So yes, was let go from work today. Literally a week after my wedding. No honeymoon since we are planning for next month. I was at my happiest on wedding day a week ago to extremely sad today, I’m officially unemployed. My husband said he can handle all finances, and suggested for me to take a break. I am still sad….never been without work. I’ve always been financially independent and took pride. My mon in law said it’s time for babies. Dont know what to do with myself. Need a little pick me up….did anyone go through similar situation? Any good quotes to help me through this?

I’m so sorry this happened to you. I would just take my time working on my resume and looking for good jobs. Try to enjoy your extra time at home for now, do some things you’ve been meaning to do but didn’t have the time and look forward to your honeymoon.

I’m so sorry! Being let go is such an awful/sad feeling.
I was let go from my job at the end of February-5 months until our wedding. I’m still unemployed. It’s been difficult because it feels like this time should be so fun and exciting, getting ready for our wedding but I’m so stressed trying to find a job and survive financially.
I guess for me I just trust in God and that he will take me where I need to be. When I was working my Fiance and I were on such totally different schedules so now we have been getting to spend a lot more time together.
My Fiance and I just finished up a pre-marital class through chruch and they talk about how in your married life your spouse comes first, then children, THEN work. I totally understand how shocking and weird it is to suddenly not have a job but maybe this is a great thing. You can focus on your new married life for a bit and really enjoy being newlyweds! Take time to be sad about your job but trust you’ll be ok and you’ll end up where you need to be.
Isn’t it great to have a partner who is there for you and will help and support you? I know I wouldn’t be so okay without my supportive FI! Something will come along and you two will get to go on a great honeymoon! Keep your chin up! I’m sending happy thoughts and good vibes your way! 😀

Just wanted to say sorry :-/ thats really a bummer but it sounds like you have an amazing husband who wants to lift you up and really support you. I would take his advice – take a little break if its possible, as someone else said – do some stuff you have been wanting to but couldnt because you were so busy at work (massage? take a walk? picnic? yoga? flower arranging? a concert? that intricate complex baking recipe you’ve wanted to try but couldn’t because it takes like 4 hours lol? even some volunteer work that you’ve been thinking about but didnt have time for?). Maybe try to think of it as an amazing opportunity to enjoy your first few weeks as a married lady. When things get to be too much for me and I feel like Im too sad to try and get through it, I try to remember that things really do happen for a reason (its always hard, sometimes impossible to see the reason at the moment) and since thats true, nothing would come my way that I couldn’t handle. Good luck to you!
