Last week I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have no insurance so we are getting married ASAP so I can get on his insurance at work.
Its been an awful week. Lots of crying and to top it off I have to tradeAmy dream wedding for going to the courthouse and getting married.

@Ellliemae: Huge hugs to you. I’m so so sorry that this is happening to you. Could you do the quick wedding now with just immediate family and then your larger wedding as planned?

@Ellliemae: HUGE hugs.
Getting yourself healthy is number 1 – I don’t think anyone would object to you having the wedding of your dreams once you kick breast cancer in the ass!

@Ellliemae: Oh my gosh!! 🙁 I am so so sorry! Honey, you can still have your dream wedding, even if it means getting married early at the courthouse.
All the best to you in hopes of a super quick recovery.

So sorry, hope you get healthy ASAP.
Treat the marriage document as if you were only signing up for health insurance, and have your dream wedding when you can, you deserve it.

Oh my goodness, hon. I am so, so sorry to hear this. First of all, you’re in my thoughts and prayers as you take on this battle. Wishing you all the strength and perseverance you need.
Second, I agree that you can absolutely still have your dream wedding, and it’ll be even more of a dream come true when you’re also celebrating a healthy, happy future!

@Ellliemae: I, too, think you can go to the courthouse now and do the dream wedding later as planned.
It is what DH and I did, when I also needed medical insurance 2 years ago. We got “legalled” 10/12/12 and had our wedding ceremony/reception (some call it “vow renewal” but we didn’t see it that way) 12/7/13.
I am so sorry to hear about the cancer. That was not my health issue but I still am glad we took the action we did.

I also wish you a speedy recovery. I know this must be such a hard time for you, but you don’t have to trade anything! Your friends and family will be honored to celebrate your marriage, no matter if you have the courthouse ceremony now!

@Ellliemae: I agree with everyone else. Get married at the courthouse and throw yourself a kick arse celebration once you have beaten your cancer. Renew your vows at the celebration in front of everyone who loves you as the the vows will mean even more than they did the first time because you guys have already faced one of the toughest things a marriage can go through.
Good luck and keep strong.

@Ellliemae: Good luck with your treatment! Congrats on the wedding as well… go get married and send out announcements. Have a marriage blessing (if you’re religious) or a marriage celebration as soon as you’re well enough to plan one. You don’t have to give up your dream of a big white dress at all!
