Anyone else have budget blows?
A few months into our engagement I got laid off. We had to use our savings/my payout from my old employer/$$ from a relative’s passing to get by. That was from March- June. Then FI had some legal issues that cost (and are costing us) probably $1700 total- the rest of what we saved after I started working, plus shower gifts of $$. NOW, FI found out because of the economy, they’re only getting paid half their bonuses- his was supposed to get (aka EARNED) over $2,000 but is only getting $1,000, and pretty much just $800 after taxes. I’m already working a 2nd job- he might too until the wedding since last year he made $7,000 in bonuses and when we bought our house they added that in as part of his base salary- aka it’s BASE for a reason!
Anyone else taking unexpected blows to their budget?
