I completely understand where you’re coming from about the money situation.  J is unemployed, but receiving a lousy employment check.  Yeah, it’s better than nothing, but it’s barely paying his bills.  I doubt he’ll find a job any time soon. He’s been having horrible luck keeping a job in his field for over a year now.  

I just started a new job about 10 days ago and I’m not even working full time.  It completely sucks and it worries me.  I’ve told everyone that I either need to pick up hours or I’ll have to work two jobs.  I can’t live off of a 16-20 hour paycheck.  It’s not going to happen.

I wish you and your fiance the best of luck though.  Hopefully things turn around soon.

I’ve totally got the blues. I’m about to lose my job, and I’ve been applying for months now, and I’ve only had three interviews (they all went to more experienced employees). I’m so stressed that I actually flipped out on my best friend who’s having work problems :(.

FI’s pay got cut by about 20%, which completely doesn’t help. We don’t live together, but I’m going to start paying for half his rent, and it’s the same month I get laid off. Stress is killing me.

I so feel you.  Fiance is unemployed, looking, but totally lost about this whole finding a job thing. I’m finishing up my phd, no job on the horizon. We’re both stressed about money, and neither of us ever imagined this is where we’d be in our early 30s. It’s really, really hard. All I can say is hang in there and try to have faith that it will get better.

well that is nice you have help paying for the wedding! my Fiance is going into the Marines soon, but is unemployed right now. I am a stay at home mom, so I have no money. We have to pay for our wedding ourselves so in order to have money for our necesities we have a $1000 budget. So yea I get the blues a lot, but it will be okay in the end, things usually have their way of working out. Don’t let it get you too down =)
