Lawyer up, or download?

Our local credit union offers an estate planning program for a good price ($350 for a couple) which includes will, durable POA, healthcare POA, living will and HIPPA authorization. I want to do this. We have 2 children. My husband thinks we can save $ by downloading forms off the internet and getting them notarized. But I believe getting the package done at the credit union (prepared by a lawyer) is a better idea. Isn't it? [more inside]

How do you know if it's worth pursuing?

I am now in a living situation where I live with a bunch of friends. I was always close friends with one of the girls (for about a year) and one night we cuddled. It led to some more cuddling for a few nights but it bothered me. Not because I didn't like it but because I'm the type that wants things to be clear. I've always been in the mindset that if I like a girl, I will pursue her and make it clear to her. Leaving things unclear can lead to messy relationships/breakups/fights and hurt feelings in the end.

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]
