Oh my god we must be twins. Undecided

I feel exactly the same way. Fiance makes about $400/month and it barely covers money for his bills. I have graduated college and got a job in my feild that’s pretty decent pay so I am doing fine. But I am also saving more money than Fiance, who is currently saving nothing.

Fiance did pay $500 deposit for the venue and the $700 for the Dj. But he uses his Financial aid money to do that stuff. Instead of needing a computer though, my Fiance needs music equipment.. everything.. he wants new guitars, new “pick ups” and heads and amps and all these other things that cost tons of money. Lots of times I feel like he puts any extra money towards musical equippment instead of saving for this HUGE investment of a wedding.

I think he resents the wedding (he says he hates it) because I constantly talk about it though. I wish he would sort of see the need to save more. My heart drops everytime he talks about spending an extra $200 on an amp that his friend is selling just because “it’s a good price”.

He is planning on using his financial aid money to pay for the honeymoon, but he needs $2500 for the one he picked (it’s a surprise for me) and I know he has rent to pay (he pays semesterly), so I really don’t think he is going to afford it. It just sucks..

But yet, he is perfectly on with only having a work study program with maximum 15 hours of work/week. If he would just try to get a real part time job have more hours, he would be fine. It’s quite ridiculous. It’s very frystrating! And I think we have a good reason to be frustrated about these things. I’m glad to see that you’re trying really hard to save as much as you can though.

It’s like.. how do we make them see that saving money for this wedding thing we’re doing is A GOOD IDEA. ugh.

I feel bad for the both of us!
