That’s not a fun situation.

From an outsider’s perspective? You should probably start looking for a plan b that doesn’t involve his parents points.

I think if it is very important to you to have a honeymoon you should just book it now with the intent of paying for it yourselves. If your Fiance has already asked them, he shouldn’t keep pestering.

You say that they are having money problems. Maybe they are embarassed to tell yoru FH that they are unable to pay the bill. I agree with PP and would book something now if you are worried about airfares.

Perhaps YOU could pay the bill? It’s probably still less than what you would pay to book something else. If they are having money troubles I’m sure that your honeymoon is pretty low on their list of priorities.

I understand the situation really sucks, but I also dont think its fair for you to be irritated at them for their money issues. Can you pay the bill so you can book it?? I would definitely not wait, if they are having financial issues, I’m sure a timeshare is the last thing on their mind to pay off.

Moose1209: Is on to something. If THEY don’t pay the bill, you’d be out some serious bucks to take a honeymoon anyway. Why not be altruistic and pay that bill for them? You’ll save some $$ on traveling, it will help his parents with one of their mounting bills, you’d get to plan “months in advance” as you wanted to anyway, and everybody’s happy.

Good luck to you.

Thats no good. I would start researching other options, just so all your eggs arent in one basket. That way if it ends up not working out and you dont get stuff booked in time you wont feel all the resentment towards them. Try to understand their money issues and as much as it sucks try to see past the bad parts. good luck
