Why not elope, and have a celebration at a later date? I wouldn’t keep it a secret though… I never really understand why the secrecy especially if you have a 2 yr old and another on the way and your Fiance wants to be married before having baby #2. 

 

Its not uncommon to elope or have a very small ceremony and then a celebration at a later date.

What is his reason for wanting to get married now?  Is it reasonable for you to move it up to later this year as a compromise?

@Madi1886:  

Well, surely he understands your financial situation.  What is he suggesting?  Is he just wanting to go to the courthouse?  Are you hell bent on an actual wedding?  

If that’s the reality, then you’ll have to compromise somewhere.  As mentioned in my other post, which I think got deleted, we ended up at the courthouse when our infant daughter had to have immediate surgery (we had planned a wedding, but obviously, this took priority).  It’s a few years later and we’re planning a small vow renewal.  That’s an option, of course, but it’s not the same as having a wedding, so you have to look at what you’d give up with something like that.  Not to mention, next year isn’t a very long time to plan a vow renewal after your wedding.
