@Ange – Ew! That’s so gross! But a few years ago there was a different article that had polled online dating users and found that women’s desirability peaks at 18. Which, again, ew. I know that’s not all about looks, but I think I look better in my 30s than I did in my teens and most of my 20s.

Also re: threatened men, an ex I dated while I was in school, we went to the same college and grad school, same programs. In grad school, the insecurity/jealousy (or whatever it was) started coming out when I started slightly outperforming him in most areas. At one point I got an academic award and he told me that getting the award didn’t make me smart. I haven’t seen or spoken to him in like 10 years at this point, but I heard from mutual connections that he married a therapist and for some reason that made me LOL. Like yeah, he did need one of those.

I’d be on-board with a pre-nup. One of my aunts had a divorce so contentious that it took like five or six years to finalize. By the time they were done fighting about everything, there was no money left. I also have a friend whose now-ex husband didn’t want her to have a dime (it was his money, he said, not theirs) and got pretty nasty during their divorce. It’s rational minds deciding the rules to play by if things don’t work out. I’d rather pick my rules than default to the state’s.

Speaking of division of labor, has anyone else watched the documentary Fair Play? I follow some accounts that talk a lot about household equity on TikTok and knew it was a book from that, but didn’t realize it was a documentary as well. We watched it a month or so ago.
