- Wedding: July 2014 - Barn
I just moved to a new area where my SO lives (we were long distance for 2.5 years) and the job market is DIRE. We plan to move to a more prosperous province next year, but would like to get married before moving so far away. In order to fund the wedding (and pay for rent, food etc etc) I need to find a job, but no one is hiring full time. I just (finally!) got hired at one place and then got an interview somewhere else, also part time. Has anyone else balanced two part time jobs? Was is hard to spend time with your partner?

I currently have three part time jobs but it’s only for the summer. I am also taking 9 credit hours as well. It hasn’t been terrible. FI and I moved in together this summer as it would be the only way we’d see each other since he works 60-80 hours a week as well. I think only doing two part time jobs is totally manageable.

I worked a full time and a part time to help pay for the wedding. There us no easy answer to spending time together, you just have to make the time count.

When I met my fiancé I had 3 part time jobs. I ended up quitting 2 of them within the first 6 months we were together. There were a variety of factors (terrible boss, I had moved in with him and was suddenly much further away from my jobs) but a major reason was we were at that point where we wanted to be together 24/7 and having 3 jobs made that hard. It’s doable but it’s going to be stressful and you probably will not get to spend as much time as you want with him. It also depends on what kind of hours he works and what you will be working. If I’d had my evenings and weekends free to spend with him it might have been easier to balance multiple jobs and spending time with him. What kind of jobs are you looking at?

I work three part time jobs during the summer. It’s not difficult, although it is a little confusing. My FI just sometimes forgets which job I am at. We spend most nights together.
