That seems wrong to me that you lost the job because you got engaged.  Did the company know about your engagement and that you might be moving?  In the future, that might be something that you don’t want to bring up if you have a job interview since it isn’t their business if you are staying for a year or 20 years.  We ended up having to move a month after the wedding.  Thankfully, I was able to keep it a secret from my bosses until it was closer to the time that I was leaving.  Unfortunately, now that I have moved I have no career because I can’t find an open position anywhere.

Wow, that really stinks that you lost the job offer because of that… it’s not really any of their business, but I’m sure this happens all the time. 

I’m worried about this because my boyfriend is graduating in August, but he’ll have everything done in June.  He’s been looking for jobs. He’s looking everywhere, not just Dallas, where I live.  If he gets something somewhere else I’ll move to be with him (eventually anyway, maybe after a ring), and it’s hard keeping that a secret.  He’s going to make significantly more money than I will so it’s just what makes sense, but it kinda sucks not being able to talk about it with coworkers because we talk about everything here.  We are all friends here and they always ask what he’s doing when he graduates and what I’m doing.  😛
