  1. Bavarian school system

    I'm afraid you are very wrong, formal levels of education do correlate with income.  
  2. Non-EU Student pregnant with a German father

    You also need to speak to a lawyer about the possibility of the father obtaining shared custody after the child is born and whether he might then have the right to prevent the child leaving the country. If you are not sure you want to stay in the country for good a child born in Germany can be a trap. As I am not a lawyer I have no idea whether or not this can become a problem for unmarried parents.
  3. Not getting along with flatmates is a rather common problem. As most people would not move in with somebody they dislike beforehand it's probably fair to say that issues appear after a few weeks or months. I wouldn't want to be stuck in a flat with two other people for a year if it turned out we were clearly not made to live together.
  4. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I did not get to vote. That is a fact. You need to see a doctor.
  5. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I care about the result and I was not allowed to vote, as has already been pointed out to you. Repeating things that are simply not correct doesn't make them right.
  6. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    The right to vote was lost after 15 years abroad. Sign it!  Revoke article 50 and remain in the EU
  7. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    As long as you are a British citizen you can sign the petition to Revoke article 50 and remain in the EU You didn't get to vote in the referendum so this is your opportunity to speak up!
  8. Breast reduction surgery

    @Cherryalessia You didn't mention having tried the gym. If it's really just the back ache bothering you then imho that should be the first thing you look in to.
  9. Hmm, you are in your mid 30s and have so far managed to save €115k. Now you are taking a gamble on an asset currently valued at €900k, at the current rate, more than you would save in your lives. If house prices drop by only 11% your life savings will be wiped out. There is a fair chance this will work out just fine for you but I am with Mike Melga on this one, that's a gamble you can't really afford to lose.
  10.   I did the Maths 10 years ago. My Maths was probably right but I was still wrong. Monthly interest payments were actually less affordable then - think 4-5% interest. Yes, prices might collapse but then again they might not. There are sound reasons to believe interest rates will stay close to zero for the next few decades, mainly not to bankrupt Southern Europe. Who knows, perhaps the ECB might even embark on an Abe-themed trip, if that happens you might want to pile up as much debt as you can. Then again, the ECB might not. It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.
