Re: Using you all as sounding board if you don't mind?

I was thinking about letting them live their lives out with us in the US, where in my post does it suggest we would put them down? I'd never even consider that, ever, ever, ever.

Why concerned...

Re: Using you all as sounding board if you don't mind?

We met in the UK and she is well up for moving over there. In fact she is the one who would rather move as soon as we can and I'm the one dithering about timing.

Re: NI contributions and catch up

I'm almost thinking this might be the safest option. I think if I can pay class 2 I will do it, if not then I won't bother and just use my own funds to finance my retirement.
