Let's say you are married and both work full-time jobs. Your spouse pays a few hundred a month out of her own paycheck to help pay her retired mother's rent. A few years later, you have children and your spouse wants to quit her job to stay home with the kids.

Assuming you had excess income, would you offer to chip in for your mother-in-law's rent?

In a marriage or long-term, committed relationship, do you have the "what's mine is ours" mindset?

Does your cat/dog/other pet ever do anything that freaks you out?

My cat keeps staring upwards and yowling and then she keeps climbing on the highest point in the house, looking at this same spot in the living room, and yowling.

I am spooked.

I was watching 'Are you Afraid of the Dark?' the other day and my kid (4 next month) came in the room and wanted to watch it too because he loves all things scary (the music caught his attention when he was in the other room). It wasn't a scary episode and was almost over so I let him finish it but now he wants to watch all of the episodes. 

Is 4 years old too young for the majority of the episodes in the series?

1. Around how much extra money does one need to have in order to not be considered someone who lives paycheck to paycheck?

2. Would it be a dealbreaker if someone you're interested is living at home with a parent? Say the reason is legitimate...like the person is living at home to emotionally support their recently widowed parent and save some money.

Do you know of any quaint, old fashioned towns in the Bay Area/Northern California? I am trying to plan a trip with my mom, who is in her 60s.

Alternatively, what is the best town you've ever visited, and why?

What special rituals or days does your family have?

I'm looking at an American recipe which lists a can of 'tomato sauce' as an ingredient.

What we call 'tomato sauce' in Australia is what Americans call Ketchup/Catsup, and it never comes in a can, so I'm now French-kissing a language barrier. What would the 'tomato sauce' that this recipe calls for actually be?

Is it weird to cancel a date you know will end in sexy times if you're on the rag? 

In context, I've been seeing this guy for about a month and we sleep together every time we hang out and I really like spending time with him clothed too, but it's always awkward to me to broach the topic of periods, even generally, with guys (I know I shouldn't, be an adult, blah blah blah, it just seems like an intimate thing to discuss, imo), so I tend to just... avoid them... every 21 days... But I like him! And I still want to see him. I'm totally be ridiculous, I'm sure, but there you have it

Dude opinions appreciated.
