- Wedding: May 2013
Hello Ladies. I need your advice/comments:
I graduated in May 2011 with a BA in Communications. A couple of months later I was lucky enough to get hired. Unfortunatley my male employer insisted on harrassing me to the point where I could no longer handle working there. So, I quit. I didn’t bother seeking unemployment because my employer has a lot of power in the city. As a new graduate, I didn’t want to make myself look bad.
I got engaged a few months before I quit my job.
Now it’s been ten months of no work and our accounts are drained. We can no longer contribute to the wedding account. Even with all this, his family thinks we are doing okay financially and expect our wedding to still happen in May (They are contributing a few thousand). I am struggling with the thought of going any further with our planning, since I don’t like the uncertainty of not knowing if I will have a job soon. My fiance has a very good paying job, but with my student loans it’s causing us to live paycheck to paycheck. Every time I bring up the idea of postponing the wedding my fiance gets upset and will not discuss it.
Would it be terrible for us to postpone the wedding even though we already put down a deposit on the reception venue? Do you have any advice or at least can you relate? I don’t have a mother or close family member that can give good advice. Help!!
