- Wedding: July 2012
I just need support/to vent. My fiance and I bought a house over the summer and moved in the last week in August. About one month later (2 weeks ago), our house was burglarized. The theives stole my computer, which had all of my wedding planning stuff on it (a 40+page word document) and my photos from our vacation when he proposed, my fiance’s two work computers, his camera, a few other electronics, etc. It’s been a rough couple of weeks trying to work with the police to catch them, replacing our things, and getting our house to feel safe again. Although the police looked hard, dusted for prints, etc, they could not find any evidence to show who had been in our house. Not to mention, our insurance company warned us that if we file a claim, there is a good chance we will be kicked off because we’ve only been paying for 2 months- as long as we’ve owned our house. It’s been stressful and draining having to deal with everything, but we’re doing well as a couple supporting each other through it and trying to stay positive.
Last week, the theives were caught after having burglarized another house. They had some of our stolen goods on them at the time so we knew it was our guys, but they won’t be charged with burglary of our home because of the lack of evidence that they were even in our home. We were hopeful for a while that some of our things might be recovered, but we’ve gotten no reassurance from the police in the past few days.
A couple of days ago my fiance realized that the burglars stole a really cheap, crappy safe that he used to store letters from old girlfriends and stuff. We laughed about it because they took that one instead of the one with all of our bank account info, and felt relieved. Suddenly today while at my cousin’s wedding, my fiance realized that my wedding band was in that safe. He is not a sentimental person, but the look on his face when he figured that out makes my heart melt to think about. He even said “It was just the most perfect 2 rings together” and he picked them out all by himself. The GIA paperwork was in there as well, so I’m not sure we can even get insurance to replace it. In my head, I calling these guys all sorts of names that I would never say aloud. These kids that did this have really crossed a line. It’s personal now, and I just don’t know how I can make my Fiance feel better about this. He just went to the police station at 11:30pm to tell them about it and update the police report– that’s how upset he is.
Sorry for the novel, bees, but I just don’t know what to do. Any advice? Been through something similar? Help 🙁
