Could you compromise by having a somewhat traditional wedding on a short timeline, like maybe two months? You have already been living together for 8 months and haven’t gotten in trouble with his employer, what’s another two?

You can plan a simple, intimate but beautiful & meaningful wedding on a short timeline – I know some bees have! You could probably find availability in a church this summer if you got married on a Friday, so that way you have your religious ceremony.

Why do you say >>We are ready fro marrage (we think)<< ? That really stands out to me as an indication that maybe you should wait. 

But if that was just something you typed with no meaning behind it, a simple with only your nearest and dearest would be great, and you two can have a bigger celebration and a larger party later, if that’s what you want. You can also have a "traditional" wedding very quickly — just speak with your religious leader about it.

Otherwise, an engagement period is a good time to continue to grow in your relationship.

Great! It sounds like you’ve figured it out.

If you were still undecided, I was going to vote for the courthouse ceremony now, religious ceremony later. They’re two different types of ceremonies, both of which join you together in a deep and meaningful way, and neither should be considered a waste of money! We’re considering doing the same thing at the moment… also undecided.
