SO’s brother had said his wedding will be next year. SO found out yesterday it will actually be March this year. SO works weekends in the entertainment industry, and his weekends for the next 6 months are already booked up. If he doesn’t work, he doesn’t get paid. It’s his only source of income, and he can’t afford to miss work and risk allowing his opposition to get a foot in the door – he’s worked really hard to get where he is in what can be a fickle industry. He’s so upset. The wedding would require us to travel. Had he have known in advance, he could have discussed it with his booking agent and gotten the time off, and the club he works at could have organised another act that isn’t a competitor of SO’s…. Such a tough situation. I know SO’s other brother will be in the same situation – he lives on weekend work and works for himself, so he has no one to replace him besides a competitor.
I don’t really know what to say to him. I don’t want to sway him one way or the other, it has to be his decision, he’s just upset that for him, this is last minute, especially when he was expecting it to be a year away!
