I am sorry this has happened to you but it sounds like he is such a lucky guy to have such a strong and positive future wifey. It sounds like you guys have such a strong foundation for whenever you are able to get married .  We had to postpone getting engaged and married because he had to finish grad school which is $$$$$; and while it was hard waiting at the time, looking back I am glad I had to wait. We have grown so much since then (3 years) and I finally feel like we are really really ready to get married now and it was all worth it.

oh for sure, i can relate to not focusing on waiting so much when something unfortunate happens. i waited 2 yrs total for a ring, the 2nd year most of that time my Fiance was unemployed,

part of me atleast felt relieved because now its a valid reason why he couldnt get the ring. but another part of me felt stress to solely provide and support him (which i did) it was rough. i also felt bad for him after seeing his endless job search for so long, you just want to see them happy.

 but as soon as he got another job, i felt like celebrating! shortly after i got my ring, so all is well now. itll be 5 years together this august, it was worth the wait. hope your guy is able to find something else! i

Ohh I am so sorry to hear that he is losing his job. I am sure he wont be looking for work for too long.

But you are right though – sometimes its the bad things in life that really cement our feelings for the other person.

This happened to us- I had my ring picked out and we were going to use the income tax refund for it. My ring was $4500 and my fiance was getting back over 6K. However, before the money came in, expenses started happening- $1500 went to a car repair alone… so instead of pushing the engagement back, we got a cheaper ring and will upgrade later.
