Okay so here is the long and short of the situation… My Fiance is in the coast guard and as a way to make more money (we are REALLY broke right now because I can’t find a job) we we’re going to do a Justice of the Peace ceremony because he will be able to make an extra $200/ month for being married and we could combine bills saving over $200 a month on auto insurance alone. Here’s the thing… every time we go to do it something happens to where it doesn’t work out. I am really starting to think it is a bad omen or something, like we should just wait for the actual wedding date and just suck it up until then. My step mom is really against getting married before the big day (see saying “I do” before the “big day”) and it seems like the universe is agreeing!
We tried to get married last Wednesday on a lark and couldn’t because we could only find one person to be a witness at the ceremony. Then we had the witnesses lined out on Thursday and went to the courthouse and found that they couldn’t marry us due to the fact that there was a “pressing legal matter” after they had already told us there was no need to call. So we were going to do it today and low and behold Fiance comes home and tells me we can’t get married until next week due to the fact that he failed to turn in the appropriate paperwork and needs to be counseled by his chief to see if he is really ready. Anyways, I just blew UP. I was so excited and the freaking coast guard ruins everything. His cousin even booked a hotel room this Friday as a mini “honeymoon” at Virginia beach. Now I don’t want to do that at all… what is the point of having a honey moon if you aren’t even married :/
Then after working an 80 hour shift he came home for an hour and had to go back to work until 1 and then he told me he has to go in for 4-5 hours tomorrow… and then the day after that he is working a 48 hour straight shift. I am seriously about to lose my shit here… oh and I feel really bad because his aunt just died last night and I seriously blew a gasket at him :/
Baaaaaaaaaaaah okay that is all. Rant over.
