You still have some time- try to find a new job. then quit. Quitting a job with no backup is very risky and I wouldn’t reccommend it. Good Luck! That is terrible what they did.

@orchidaloha:  If you can find something else, then quit. I wouldn’t quit a job without having another one lined up. Yes, a wedding is important. Of course it is! But it is a single event whereas your job is your livelihood that will support all future events. Your partner doesn’t “trust” your employer but they are not there to be your friends. They will make the tough decisions that are best for the business.

I would not make an emotional decision in this case, I would be incredibly logical. It’s not like you are missing your actual wedding! If you can live off of just one income, then that’s a different story. The economy is tough and can be surprising though so I wouldn’t recommend it.

@orchidaloha:  I would quit , that’s completely ridiculous that they will not let you have a couple of days off for your wedding

Honestly I would start searching now and then if you say jobs are easy to come by you should be able to switch and take that week off.

If money isn’t an issue I would quit.  No offense your family comes before a job. Period. Give them an ultimatum, either give you the time off or you quit. If they are that short handed they may think twice and agree to your time off.

Good luck!

That’s pretty nutty of them. I’d start looking for another job now, but wouldn’t leave (yet).

@orchidaloha:  I agree with fellow posters. GET A NEW JOB LINED UP FIRST!!! You dont want to quit and then have something happen to your FI’s job and be SOL. Dont take for granted that you have a job unlike others who are struggling to make ends meet. Do not be selfish.

How easy would it be to find a new job?

That is so ridiculous! I would be so mad!  I am the person that makes emotional decisions, so I probably would quit but i definitely think you should see if you can find another job before that. Better safe than sorry!

@orchidaloha:  I would start looking, and if/when you have somthing pretty much lines up I would quit. I think they just told you yes to get you hired, which is absolutely wrong.

@orchidaloha:  I would look for another job. You’re close enough to your wedding date that you could say you can’t start until the 13th. Then you could opt to quit early if you want.

If money weren’t an issue, I’d definitely quit. That’s really shady on your boss’ part.

If it’s not an issue finding a new job then start looking now and quit. I wouldn’t want to work for a place like that anyways.
