OH yeah… I’m the breadwinner and as much as I’m ok with it, it stinks.  Keep holding on, it’s bound to get better!

I know what you mean, I’m right there with you.  Right now I am working a full-time job (probably somewhat temporary, as I plan to go to grad school at some point once I figure out what I want to do), but my SO has no real job.  He’s got some income coming in, I suppose, but he’s not saving a penny of it.  I know he’s not going to propose any time soon, because he wants to feel like he’s got enough income to pay for a ring (and help support us).  It is sooo frustrating, because he isn’t shy about saying he wants to marry me someday.  I’d marry him now if he would agree to it.

We just have to hang in there and accept that some day it will be OUR turn.  And watch our friends get engaged.  Blah.  It will be worth it eventually!

It will, haha.  I think in these days with the cruddy state of the economy this is probably a really common reason why engagements get put off.  At least we can complain about it together!

We also just moved across the country… I’ve been jobless for THREE months.  But I am starting to work tomorrow.  Make sure to apply as many jobs as you can, SOMETHING will come through!

@crosscountry09:  Hang in there.  I know how difficult it is to move for school and be broke.

I know it’s sometimes extremely difficult in the moment, but remember that everything happens for a reason.

SO and I had an original timeline that would have had us getting married this summer!  Right now I’m so stressed about moving to start an internship that I can’t even imagine planning a wedding!

We’ve had a lot of things change in the past year and a half or so, and it just didn’t make sense to follow the original plan. 

There was definitely a point in time when I was very saddened/frustrated that our original plan/timeline wasn’t going to work.  Looking back, I’m glad I didn’t have that added stress!

I can completely relate! When me and the fiance finally get married and move out next year we will be without any furniture other than bed tv dresser for months… we plan on tv trays and chairs… πŸ™‚
life is an adventure. Love while you can and enjoy the memories, while i know it sucks now, later in life you’ll look back and think we made it through alllll that!

Yes! I’m waiting to hear if my bf is going to have to come out of pocket to help his mom catch up on about 7 months of past due mortgage (could be around 5k!) then on top of that he’s got 7 credits left for school thatwon’t be covered by his jobs tuition reimbursement plan…so that’s 4k right there…..ARGH!! I would take a twist tie at this point, but he’s not gonna do that…boooo!

No, seriously.  Sometimes I wonder why I wasn’t the bee that was born with everything. And then I have to begrudgingly remember that my fate is mine and that I was born to worry about stupid stuff like money.  BUT, I have been lucky that I don’t have to worry about health.  Remember that no matter how hard you think you have it, there is a bee that has it even harder.

(that actually never makes me feel better…that’s why I keep coming to give mini bee hugs)
