    Honestly, I would love to elope. Not for financial reasons either, I would just love to do it him and I, rather it being this big spectacle…

    I wouldn’t do it for the reasons your friends did, but if one of my parents were sick – or if someone in my FI’s family was sick, I would get married ASAP.  My soon-to-be SIL lost both her parents last year – within 6 months of one another.  If that were my case (both were pretty sick and not old, either), I would’ve gotten married so that both of my parents could share my day with me – even if that meant my Mom, Dad, Fiance, and I were there.  Everyone else could attend the regularly scheduled date. 

    On another note – I have a friend that was going to marry her Boyfriend or Best Friend that she bought a house with for him to get benefits…granted, they were not engaged – but they did end up breaking up 2 months after the ‘married for benefits’ discussion was had.

    Sure, why not? They’re getting married anyway in a year and if there’s some pressing concern and getting married ASAP would alleviate stress, worry and financial burden why not>
