My FI Just Lost His Job....this stupid economy

Recommended Posts

I'm so sorry to hear this!!! This is the last thing you guys need to be thinking about just before your wedding. If you need someone to talk to you could probably talk to Sylvia (syl115) she had this happen to her a month ago. She was an IT specialist and they were cutting back as well, but I think she had been working for them for 20 years! Hope everything works out for you! Enjoy your wedding!

Ra'Shunda, I am so sorry to hear this. It seems to be happening everywhere. I know you didn't want this to happen before the wedding. I just experienced the same thing only it happened after I returned from my honeymoon. It was also in IT. I had been with the company for 21 years. It was a shock, but I am working it out. But don't worry, I'm sure he will find another job soon, maybe even better. I posted my resume on Monster and have been getting several calls and emails and I am not planning to return to work for a little while. So keep your chin up. It will be ok.

Thanks BDW for all of the words of encouragement. Our plan is to focus on our wedding (I'm glad we have all the money we need for it already saved up) and enjoy our honeymoon. I've even added a trip to the golf course on the honeymoon to help cheer him up. We will tackle this head on when we get back. He gets a little severance package that will last until Jan '09 so we're hoping that he'll get his dream job next.

Awww, I'm sorry to hear about that! This economy is really relentless right now. I keep hoping things are going to turn around but bad news seems to be everywhere sad.gif

 

Sounds like you guys have a great plan of enjoying the wedding and honeymoon and worrying about it when you get home. You don't want all of your memories of this happy time to be clouded with worry.

 

Hugs!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
