That sucks!!!  It’s easy to look back and say “i should have stayed here, did this or that” but not easy to take a risk.  You’re risk didn’t play out the way you wanted but there still is hope.  You’ll get the job you want but it may take a while.  I was told that I would have a hard time getting a job after getting my BSN and I did.  It sucked (I hate job fairs) and after a couple months people started calling (then stringing me along).  Job hunting sucks in this economy but the good news is that employeers aren’t holding your time unemployed (or working as something else) against you.  Good luck out there!  I’m sending good vibes your way.

If it’s just finances and there’s pressure on buying a ring, why not either combine finances for a cheaper ring or pick something like a CZ out that he can propose with which will serve as a “placeholder” ring? My best friend and her fiancé were both dirt poor (still are) when they got engaged, so she actually picked out a super pretty $20 opal ring from an Avon catalog that he proposed with. It’s getting a bit banged up now that she’s had it a while, so he plans to “re-propose” with a higher-quality ring after he’s out of med school.

Similarly, my Fiance and I bought a cheaper (under $200) ring together with me doing the heavier part of the purchasing. It wasn’t any less of a proposal/engagement, and we’re both happy and engaged.

i agree with the CZ ring as a placeholder.  And maybe a smaller wedding would do for now, or an elopment.  You could always have that big reception later on down the line, like a renewal at 5 years or something?

PS – I know how much the job market sucks right now, and I wish you the best in finding something. Just keep hanging on, you definitely will find something.

I know fertility is an issue, but don’t let it dominate your planning. Look into Traditional Chinese Medicine to help you regulate your hormones. I would read the books “Infertility Cure” and “Making Babies: A proven 3-month plan for max fertility”.  Also check out this website- http://www.naturalfertilityshop.com/ 

There are things you can be doing now to help your fertility later.

Good Luck!
