Still haven't gotten a stimulus check? You're not the only one. One reader asks the Moneyist: When can I expect a stimulus check if I'm ill and haven't worked or filed taxes since 2016?

I earned $100,000 in 2019, but far less in 2020. Why did I not get a stimulus check? How is that fair? The Moneyist replies: ‘Life on earth is not based on fairness.’ @Quantanamo 

Dear Moneyist: My wife makes 5x my income and now wants us to split expenses 50/50, even threatening me at times. How can we restore balance in our finances and our marriage?

⁠Dear Moneyist, I only received a $200 stimulus payment because my family makes $200,000. I think we deserve a bigger check because we pay more in taxes and we could really use the money. Why can't people like me get a full $1,200 payment?
