I have pushed mine back an entire year for a lot of different reasons. At the end of the day, you are still together. The day we look forward to will be even more perfect if the two of you an enjoy it without looking around and being reminded of how your decision to keep the date meant enduring significant financial hardship

Your life can still be together whether you’re married or not. It’s just one day for a wedding but a whole lifetime for marriage. I’m not being unsympathetic (will be engaged for about 20months when we do marry) but I must admit I’ve been enjoying the planning and will be quite sad when it’s all over. Anything you can do to prolong it and I guess, get more out of it isn’t a bad thing.

My FI and I pushed back our wedding twice for this exact reason. The first time FI lost his job and the second time we just realized we weren’t taking the time to price things out and that we were going to put ourselves into debt. Luckily we are finally getting married next year. I’m sorry that this is happening to you, but it does get better.

My friend just had to do this because work came up. I’m so sorry, I know you’re disappointed. Silver lining though: more time to plan to make it even more perfect than it would have been before.

Yeah if you aren’t living together yet then you’re right it’s a different situation. I couldnt’ wait to live with my partner when that was happening too (mostly because I was in a share house before) and it was nice to just have our own space. Plenty of arguments when you first live together though, I reckon enjoy this bliss now even more.

maamerose:  It’s definitely not as magical and amazing as you imagine. Especially if you love your own space (which I did) and have never lived with a partner before (which I hadn’t). But you get used to it and you learn to negotiate your differences. We’ve lived together for 3.5years now and have just learnt to accept each other’s ways of doing things and that one way is not necessarily better. He’s made me a neater and more organised person that’s for sure.
