I am going to be a year from graduating nursing school when we get married too. 🙂 Of course after his numerous major changes, Fiance is going to be 2.5 years from graduation so he can’t complain too much. I know it is going to be harder because we are extra broke and stressed but I decided it was worth it to go ahead and be married. Are you going for LVN, ASN, BSN? I’m a BSN-RN student right now. It’s a beast but totally going to be worth it when I’m a real nurse!

Hi I didn’t get married during my school, will do this December, when I already graduated for like 2 years… but I don’t think it will make any difference. Marriage will just bond you two more closely, right? Besides, one semester later is not that much different, just couple of months more, time flies fast~~ It will be extremely busy near graduation, I think it is great that you will get married before that busy time, and get more support from HIM 🙂 

One of my classmates did exactly the same thing, she got married half year before graduation, and had a kid half year later after graduation. 

you still have plenty of time to plan your wedding next May, don’t let the stupid classes disturb your mood, your love is love, your life is your life, just plan it ahead, and embrace all the good days in the future:) Best of luck!

Why in the world would you being in school upset his parents???

We got married in October and I graduated in May of the following year. Within that time, we also spent a ton of time finding and buting a house, and then moved in right after I took exams. I would say, try to carve out at least a couple of hours a week that you devote to just him and your relationship. And try not to always go to him to complain and let off steam, leave that for your school friends

Yes, I will be going back to school once we are married.  I don’t have enough money to pay for everything while wedding planning.  Neither do I have the time.  Don’t want the stress either. Good luck!

I’m not going to be a nurse, but I’m still in college (for my Bachelor’s) and DH and I got married this past June. Ideally I would have liked to have graduated before the wedding, but with working full time it was impossible so I’m graduating this spring. DH is also still in college, but he gets to graduate this December. And the semester before our wedding I had to take only 3 classes because wedding planning/DIY projects took over my life.

We both went back to school this year and got married in the summer, so we’re both old married farts in school. it’s not so bad!

While I’m not in school, DH just started his freshmen year of school almost two years into our marriage.  So, considering he has 3 1/2 more years of undergrad, 1-2 years for masters, and who knows how long if he choose to get his PhD….we’ll be well past the newly wed stage and dang near into my mid 30s when the hubs is finally done w/ school.

Depends on the age. I’m a “mature” student. My version of “mature” is older than nearly all of my classmates.

… at 27 years young.

I won’t be graduating until Oct. 2013.  We’re getting married July 2012.  I’ll probably also be going to get my Masters, too, so I might not be totally done with school til 2015/16.

I got married during my third year of law school, so I was still a student for the first month and a half or so of our marriage (and then I was studying for the bar for the next two and a half months, which is basically like being in school full-time?). It worked really well for us, because it gave us a little bit of time to adjust to one change (being married) before we adjusted to bigger changes (both working full-time instead of one/both of us in school).

I know the feeling.  I decided to go to nursing school after not finding a job in my major for 2 years.  At that point, I was only 5 months away from getting married.  I ended up starting school one week before my wedding.  Needless to say, it became a little bit stressful.  However, everything has worked out and my husband is very supportive of my decision.  Unfortunately, he also wants kids soon and I said I really don’t think it’s a good idea until after I have graduated.  I also still have to apply to a nursing program (I haven’t yet, due to fulfillinng pre-requisites), so my tentative graduation date is up in the air. For now, he seems understanding, but likes to hint at and joke about me getting pregnant pretty often.  I just hope he doesn’t resent me for not wanting to have kids right away!

Good luck!

We graduated within 6 mo of each other with bachelors’, got married 6 mo later, and now I’m applying to go back to school – whoo!

We’re actually excited about it though, I’m enthusiastic about getting my PhD and he wants to move, and we already wanted to put off kids for like 10 years ha!
