    I don’t have a job yet (mostly freelance) but FI just got a job and he has yet to ask them for time off and we get married in a little over 2 weeks! He keeps saying he hasn’t had time to ask, but I’m getting really nervous! If they don’t give him the time off he will have to quite because we can’t switch anything around this close to the wedding, everything is already paid for including the honeymoon. So we are just keeping our fingers crossed at this point…he started last week and he needs 10-11 days off.

    @KT_Hime:  he needs to tell them, like yesterday. It’s not worth losing a job over, but at the same time, if he waits til the last second, I wouldn’t blame them for denying him. Why didn’t he talk about it in the interview or when he was offered the position?

    I was, but mostly I was just sad that we didn’t go on our honeymoon immediately. As a matter of fact, we’re not going until our 2-year anniversary, which is next year. It’s already booked (yay!) because now I know my Spring Break – I am also a teacher.

    It’s not the best nor the worst thing, but I feel you. 🙂 Congratulations on your job and your upcoming marriage!
