Sometimes I do, too! We already have a house, but I go “oh, man, 18K….we could have gone on 4 vacations! we could have money for a baby’s college!” etc etc. But, what’s done is done and you just have to trust that in hindsight, you examined all the options and felt this was the best one. Yeah, 18K in the bank is nice, but we also started our lives off together with a lovely wedding with our friends and family and we didn’t break the bank over it. I think, with anything, it’s hard to pay cash for anything like that. I know when we kept paying $4,000 here and there we were like, “ow that hurts!” b/c seriously in your life, when do you normally hand out chunks of change like that! Just go forward and be financially responsible over the next year or two =]. If youd’ bought the house, you may have regretted not having a wedding. htere’s always a way to manage both.

I have felt exactly the same way, so thank you for posting this. and ejs4y8, that’s some of the best advice I’ve heard in a looooong time. You’re absolutely right. After all, we only do this once, right?
