Ok this is not really a vent. It’s more of a… “I need to tell someone this family secret because I’m not supposed to tell anyone but I can’t keep it in.”
My fiance’s cousin “Liza” got married last year and they spent $70,000 on their wedding (on a loan!) They had orchids as their flowers, hummer limo, $5000 gown from Kleinfeld.. the works! It was a super beautiful and grand wedding.
Anyway, they’re supposed to celebrate their 1 year anniversary this July. And well, I just heard that they’ve now separated! Apparently the husband was cheating. It’s all very hush hush right now and only one person in the family knows (my fiance) because they are close. Liza doesn’t want to tell anyone in the family because she is embarassed. She has left the country with her brand new ‘fling” and gone to Costa Rica to seek solace! I don’t know when she’ll be back.
This is so sad! Nine months of marriage, dunzo! And they spent so much money!

That is so sad!
Just another reason to remember it’s about the marriage and not the wedding!

Exactly! It’s all about the marriage. The wedding is just one day! This is actually a girl who raised an eyebrow at me because I told her I’m considering buying a used gown for my wedding.

That is very sad. I can’t believe she wont tell her family because she is embarrassed.

wow that is sad and totally sucks b/c of the ridiculous amount of money they got a loan for and now they have to continue to pay it long after their marriage is over.

This is very sad, to spend all that money for one day on loans no less! 🙁
Running away won’t help…

Sounds like she’s got more problems then meets the eye. It’s obviously about the show on her external. To have such a grand show and not have a stable relationship to back it up…I’m not at all surprised she’s embarassed. She’ll have to face the facts (and her family) sooner or later, so as long as there is someone there to support her when she’s ready to get off her high horse, that’s what matters now I guess. Should be on your guys mind if he’s so close with her, maybe? Good luck to her.

Poor girl… I can’t imagine what she’s going through.

That’s a shame but seeing as how she has a “fling” i guess she’s managing okay–I can’t help but raise an eyebrow to that.
Just further proof you should NEVER spend beyond your means…they’ll be paying off that loan for 15 years now.

That is so sad! It’s really a shame and I could see how she would be embarrassed.
