Would you maybe be able to pay for part of the set? What a tough situation. 🙁

How much longer until your Fiance graduates?  When my husband and I were both in school, it was so tough when we were on breaks because you just don’t know what to do with yourself.  Are there any other positions that he could apply for that might bring in more money so things won’t be so tight?  I know it’s not idea but you can work almost full time with 9 hours at school (I did it and I work with a lot of people who do it).

I agree with Mrs. Grape, if your able to pitch in towards the cost of the ring, you would more than likely be able to get it sooner than if your Fiance was covering the entire amount.

@SouthernGirl: Perhaps you could remind him that paying for a ring isn’t really such a huge deal (hell, I paid for my entire e-ring myself!). It sounds like he’s a little old-fashioned and wants to do all the work; however, you may be able to convince him to let you help out. If you try to convince him, I’d stress that you just want to be engaged and moving actively toward your future together–and if paying for the wedding set can help, you’re all for it.

@SouthernGirl: You could do that! Hehe. Sneaky, but cute.

Do you have to pay in full to get the discount? Can you put it on a credit card and quickly pay it off. He shouldn’t fret on who is paying of the ring. My Fiance is paying me back little by little for our rings because I paid for them up front.

why isn’t he applying for financial aid without his parents? if they make too much technically but can’t actually afford to contribute, he needs to apply solo so they aren’t considered.

Ugh– the financial aid thing is ABSOLUTELY horrible. I am in the same position as your FH and his parents. My parents made too much money but the financial aid department doesn’t account for debt/ prices of homes, etc. So my parents can’t help at all, and I’m forced to take out student loans which I don’t want to be doing. FH and I are having our wedding in May, but we’re talking about getting legally married this month (before the end of the year) so that I could apply for financial aid without my parents in 2011 (opposed to waiting until 2012), and then qualify for some financial aid grants (which I won’t have to pay back). I doubt we’re going to do that, but we’re still talking about it.

Would that be an option for you two?

@SouthernGirl: There are exceptions. I didn’t have to claim my parents’ info on my Pell Grant application because I was a ward of the state until I was 18. But…all the more reason for you two to get married, right? That way, he can file on his own.
