574: Can There Be Merit in the Extramarital? | Feedback Friday

Update: 2021-10-154


You've been secretly chatting with an old flame whose torch you still carry, and you even met in person to discover that these feelings are mutual. But there's a big hitch: while you're now single again, she's in what seems to be an otherwise happy marriage and is mother to three. Now you feel frustrated, jealous, and even heartbroken because you can't be with her. Or can you? We'll try to help you find answers to this and more here on Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Rekindling with an old flame whose feelings are said to be mutual should fill you with joy, but her current marriage to another man and motherhood to his children is a bit of a downer. Can there be merit in pursuing something...extramarital?

  • You share custody of two children with a narcissistic ex -- one is hers by a father who was out of the picture by the time you came along, and the other was adopted. The problem: she shamelessly plays favorites and clearly favors her biological kid. Are you hurting your adopted child by allowing her to go to your toxic ex's every other week?

  • You're blind and working toward certification in a well-paying field, but it involves visual math concepts and a lot of the instructional material is inaccessible. On the other hand, your interest in languages makes a career as an interpreter appealing -- and it's much easier to accomplish. Should you finish the certification you've spent so much time and money pursuing, or just cut your losses and take the lower-paying but potentially more satisfying path?

  • You have well-off parents who let you live rent-free in a house they own while you finish school, but you think your roommate may be taking advantage of the situation by mooching free food without asking and even offering it to guests. What can you do to set better boundaries without creating an awkward living environment?

  • Working the night shift doing repetitive work wasn't really what you signed on for, so you've been looking for a new job. Now you've been informed you're on deck for training in a more challenging task that's more up your alley, but you're not sure you can work three more months of overnights before this is slated to happen. What are your best options here?

About the woman or women that are ruining those two children,,, wtf.. Both are totally "narcistic" & certainly not well minded people so how can either be a good parent.. fetal syndrome is a complicated set of circumstances all by itself,, the drunk mother gave the poor child a horrible burden.. This "couple" and these kids need a swift kick in the ass and best grow up and own the responsibility of living. IMO, Ya'll should've given that woman an equal scolding as she did towards the other "parent"... it was obvious you weren't neutrally subjective bro.. no worries, just say'n they all need a chat.🥴

about the translator vs Machine Learning conundrum there is another angle to it. thinking about the Kai Fu Lee Episode. Machine Learning and Al will basically make translators obsolete in the near future. So he would be jumping on one of the careers that Kai Fu Lee was talking about thats gonna be replaced. Ironically away from the thing that will replace it. Maybe he can combine his fondness for Languages and jump in deeper in that aspect in Machine Learning.
