High School abgeschlossen hatte und die Leistungen aufhörten (also habe ich sie vielleicht finanziell abgeschnitten?).

Obwohl ich sehr genügsam lebte, war das Konto am Ende des Colleges auf fast die Hälfte geschrumpft, was ich ursprünglich erhalten hatte, aber ich habe es seitdem nicht mehr angerührt. Jetzt ist das Guthaben fast wieder auf dem ursprünglichen Betrag, den ich von meinem Vater erhalten habe.

Ich bin finanziell nicht sehr gebildet, aber mein Mann ist es. Er hat klug in den Aktienmarkt investiert, so dass er sich jetzt zurückziehen könnte, wenn er wollte (er ist Anfang 40). Ich habe ehrlich das Gefühl, dass er mein Geld genauso sinnvoll, wenn nicht sogar besser anlegen könnte als den Investmentfonds, aber ich habe eine emotionale Bindung zu diesem Geld, weil es im Grunde alles ist, was ich von Papa übrig habe. Außerdem habe ich aufgrund von COVID nicht daran gearbeitet, unsere Kinder beobachten zu können. Ich mag es, meinen eigenen Notgroschen zu haben, zumal ich nur zu gut weiß, dass meinem Mann jederzeit etwas passieren kann. Falls die Dinge aus irgendeinem Grund in den Süden gehen sollten, hätte ich zumindest für ein oder zwei Jahre genug, um über die Runden zu kommen.

Ich denke, ein Grund für mein Zögern, meinen Mann mein Geld anlegen zu lassen, liegt zum Teil im finanziellen Missbrauch durch meine Mutter, und ich wäre auch am Boden zerstört, wenn etwas passiert, weil es von meinem Vater kommt. Ich vertraue meinem Mann voll und ganz, aber ich stoße immer wieder an eine Wand, wenn ich versuche zu entscheiden, was ich mit diesem Geld anfangen soll. Soll ich es auf demselben Konto belassen, es meinem Mann überlassen oder etwas ganz anderes tun?

-Blutgeld

Liebes Blutgeld,

Es tut mir leid, dass Ihr Vater gestorben ist, als Sie noch so jung waren. Meine Mutter starb im ersten Jahr an der High School, und ich hatte eine Familie, die mich für meine Sozialversicherungsschecks benutzte. Es nervt. Aber bitte wissen Sie, dass Ihre Mutter Sie finanziell abgeschnitten hat und nicht umgekehrt.

Aufgrund der Geschichte des finanziellen Missbrauchs, den Sie in Ihrer Vergangenheit erlitten haben, ist es völlig gerechtfertigt und verständlich, dass Sie Ihren Notgroschen von Ihrem Ehemann fernhalten wollen. Alle Frauen sollten ihr eigenes Geld beiseite legen, egal ob sie glücklich verheiratet sind, den Ausgang im Auge haben oder eine Katzendame von einer. Eine Ehe ist nicht gleichbedeutend mit finanzieller Sicherheit, insbesondere für eine Frau. Alles kann passieren, und Sie möchten Ihr eigenes Geld haben, das leicht zugänglich ist.

Ich denke, du solltest einen einstellen zertifizierter Finanzplaner um Ihnen zu helfen, Ihr Erbe zu übergehen und eine Anlagestrategie zu entwickeln, mit der Sie sich wohl fühlen. CFPs können entweder sein kostenpflichtig, wo Ihnen eine Pauschalgebühr für die Nutzung ihrer Dienste in Rechnung gestellt wird oder sie Provisionen aus Finanzprodukten verdienen können, die sie für Sie verkaufen oder verwalten. ich würde mit a anfangen CFP der regelmäßig Ihr Portfolio verwaltet und mit Ihnen zusammen eine Finanzstrategie entwickelt, mit der Sie sich wohl fühlen. (Sie können auch Freunde fragen oder lokale Social-Media-Foren nach Empfehlungen für vertrauenswürdige CFPs durchsuchen.) Ich freue mich auf Sie und Ihre neue Investitionsreise!

Lieber Pay-Dreck,

Seit meinem Abschluss an der Graduiertenschule im Jahr 2011 arbeite ich Vollzeit für dieselbe gemeinnützige Organisation und bezahle ständig meine Bundesstudiendarlehensrechnungen (bis zur COVID-Befristung, die letztes Jahr begann). Ich habe jeden Monat das Minimum bezahlt, was die Zinsen kaum kratzt. Ich hoffe, dass meine Kredite im Rahmen der Programm zur Vergebung von Darlehen im öffentlichen Dienst innerhalb des nächsten Jahres.

Meine Darlehen belaufen sich auf 92.000 US-Dollar – fast 20.000 US-Dollar mehr als bei meinem Abschluss. Und ich habe gerade erfahren, dass meine Kredite auf einen neuen Kreditnehmer übertragen werden. Das letzte Mal, als das passierte, „verlor“ ich etwa ein Jahr an qualifizierenden Zahlungen, was mich um ein weiteres Jahr zurückwarf und mir große Angst machte. Ich möchte nicht, dass dies noch einmal passiert; Ehrlich gesagt möchte ich nicht mehr bezahlen, als ich bereits habe! Es war ein großes Gewicht um meinen Hals, das mich direkt daran hinderte, Geld zu sparen, Eigentum zu besitzen, eine Familie zu gründen oder aus dem gemeinnützigen Sektor auszusteigen, aus Angst, die Kreditvergabe zu verlieren. (Ja, ich bedaure, zu glauben, dass ich diesen Abschluss brauchte – eine große Zeit.) Wenn mir die Kreditvergebung nicht gelingt, sehe ich keinen Ausweg aus diesem Loch. Ich würde gerne einen vertrauenswürdigen Beratungsdienst für Studienkredite finden, der mir dabei hilft, und ich sehe Unternehmen, die Hilfe anbieten, aber ich bin mir nicht sicher, welchen ich vertrauen soll. Ich werde jeden Rat, den Sie für mich haben, aufsaugen.

—Gefangen in einer bodenlosen Grube

Liebe Gefangene,

Das Problem mit dem PSLF-Programm ist, dass es eines Tages kann es nicht mehr geben. Es gibt Millionen andere, die hoffen, dass das Programm noch läuft, wenn ihre Kredite vergeben werden. Sie sind also nicht allein mit Ihrer Angst, mit diesen Schulden für immer hier festzusitzen.

  1. Ich habe ein Land mit einer beunruhigenden Geschichte geerbt

  2. Mein Partner und ich führen einen Finanzkrieg wegen Eistees

  3. Eine Diamantkette zerreißt meine Familie

  4. Mein Onkel hat eines der Strandhäuser meiner Familie beschlagnahmt

Wenn Ihre Kredite an einen neuen Dienstleister übertragen wurden, sollte dies in der genau dokumentiert worden sein Nationales Datensystem für Studienkredite. Die Informationen liegen in der Regel innerhalb von zwei Wochen nach der Kreditübertragung vor, sodass Ihre Zahlungen zum Zeitpunkt der Benachrichtigung für das PSLF-Programm korrekt dokumentiert sein sollten. Gab es eine Lücke in den Unterlagen, die an das Bildungsministerium geschickt wurden? Ich erwähne dies, denn wenn es ein Fehler auf der Seite des Verwalters war und nicht bei Ihnen, könnten Sie diese Zahlungen möglicherweise auf den Betrag anrechnen lassen, den Sie für die Vergebung benötigen. Es ist Ihre Zeit wert Telefon abheben und versuche ein paar Antworten zu bekommen.

Wenn das nicht hilft, empfehle ich einen Termin mit dem Nationale Stiftung für Kreditberatung. Es ist die größte gemeinnützige Beratungsstelle in den Vereinigten Staaten und hilft bei Kreditproblemen sowie bei Studienkrediten. Ich möchte Sie um Rat zum PSLF-Programm, zu den fehlenden Zahlungen und zum Umgang mit den Studentendarlehensschulden bitten, bevor Sie versuchen, sich bei einem privaten Kreditgeber oder anderen Optionen zu refinanzieren, die in Ihren Ziel-Google-Ergebnissen angezeigt werden könnten. NFCC kann möglicherweise auch auf andere Programme oder Ressourcen verweisen, die Ihnen helfen können. Und merke dir: Du bist nicht allein.

Cindy Crawford showcases her type as she enjoys dinner in Malibu with husband Rande Gerber

|

You have been married for over 20 years.

And Cindy Crawford showed off her style skills in a zebra print dress as she went to dinner at Nobu in Malibu. California With my husband Rande Gerber (59 years old) on Thursday.

The 55-year-old catwalk superstar stood out from the crowd in a chic shirt dress when he saw the hotspot enter.

Beloved: Cindy Crawford, 55, qualified for her style in a zebra print dress when she and husband Rande Gerber, 59, went out for dinner Thursday at Knob in Malibu, California. Indicate

Cindy had a leather jacket in one hand, so she wore a black belt with a tight waist to emphasize her sleek build.

She enhanced her tall stature with open-toe mules and elegantly adorned them with a Gucci shoulder bag.

Cindy styled her signature chocolate skirt in a relaxing wave and opted for a light makeup slick.

Rande, on the other hand, cut his laid-back look into a gray T-shirt and jeans, hunched his shoulders with a black hoodie and finished off his casual look with a black leather sweatshirt.

Wonderful: Catwalk superstars stood out from the crowd in chic shirt dresses when they saw them enter the hotspot

The duo have taken safety precautions to protect themselves from the new coronavirus by wearing a face mask.

Cindy has been a popular name since the 1980s and is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading supermodels.

From 1991 to 1995 she had a famous marriage to Hollywood star Richard Gere.

After her divorce, she married the entrepreneur Rande, who turned to a male model in 1998.

The couple are parents to their son Presley, 22, and daughter Kaia, 19, who are both modeled after famous parents.

Family: Cindy is married to Rande, who has developed from a former male model to a businessman since 1998. They are parents to daughter Kaia (19 years old) and son Presley (22 years old).

Kaia, who has dominated the fashion world since her catwalk debut at the age of 16, is now challenging her acting.

After a small role in 2016 and 2017, she booked her biggest role to date in the Ryan Murphy Anthology Series American Horror Story.

The show is a spin-off of the American horror story of the same name, and teens starred in the second of two art episodes released last week.

She will also play a role in the next new AHS season entitled Double Feature.

Expensive Annie: Our good friend is deep in debt, requested us for cash and hasn’t instructed her husband. What ought to we do?

Dear Annie: My wife and I are in a pickle. We are friends with another couple, “Josh” and “Vanessa”. Vanessa happens to be a teacher at our children’s school. One day I picked up my offspring and started chatting with them. I noticed that she was sad and asked her about it. Then the locks opened.

She started telling me about how she ran up credit card debt and she said Josh didn’t know about it. Josh is under a lot of stress and she doesn’t want to tell him. I comforted her and asked how much, thinking maybe a few hundred dollars.

You: “17.”

Me: “A thousand?”

You: (nods slowly)

I lied and told her it was okay. I also told her to tell Josh. She agreed and said she plans to do it next month after he hits a deadline on the job. Then she asked if my wife and I would loan her $ 500 for the time being so that she could pay the minimum. I told her we would talk about it.

So now we have two questions. Shall we give her the money first? Second, should we ever tell Josh sometime? If we told him, Vanessa would hate us. But otherwise Josh would hate us after he finally found out. What would you do? – couple in a riddle

Dear couple: put this one off.

Don’t give Vanessa the money. This would only enable her to maintain her spending addiction.

Don’t talk to Josh. Let Vanessa be the one to tell him. She’ll have to do it soon anyway if you don’t loan her the credit card minimum.

I know you want to help, but defend yourself. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions and has an expressway for people who get right in the middle of their friends’ relationship problems.

Dear Annie, backseat drivers are an absolute nuisance to me. I’ve been driving a car for 20 years and have never had an accident except once when my side mirror hit a mailbox and I never had a ticket except once in New York State.

I am not an aggressive driver. I keep people in my lane. I’m not trying to drive fast, but I’m busy (and often late) trying to keep up with the other cars around me.

But the way some friends react when they’re in my car, you might think I’m Danica Patrick. And my husband is the worst. He keeps making comments: “Stop dragging.” “Slow down.” “You’re driving really fast.” And when he’s not voicing his thoughts, I can see him preparing for the impact by grabbing the handle over the car door.

The constant feedback from people about my driving gets on my nerves. How can I give them the confidence to enjoy the ride when I’m behind the wheel? — Makes me mad

Dear Car Driving: Well you can start by being a better driver because I doubt anyone who drives your car is overreacting. They’re sending your passengers into survival mode and they’ll burst out in self-defense and not pick on you.

Consider signing up for a defensive adult driving lesson. Many insurance companies even offer discounts for attending such courses.

At the very least, I suggest that you reconsider the basics of Driver ED: adjust your mirrors (while the car is still parked) to avoid blind spots; Leave a length of car in front of you for every 10 mph, etc. And get out early so you are not in such a rush to get seats.

The backseat drivers like to hand over their keys, so to speak, when they see that you can get them to safety.

My husband makes me present receipts for every part I purchase: cash recommendation.

Pay Dirt is Slate’s new money advice column. Have a question? Send it to Athena and Elizabeth here. (It’s anonymous!)

Dear Pay Dirt,

My partner grew up poor, while I grew up more middle-class. He has always controlled all our finances, and spends hours monthly on budgeting and checking bills, credit cards, etc. I’ve never known anybody who obsesses like this. All income, including gifts, goes to the joint account, and I have to keep receipts for everything I buy, down to a coffee, so he can record and check it. We have a fairly big (but manageable) mortgage, and our child has added many more costs to our lives, but otherwise we’re OK.

I was very young when we got together, and I went along because I didn’t know anything else. Recently, I’ve started to hate it. I hate that he checks anything I buy. I hate that he says it has to be this way because there’s nothing extra. I understand the way his insecure upbringing shaped him, but anytime I ask about doing things differently, I end up feeling scolded, unreasonable, and frivolous. I can’t see a solution. Maybe you can?

—In-House Class War

Dear In-House Class War,

It sounds like you are very patient with your husband and very understanding of his background and how it might reflect through his ideas on money management. However, I’m worried that he may be trying to control you through financial abuse, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt and suggest a few possible approaches.

First, you should have a separate checking account in your name only. You’d contribute your agreed-upon portion into the joint account, and whatever’s in this account would be yours to spend, without scrutiny. This would also help you in case funds are frozen in the joint account. Second, if he hasn’t, he needs to share all the joint account information with you. You need to know where your money is going just as much as he does. Things happen, and your spouse could be left unable to handle your family’s affairs. The last thing you need to worry about is how to log in to pay a bill on time.

Ask if he would consider learning more about finances with you as a couple. There are some great resources out there for learning about money as a couple—the Couple Money podcast is focused on those starting to manage money together for the first time, and David Bach’s Smart Couples Finish Rich offers tools and strategies for managing money as a team.

If you’re still not seeing eye to eye, your requests for changes are met with more scolding or anger, and you want to keep pushing forward, you might try couple’s counseling. It may take an outside voice (although it shouldn’t) to help him realize he has some unhealthy behaviors about money and treating you like an equal. If you fear there is financial abuse, the National Network to End Domestic Violence has a list of signs to look for and next steps with resources. If you’re unable to access the link on a safe computer, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 and/or talk to a trusted friend or relative about helping you and your child plan a safe exit. You deserve not to feel scolded or unreasonable for spending your own money.

Dear Pay Dirt,

A relative of my spouse’s died very unexpectedly several months ago. They lived far apart, but I would say they had a pretty close relationship. The estate as a whole is a complicated situation, which my mother-in-law and her sibling are primarily handling. Recently, we learned that my spouse appears to be the sole beneficiary of a life insurance policy that’s going to pay out a life-changing amount of money. Like, pay for grad school levels of life-changing. But the whole family is puzzled as to why my spouse is the only beneficiary and the cousins were left out.

It seems like it must have been a deliberate choice, but there wasn’t any bad blood between this relative and the other family members, and they left no explanation for the situation.

There are definitely some hurt feelings, and at least one person has made comments about how they “certainly hope” that my spouse will “do the right thing,” heavily implying that they should share the money. Some cousins are more than financially secure, while others have much less.

Should we volunteer to share the money, or follow the (presumed) wishes of the deceased and keep it all? However much we decide to keep, how can we most wisely invest this windfall? (We likely wouldn’t need to pay for anything big, like tuition, until fall of next year.) I feel that it’s right to share some of the money with a few family members who really need it the most—but is that going against the deceased’s wishes? Or am I telling myself that because I kinda wish we could keep it all?

—This Feels Awkward

Dear Awkward,

It sounds like your spouse lost a relative whom they shared a unique and close bond with, especially if they were left with their own inheritance that was separate from the rest of the family. The other relatives may be puzzled and hurt by this, but that is not your spouse’s fault, nor is it their concern. It was deliberate for a reason only known to the relative, and now it’s a mystery no one can solve!

Whether you want to share it with family or keep it all is entirely up to you—there’s no right or wrong decision here. You say you feel it’s right to share, but you need to make sure that’s what your spouse wants, too, especially since they are the recipient of this financial gift. Talk with your spouse and make sure you are on the same page about what to do with the money. If you do decide to share, you can gift an amount to all cousins so that it is “fair,” or you can just give a financial gift to a select few. Make sure time has passed and feelings have died down, and try to keep the conversation civil and focused—though, in this situation, someone is bound to be hurt, regardless of outcome.

Once you receive your inheritance check, it needs to go into an investment account that will help you grow your money over a short period of time. A money market account has interest rates that are better than a high-yield savings account, and this investment vehicle still allows you to access cash so you can make payments on your grad school tuition without a lot of hassle. If you decide to keep it with an eye on the longer term, I suggest making an appointment with a fee-only financial adviser.

Money advice from Athena and Elizabeth, delivered weekly.

Dear Pay Dirt,

I finished graduate school last year with about $50,000 in student loan debt, including the loans from my undergraduate degree. My loans were put on-hold while I was in grad school, and then again during the pandemic, so I haven’t made any payments since 2018. I’ve been living at home, working full-time, and saving money since graduating college six years ago, so I’ve been able to save over $60,000—enough to pay off my loans in one lump sum!

Here’s the problem: My family thinks this is a bad idea and that I should pay it off in $300 payments every month instead of emptying my savings all at once. I understand their concerns. I plan on moving out soon, so it would be nice to have this money just in case. I make about $40,000 a year and live a in a pretty expensive city. But I also feel like the money isn’t really mine—it belongs to the Department of Education. I’m proud of myself for saving this money, and I think it would be a huge relief to be completely debt-free after making one big payment. Is that irresponsible? Is it better to pay it off monthly over the course of several years? I’ve been waiting to see whether the new administration would forgive a big chunk of my debt, but this seems unlikely now. What should I do?

—Torn Over My Loans

Dear Torn Over My Loans,

Kuddos to being able to save $60,000! That is such a huge accomplishment, so pat yourself on the back.

I think you should pay your student loans off in full. Explain to your family that paying off your student loans early will mean substantially less interest, saving you thousands of dollars over the course of your loan. (A simple loan calculator can help you estimate just how much you’d save in interest, depending on your interest rate and loan term.) It’s common for people to make the minimum payment on their loans and years later be worse off than where they had originally started. Some people might argue that paying off your loans early could affect your credit score, but unless you’re imminently planning to buy a house, this shouldn’t be an issue.

The bonus here, too, is that even if you pay your loans off in full, you still have an emergency fund of $10,000. If you aren’t in a hurry to move out, ask your family if you could stay longer and build that number until you’ve saved six months of expenses, plus whatever cash you’ll need to move. If you don’t know what your expenses will be, check out Zillow for an idea of what rentals go for in your area in your area. This will keep an unexpected expense from derailing your financial journey and going back into debt. And in a high cost-of-living situation on a $40,000 salary, you’ll want to have a healthy cushion, since rent will eat up a lot of your paycheck.

The other option is to split the difference. Find out what your minimum monthly loan payment is, then figure out how much extra you’d want to pay every month—maybe you double it, or $300 extra, or whatever feels right. Then put the rest—including your emergency-fund money—in a high-yield savings account. This will allow you to pay extra toward the principal on but still collect interest on the original amount you saved and have a healthy emergency fund. But even though there’s no dollar amount attached, being debt-free can feel like it’s worth a fortune.

Dear Pay Dirt,

I’m 22, and I’ve been working at my first job for about a year now. I was hoping to make about $50,000 coming out of college (I majored in STEM), and I’m making $75,000. I come from a lower-middle-class background, and I’ve never had this kind of money before. I’ve gone from being the one in the friend group with the least disposable income, since I put myself through college, to the most. But I’m scared of the rug being pulled out from under me and suddenly having nothing. Currently, I have about $25,000 just chilling in my savings account, although about half of that is going to go into my student loans before my deferment period ends.

How do I get over my discomfort with the amount of money I suddenly have? Is it still fair to split things like meals and experiences evenly when I know I have more money? How do I stop feeling guilty every time I spend money on something like takeout when I know I could have used that money better? What do I do with everything I have saved? For context, I also have a diagnosed anxiety disorder that I’m sure isn’t helping.

—Started From the Bottom, Now We’re Here

Dear Now We’re Here,

In the words of your Drake reference, “We just want the credit where it’s due.” You, my friend, deserve all the credit. You busted your ass in college, you went into a lucrative field, and now you’re making it rain in your bank account. Baller!

It sounds like you have money set aside for an emergency fund, which is a great first step. Most experts suggest you keep at least three to six months of expenses, so keep squirreling away cash when you can—but you don’t need to live like a monk until you hit that number. You want your money to make money, so make sure you have it in a high-yield savings account to earn interest. I would also talk to a fee-only financial planner to get started with investing for your future as well. You sound like you’re in a great place to start a Roth!

  3. My Son’s Wife Thinks We’re Still Paying for Her Kids’ Fancy School After She Divorces Him

  4. I Think My Superrich Grandpa Is Trying to Use Me in a Weird Scheme Against My Brother

Now, onto your money script. A money script is something we tell ourselves that shapes our beliefs about our finances. It can be a happy, healthy one, or a bad one. Yours sounds like it’s robbing you from the joy you should be experiencing, so we need to work on that. I’d recommend reading Leisa Peterson’s The Mindful Millionaire, which focuses on scarcity mindsets and can help you rewrite your money script into a more positive one.

As for paying more because you make more, you don’t have to. I give you permission to treat people here and there if you would like to, but don’t spend a lot doing that or make it a habit. The same goes for takeout—treat yourself to a meal out here and there, but as long as you don’t do it every night and work on not feeling guilty about it, you’ll be fine. If you’re working with a therapist for your anxiety, it might be good to discuss your money anxiety with them, too. You started from the bottom, but you don’t gotta stay there.

More Advice From Slate

I am the mother of twin 5-month-old boys. Both of my parents died recently, while my husband’s parents are both still alive. Now that his parents are the only grandparents, he and they have decided that it’s a given they’ll be present at every holiday. This is beginning to slowly shatter me. Not only do I enjoy myself a lot less when they’re around (really, isn’t that the truth for all of us with our in-laws?), but I also feel (perhaps unreasonably) like it’s a betrayal to my own dead parents to be giving my in-laws every holiday when my own parents never got any. My mother was a huge Christmas person, and she never got a Christmas with grandchildren. It’s going to be damn hard for me to be joyous and carefree with my in-laws as I also mourn my own mother at Christmastime. Add this to Thanksgiving, birthdays, Easter, Halloween, etc., and you can see how I’ve come to dread holidays. I’d love to have some of the holidays be just our own little family, without the grandparents, but my husband thinks this is cruel and illogical. Is it wrong to request the grandparents sit a few holidays out?

Alicia Keys: I have been giving my husband ‘house’ amid lockdown | Leisure

Alicia Keys and her husband learned to give each other space while isolating themselves at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 40-year-old singer and Swizz Beatz spent more time together than ever before during the global health crisis, but they also tried to spend some time apart so they wouldn’t get tired of each other.

Alicia said, “We spend so much of our life traveling. Obviously, with [the pandemic]We see each other literally every day. We looked at each other the other day and said, “So that’s really how it is to be married.” It was really funny. But, you know what? We are really good.

“I think one of the things we’re really good at is giving each other the space we need. It’s not a difficult thing for us. And even if we only know intuitively what the others need, that is very fluid for us. We will always check in and always make sure we are good. “

The hitmaker “If I don’t have you”, who has sons Egypt (10) and Genesis (6) with Swizz, also stated that having a room of your own and spending time with her family was a “good balance” spend the couple.

She added: “It’s a nice balance. You create and are in your space and then the togetherness. It was wonderful. Much more family dinners. I really like to do Sundays when we are all together and can do it. ” Things that are not digitally connected. So we play a lot of board games, watch films together, do bike tours and the like.

“And he’s definitely a real joke and prankster. He always makes us laugh. “

And Alicia said self-care was an important part of her family’s routine.

Speaking to People magazine, she said, “We talk a lot about breathing, especially my youngest one. It takes a lot of breathing. We talk about calming your breath and listening to what your body needs when you are tired or when you are “You’re frustrated. Or when you feel like you need more time alone, or when you need more time with mom to really try to verbalize it so we can work it through.”

Prince Philip, husband of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, dies at 99

LONDON —  The House of Windsor lost its patriarch.

Prince Philip, the Greece-born royal who as the husband of Queen Elizabeth II was the longest-serving consort to a British sovereign, died Friday. He was 99.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” the royal family announced. “Further announcements will be made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”   

Flags were lowered to half-staff.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s death came 12 days before Queen Elizabeth’s 95th birthday on April 21, two months before what would have been his 100th birthday on June 10 and on the 16th anniversary of the marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla. Under a long-standing plan known as “Operation Forth Bridge,” his death ushers in a period of national mourning.

The royal family webpage was replaced with a tribute page in black in memory of the prince, who was married to Elizabeth for nearly 74 years.

“The official website of the Royal Family is temporarily unavailable while appropriate changes are made,” the royal.uk site said.

The House of Commons tweeted that it will sit at 2:30 p.m. on Monday to pay tribute to the duke.

Philip had insisted that he did not want the “fuss” of a state funeral at Westminster Hall, according to The Times of London. The Royal College of Arms announced that Philip’s body will lie at rest in Windsor Castle ahead of the funeral in St George’s Chapel, in line with custom and his wishes. It said there will be no state funeral and no lying in state. It also said the date of the funeral will be announced.

“The funeral arrangements have been revised in view of the prevailing circumstances arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and it is regretfully requested that members of the public do not attempt to attend or participate in any of the events that make up the funeral,” it added in a statement.

Buckingham Palace added: “Those wishing to express their condolences are asked to do so in the safest way possible, and not to gather at Royal Residences.” The family also asked the public to make donations to a charity instead of leaving floral tributes.

 Philip, whom the queen referred to as “my constant strength,” was hospitalized in February after “feeling unwell,” and was treated for an infection and a preexisting heart condition, Buckingham Palace said. He was released a month later after undergoing a heart procedure.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement that “it was with great sadness” he had been informed of Philip’s death, reflecting on the duke’s “extraordinary life and work” and offering his condolences to the queen.

“Like the expert carriage driver that he was he helped to steer the royal family and the monarchy so that it remains an institution indisputably vital to the balance and happiness of our national life,” Johnson said. “We mourn today with Her Majesty The Queen, we offer our condolences to her and to all her family, and we give thanks, as a nation and a Kingdom, for the extraordinary life and work of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.”

Tributes also came pouring in from world leaders including U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“On behalf of all the people of the United States, we send our deepest condolences to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the entire Royal Family, and all the people of the United Kingdom,” Biden said in a statement. “Jill and I are keeping the Queen and to Prince Philip’s children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in our hearts during this time.”

Putin wished the queen “courage and spiritual fortitude in the face of a heavy and irreparable loss.” 

The duke, who popularized the sobriquet “The Firm” for Windsor family business, ended his official duties in the fall of 2017. Months earlier, in June, he was hospitalized for an infection and missed the Queen’s Speech opening the newly elected Parliament that month.

Two days after missing Easter 2018 services at St. George’s Chapel, he was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital for previously scheduled hip replacement surgery, the palace said. That 10-day hospitalization came weeks before the birth of Prince William and Kate‘s third child, Prince Louis Arthur, and the marriage of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle on May 19, 2018, at St. George’s.

In January 2019, Philip was uninjured after he was involved in a collision while driving a Land Rover — at age 97 — near the queen’s Sandringham estate. The vehicle overturned, according to witnesses, and two women were treated for injuries. Weeks later, he decided to turn in his driver’s license.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Philip and Elizabeth had been staying at Windsor Castle, west of London.

The Duke of Edinburgh supported his wife throughout an unprecedented time of social, economic, technological, political change and family crises.

Fourteen prime ministers held office while Philip was British consort — companion to the sovereign — from Winston Churchill in 1952 through Johnson.

Both the duke and the queen, the world’s longest-reigning monarch, witnessed the transformation of a once-global British Empire into a Commonwealth of 52 independent member states, a free association headed by the queen.

Philip’s public statements had been few and far between in recent years and, even rarer were his direct dealings with the media. Previously, the duke was renowned for speaking his mind at public engagements, many times with cringe-worthy remarks that bent the bounds of humor.

During the 1981 recession, for example, he said: “Everybody was saying we must have more leisure. Now they are complaining they are unemployed.”

“Aren’t most of you descended from pirates?” Philip asked a wealthy resident of the Cayman Islands in 1994.

“You’re too fat to be an astronaut,” he told a 13-year-old boy in 2001.

When meeting in 2012 with a mayor who used a mobility scooter, Philip asked him: “Have you run over anybody?”

Early life

Philip was born June 10, 1921, on the Greek island of Corfu as the youngest child and only son of Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark and Princess Alice of Battenberg. Andrew, whose father, King George I of Greece, was assassinated in 1913, was a commander in the Greek army during the 1919-1922 war with Turkey. With Greece’s defeat, Andrew and the family were exiled in 1922, settling in France.

Philip’s maternal grandfather, Prince Louis of Battenberg, renounced his German titles, adopted the surname Mountbatten, an Anglicized version of the German Battenberg, and became a British citizen.

At age 7 in 1928, Philip was sent to school in England. He lived with his maternal grandmother, Victoria Mountbatten, and his uncle George Mountbatten.

Philip’s four sisters married German aristocrats, and three of them — Sophie, Cecilie and Margarita — joined the Nazi party. To be sure, one of his brothers-in-law was among those implicated in the 1944 plot to kill Adolf Hitler.

In an interview with historian Jonathan Petropoulos published in his 2006 book “Royals and the Reich,” Philip stressed that he was never “conscious of anybody in the family actually expressing anti-Semitic views,” but he acknowledged there were “inhibitions about the Jews” and “jealousy of their success.”

As a teenager, Philip joined the Royal Navy and went on to serve in World War II, including participating in the battles of Cape Matapan and Crete and the invasion of Sicily. He was in Tokyo Bay for the Japanese surrender on Sept. 2, 1945, and would later receive the Greek War Cross of Valor for his services in the Navy.

Royal matrimony

In 1947, the 26-year-old Philip married his third cousin, Princess Elizabeth, 21, and in doing so, renounced his Greek title to become a naturalized British subject. He was later made Duke of Edinburgh by Elizabeth’s father, King George VI.

The royal matrimony at that time was not without controversy since Philip was not a native son. The Queen Mother reportedly referred to him as “the Hun.” Nevertheless, the couple married in Westminster Abbey and received more than 2,500 wedding gifts from around the world. One year later, son and heir to the throne Charles was born, followed by Anne, Andrew and Edward.

Philip’s naval career, which had seen the newly married couple stationed in Malta for a short period, subsequently ended when George VI died Feb. 6, 1952, and Princess Elizabeth became queen.

The duke assumed his new role as consort, accompanying Her Majesty around the world on domestic trips, state visits and Commonwealth tours.

Elizabeth was formally crowned queen in 1953 in the first live television coronation to be broadcast globally. Shortly thereafter, Philip and Elizabeth embarked upon a seven-month international tour, visiting 13 countries and logging over 40,000 miles.

‘Nobody’s ever forgotten meeting him’

Alongside his royal commitments, the duke became a qualified pilot and regularly played polo until his 50th birthday. Philip achieved many flying qualifications that would see him receive his Royal Air Force wings in 1953, helicopter wings two years later and private pilot’s license in 1959.

In an official capacity, Philip traveled to more than 140 countries.

“The great thing about my father is that nobody’s ever forgotten meeting him, so they’ve all got their stories,” Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, said during an engagement at Windsor Castle in May 2017.

“Wherever he’s been, wherever in the world — people remember him. You can’t really get a better accolade than that,” he added.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s reign also had to endure times of crises, including the British monarch being shot at with blanks in 1981. Two years earlier, the queen’s art advisor, Anthony Blunt, was revealed to be a Communist spy, and Philip’s uncle, Louis “Dickie” Lord Mountbatten, was killed by an Irish Republican Army bomb.

In 1992, the marriages of three of their children collapsed. Andrew and Anne divorced from their spouses and Charles and Diana began a separation that ended in divorce four years later. Also in 1992, fire gutted Windsor Castle, one of the couple’s official residences. The queen described this 12-month period as an “annus horribilis.”

During Charles and Diana’s troubles, Philip reportedly counseled the couple to reconcile, but to no avail. A year after the 1996 divorce, Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed were killed in a Paris car crash as photographers were chasing their limousine. Before the funeral, Philip successfully encouraged his 15-year-old grandson, William, to walk behind Diana’s casket. Sixty years earlier, the then-16-year-old Philip marched behind the casket of his sister Cecilie after she was killed in a plane crash.

“If you don’t walk, I think you’ll regret it later,” Philip told William, according to British media accounts. “If I walk, will you walk with me?”

Fayed’s father claimed that Philip had ordered the couple executed, but in 2008, a London coroner rejected Mohamed al Fayed’s conspiracy allegations, ruling there was no such evidence. The jury eventually decided that the crash resulted from grossly negligent driving by the couple’s chauffeur and the pursuit of their limousine by paparazzi.

In the decades following his marriage to the queen, the Duke of Edinburgh had taken up more than 22,000 solo engagements, 637 overseas visits, delivered an estimated 5,493 speeches and worked as a patron to almost 800 organizations, according to the royal website.

One of his most successful associations has arguably been the creation of the Duke of Edinburgh Award, a youth self-improvement program that has been running for 65 years.

In May 2017, the palace announced that the then-95-year-old prince would permanently discontinue his royal duties as of the fall. Philip and his wife had gradually passed on some of their respective workload in recent years. Their son and heir, Prince Charles, as well as grandsons, Princes William and Harry and other family members assumed more collective responsibility until Andrew was effectively stripped of his royal duties in 2019 because of his association with the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and Harry stepped back as a senior royal in 2020.

The queen said in tribute to her husband on their golden wedding anniversary on Nov. 20, 1997, “Quite simply, (he has) been my strength and stay all these years, and I and his whole family, in this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim or we shall ever know.”

The couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in November 2017. During their private celebration at Windsor Castle, Elizabeth presented him with the Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order for “services to the sovereign.”

Survivors include his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, and their children: Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex. The queen and Philip also had eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, including Augustus Philip Hawke Brooksbank, who was born Feb. 9, 2021, to Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and is is named in part to honor the Duke of Edinburgh.

“This is obviously a very sad day for Her Majesty, the Royal Family and the whole country,” Sir Lindsay Hoyle, speaker of the House of Commons, said in a statement. “The Duke of Edinburgh has given his unwavering support to The Queen, both as a husband and as a consort. Described by Her Majesty as ‘my constant strength’, he served this country too, first with distinction during the Second World War and selflessly throughout eight decades during peacetime. …

“He will be remembered for his loyal devotion to service and his leadership of hundreds of ideals and causes close to his heart. Most notably, of course, is the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award which helps millions of young people around the world to achieve their full potential as team members and future leaders in their chosen fields.”

By JILL LAWLESS and DANICA KIRKA Associated Press

LONDON (AP) – Britain’s 99-year-old Prince Philip was admitted to a London hospital after feeling unwell, Buckingham Palace said on Wednesday.

The palace said Queen Elizabeth II’s husband was admitted to the private King Edward VII Hospital on Tuesday evening.

It called the recording “a precautionary measure” taken on the advice of Philip’s doctor. The palace said it is expected to stay “watch and rest” for a few days.

His illness is not linked to COVID-19. The Queen and Philip were vaccinated against the coronavirus in early January.

Philip, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, retired from public service in 2017 and rarely appears in public.

During England’s current coronavirus lockdown, he was with the Queen at Windsor Castle, west of London.

Philip married then Princess Elizabeth in 1947 and is the longest-serving royal consort in British history. He and the queen have four children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Philip, a former naval officer and avid polo player, was healthy well into old age but had a number of health problems in recent years.

In 2011, he was rushed to hospital by helicopter for chest pain and treated for a blocked coronary artery. He spent two nights at King Edward VII Hospital in 2017 and was hospitalized for 10 days in 2018 for a hip replacement.

Dolly Parton’s husband would not need fame | Leisure

Dolly Parton’s husband believes he would “never get a minute of peace” if he was in the spotlight.

The ‘Jolene’ hitmaker has been married to Carl Thomas Dean since 1966, but she insists that he enjoys being private and not interested in being part of Dolly’s fame and success.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she shared their relationship: “A lot of people thought that [he is imaginary] over the years because he doesn’t want to be in the spotlight at all. It’s just not who he is. He’s like a calm, reserved person and he thought if he ever got out there he’d never get a minute of peace and he’s right about that.

“He said, ‘I didn’t choose this world, I chose you, and you chose this world. But we can keep our lives apart and together.’ And we do and we have. “

Meanwhile, Dolly previously insisted that she had no children because “God didn’t mean” she should have children, but said that she could fully focus on her career with “freedom”.

She said, “I’ve made sacrifices, but I think I know what to do. But you have to make the sacrifice. Since I had no children and my husband was pretty independent, I had freedom. I think a big one Part of my overall success is the fact that I was able to work freely … I didn’t have children because I believe that God didn’t want me to have children so that all the children could be mine. I could do things like that [book gifting program] Imagination library. If I hadn’t had the freedom to work, I wouldn’t have done everything I did and I wouldn’t be able to do everything I do. “
