    I think you need to do what is best for your health first and then worry about the wedding later. It might be best for you to defer for a semester, rest up, get everything sorted and then go back. I’ve been in a spot where I also failed all my classes and taking a semester off worked wonders for my wellbeing. I can’t offer much on the job though. If you don’t work, will that hurt you financially?

    I don’t know how college works in Australia, but if you took classes in the summer you should be able to finish your degree in under 4 years, probably around 3.

    I think because you are already with a good firm, I would keep that job. I would probably go for part time studies, and work towards your BCOMM. This will help you with promotability and promotions don’t happen overnight. Even taking a course or two will keep you fresh. When you are battling depression, managing wedding planning, work and school could become quite overwhelming. It is good you are able to function at work. To keep your sanity, only you truly know what you can take on. My advice comes from an HR/Recruiter perspective.

    @Jacqui90:  I hate it when that happens. Have one class offered… Anyway, if you wanted to, you could work full time during your semester off and save that money to put towards moving out with your FH?
