How to deal with a friend who is basically using his girlfriend for a place to live?

A friend of mine is essentially using his girlfriend for a place to live. He really should break up with her, but that would mean moving back in with his family. He claims to care about her, but constantly expresses interest in other women, going so far as to say he'd leave her for any one of them, if one opened that door. The girlfriend is clingy, emotionally dependent on him, and completely lacking self-confidence. What do I do? [more inside]

Hey, that's not what you told me last time!

(you are not my lawyer filter) My lawyer has 35+ yrs of experience in family law and is also a guardian ad litem. I am involved in a family case regarding legal custody in a state whose preference is for joint legal custody (not joint physical). He told me in the past that I had a good case for sole legal custody. Now that I am a defendant in a motion for joint legal, and the circumstances of the case have not changed, he is telling me something different, or avoiding most of my questions. How do I approach this? [more inside]

Carleton v. Wesleyan

Carleton v. Wesleyan. I'll be seeing my nephew next week, and he has his future whittled down to these two colleges. Not that it will really have an effect, but I'd like to appear to know more than that it is colder in Minnesota, and asking MeFites seemed easier (and maybe more astute) than reading a lot of PR things. Neither he nor I know what he will major in, but probably nothing practical (ie. if he doesn't wind up an academic, he'll be applying to law schools sooner or later.). Any opinions or insights?

Advice for the bride

Help me come up with some cute or funny advice for a bride-to-be. It's for one of those activities at a bridal shower where everyone writes little bits of advice in a book for her to keep, along with a recipe. I can't stand the usual "let him think he's in charge" old-fashioned sexist stuff, and I think she'd appreciate a joke or a quote or something that's a bit more up to date than that. [more inside]

I have independent means. Help find a low paid, but interesting and social job.

I have a self sustaining internet business that easily supports my lifestyle, but is very isolating. I am in the fortunate position of only having to work 4 hours a week for the next couple of years. I am however going out of my mind with boredom. I want to find an interesting and social job in the UK. Pay isn’t an issue, but I don’t want to work for free. Any suggestions? If it leads to career outside the digital solo realm, all the better, but this is not essential. I am 30, male, and live in Brighton.

All the people who taught her card tricks are dying..

The woman I am romantically interested in has had an extremely taxing couple of years. Her long term boyfriend disappeared and committed suicide last year, and now her chief support/best friend/roommate has been given only 2 months to live. Both of her pets have cancer and will die soon. And me.. well, I'm moving out of country for at least 4 months in about a week >< Her family is all living overseas until mid summer. She says she doesn't think she can handle the pain and doesn't think she can live after the impending death of her friend. She basically has no one to turn to and I want to be a support for her without trying to replace her past. The question: How can I show my care for her without coming off as a looter during a vulnerable time? [more inside]
