    So we are leaving for Mexico in 15 days and guess what....my fiance lost his job today, which caught us totally off guard because he was actually up for a decent raise this year!!! During his performance feedback (where he thought he was going to get a raise) they said that they were eliminating his position & if he wanted to he could head home today. Apparently, they are having to downsize his department (he's an IT analyst) and since he's only been with the company for 13 months...he got the boot...along with most of the other people who started around the same time he did.

    This is definitely not how I thought my day was going to go and I could do without the additional stress.

              Oh I'm so sorry. You don't need to be worrying about this a few weeks before your wedding. I'll say a prayer that something comes up quick for him.

                  I'm sorry to here. God might be preparing your FI for something even better. My FI (he's also in IT) and I both went through job struggles this year and we both landed on our feet and in jobs we love. Try to stay positive and remember sometimes we can't see the blessing because of the storm.

                    I'm so sorry that you and your FI are having to go through this right now... having friends that work(ed) on Wall Street, I've seen way too much of this recently. I'm sure he'll pick himself up and be back to work in no time. Who knows.... this could be a blessing in disguise. Chin up!
