Today was a bad day at work and I just couldn’t wait to leave and get home to the FI and at 4:30 he sends me a text “I lost my job”. We are getting married in two months and are paying for everything ourselves. Essentially, we had planned right down to the penny. Adding extras along the way because we knew we could afford it. I even gave us a small emergency fund, but I never planned on one of us losing our jobs. Now I’m super stressed. He said that we will figure it out, but because I know our budget we will be 6k short. You don’t just find 6k. LOL. I know it could be worse but I am so amazingly stressed. The FI isn’t ready to tell anyone right now and well I figured I’d post it here just to get it out.

OMG I am so sorry. While he’s looking for a job can he do anything on the side. My FI donates plasma and while it isn’t much it still brings in 200 a month.

@mwitter80: I am so sorry hun! The same thing happened to my dad who is paying for most of our wedding, He’s still looking for a job but hopefully something will come along for both of our guys!

I’m really sorry that you guys have to go through that right now. Try and stay as positive as you can and just be there for each other.

That’s so stressful. I hope that he can find something to help make ends meet.

I am so sorry and I understand that is so stressful, but I personally believe that when a door closes a window opens….I know it might not be okay right now but atleast your FI has a positive attitude about things. If you are so close to the wedding at this point you have probably invested too much money to back out. Once your FI is ready you should talk to both of your families about the situation and see if they would be willing to help you out due to your situation. Best of luck in everything!

Oh Honey that’s horrible. Be strong, think of ways to get some things done yourself. I’ll tell you a story a friend of mine and his now wife came up with. I’m not a Big Oprah Fan but he told me they got the idea from her, see if Vendors and such will graciously either give discounts or use sample products for advertisement. He and the now Mrs went so far as to talk to the local TV stations about their story and at a Pro Baseball game I believe. Nothing beats a failure but a try, Google it from Oprah and see what you can work with. Keep your head up, smile, and know that no matter what you have each other….its getting through the tough times together that makes LOVE and Life great.
