Should I buy cryptocurrency on behalf of my wife?
DEAR HARRIETTE: My wife and I have touched the stock market a bit since we got married. I’m much more interested than her, but we made decisions together on what to buy.
It was also fun during the pandemic, as we made money investing in the technology and services that people used a lot to get by. But now we’ve hit a wall.
My partner doesn’t believe in cryptocurrency, but I want to buy some. Should I invest under both of our names or just mine? I wouldn’t want to do it without her, but I also don’t want to go against her wishes by including her in something she doesn’t believe in.
DEAR INVESTOR: Be transparent with your wife. It is less about including her name than about letting her know that you want to make an investment in this area even if she is not comfortable with it.
Let him know your intentions. Since you are in a relationship, even if you do not put his name on something, you can still share the wealth if you collect it.
If she’s ready to learn, teach her what you discovered about the future of cryptocurrency so that she can familiarize herself with it. A lot of people are suspicious of it, largely because they don’t understand what it is. It is essentially a digital form of currency.

The more your wife learns about this new form of trading, the better able she will be to make an investment decision. If she maintains her lack of interest, so be it. If you intend to invest anyway, do so openly and honestly so that there are no surprises.
DEAR HARRIETTE: My two year old boyfriend told me he was a bit bored in our relationship. He made it clear that he wasn’t bored with me specifically, but he did miss what our relationship is all about.
My first thought was that we have to break up. I suggested it to him, and he completely refused. I don’t want to break up either, but how else should I deal with him being bored in our relationship?
Boyfriend is bored
DEAR LITTLE FRIEND is bored: You jumped to conclusions immediately thinking of the worst.
Stop for a moment. Think about what your boyfriend is saying. Looks like he would like to mix things up, add activities and adventures in your life together. After the interminable quarantine, it is not surprising that he asks for more.
Brainstorm the things you can do together. Do a little research near you. What sites can you explore together? Now that the weather is warm across the country, look for outdoor activities you can do together and with friends.
Talk about other people you would like to welcome into the fold. Hold small gatherings, outdoors if possible, with new and old friends.
