@Rysgirl:  Would this not be covered some by insurance? I would think your deductible would be under 2k!

Ohh so sorry to hear about the set back – and so frustrating that someone has done this to your car.

I think, if it’s going to be really expensive to repair, ues your insurance. It might make the premiums go up, but that’s something you pay over time, not out of pocket right now. Plus, let’s say they start to fix it and other issues arise, this way it’s not one surprise after another (and maybe more money than you thought).

Sorry I just realized you had the 1k deductible figure in your post. I read too fast.

@Rysgirl:  That really sucks. Keep your chin up, though! Even though moving can be stressful, maybe a new place will make him even more eager to start the next chapter of your lives! He could surprise you 🙂

Ouch, that’s really rotten! I hope moving will make life easier, despite the minor set-back. I’ve never had to deal with such expensive car repairs, any chance a shop would let you make payments to spread it out? On the bright side, you know he is saving up, and maybe you’ll be able to find a slightly cheaper place to live. Tackle one hurdle at a time, and I’m sure tomorrow will be better.

I am sorry this happened to you but I will be honest… I would be more concerned about who did this and/or moving instead of the setback for the ring- that is MALICIOUS and if you didn’t do any thing to anyone- that is a concern for safety. Are you being stalked, is someone singling you out? I really hope this is was a random act of vandalism that won’t be repeated but until you know that for a fact, I wouldnt be concerned about a ring.

Don’t get me wrong- I DO understand how it feels. A month before my Fiance proposed, we had our car broken into and his father had a stroke- I would be lying if I said the thought about my proposal being pushed back didn’t flow through my head. But after the thought, I put it out of my head- I couldn’t be upset about not getting a ring since other issues were more important. Instead, I focused on supporting him through that time and made sure he wasn’t anymore stressed that he needed to be. I also cut out ALL ring, engagement, marriage talk- didn’t want to come across as selfish. He surprised me a month later with the engagement.

Hang in there!

I’m really sorry to hear you’re having such a hard time of it. I truly hope things improve really soon. I’m a Fatalist – I believe that things happen for a reason, so maybe the next place you move to will be your ideal home, perhaps big enough to raise a family, who knows 🙂
