"I work in high tech and it is the same here - at least at the first 2-3 levels in the organization - but when we have to go to customers more often the dress goes up too. I said screw it and wear a sport jacket everyday. A suit is too much I agree…"

"Karen has me right: I absolutely was not telling him to leave his wife! No! She needs him, he's committed to her, and he loves her! I was honoring him for keeping going while feeling "like a single parent of two daughters and a wife.""

"I feel for you too. My wife has been blue but not all the way to depressed. *I* have been depressed (before marriage). I know how I got out of it; and how I survived it. Meanwhile, maybe single parent of everyone is the way to go, as an act of love."

I would like to know how many of you are married to a woman who has been diagnosed with depression.  My wife has been living with it for 8 years and is really having a hard time with it.  I would like to know from those of you what you do to cope with it and to help the situation out.  I am really struggling not getting frustraited with her, knowing full well that she can't help it.  I feel like a single parent of two daughters and a wife.  Please let me know your secrets. Thanks.See More

20 year old looking for advice from you "white collar" gents.....is the money worth it?

This has always been the area I've struggled with most in my life....finding out what to do for a career. I've never had a passion for one specific thing. There isn't one job that seems to "stick out" over the others. I'm kind of in every direction when it comes to choosing careers. One day I'll think welder, the next it's logistics, the next it's cyber security. At 20 years old this feeling of uncertainty is not where I want to be, so I'm really trying to figure out not just what I want to do…See More
