@happy2bee: Hi! I am also new to these boards. I had a layoff in 2009 and I am still recovering from the financial hardship it caused me! I know first hand how tough the job market is no matter the skill & education level. SO is not exactly where he wants to be financially speaking and it DOES have a ton to do with when they feel comfortable proposing and moving forward. I, on the other hand have a pretty great job and am more comfortable financially than he is. That doesn’t mean I’m just rollin’ in cash, lol, but I can pay all my bills and still have $ left over for other things. Not many women admit this, although a few have on this site, but I am actually helping SO pay for a ring that I picked out. I will not pay for all of it, but I don’t mind chipping in for something I am going to have for the rest of my life. Plus there are PLENTY of things he can pay for later like deposit on our venue, wedding dress etc. It’s not an option for everyone, but even in financially tough times, there are still ways to get engaged and move forward. The way I see it is to stick by each other now. Because what if we had been married and one of us lost our jobs? Then what? How we would handle it then? So we are getting through obstacles together.
