Like you said-at least you are not in the wedding planning stage-that would have been horrible!!
I will keep my fingers crossed for you! It sounds like your husband is very good at what he does...hopefully he doesn't have a problem finding another job....

God I hope the economy turns around SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SunBride - That sucks but think positive things sometimes happen for a reason.
Hope everything works out for you good luck.

KMAY11 - We are in the same boat both FI and I work in the oil and gas industry.
FI was let know at the beginning of the month there would be lay-offs, well yesterday he came home with good and bad news, his job was safe but his friend was let go.
I got an e-mail a few days ago warning that the company I work for will be doing some lay-offs so now I am waiting to here the news.
Hope everything works out for you, good luck.

I'm so sorry for everyone who has been affected recently! It sucks! My husband was laid off this summer (3 months after we bought our house) and I know how hard it is. My husband had a hard time pulling his ego out of the trash, but he's finally working again and has restarted school. Luckily I'm the major bread winner, but my DH wasn't doing too shabby before. We're scraping by these days, and hoping that 2009 will bring some better financial times.

 

I wish you all the best of luck!

well if it makes you feel any better I was let go 2 months ago and FH was just laid off last week. Neither of us has a job and we're 4 months aways from our wedding. lol

 

All roads lead to success though, even the detours.

LOLLL no need, I know how it feels. It sucks but I believe everything happens for a reason.

We're actally bonding and growing stronger now as a couple. So this could be a great thing for the both of you too!

Wow that's even worse than our situation. My fiancé got laid off last week (permanently): he was a software developer for the real estate industry. Seeing as real estate in Toronto isn't doing too hot right now, it was not unexpected, but still a shock. At least Nathan knows there is no chance but I have to say his ego has taken a serious blow :-( He was also the best in his company and had been with them 8 years so was getting paid quite well. All the new hires were working for 1/2 his salary, so I think this is one of the main reasons they decided to let go of Nathan... He's spent the last week while I'm at work holed up in the basement and playing our PS3. We're trying to be optimistic since I am hoping to get a job in Ottawa and he'd been talking about going back to school anyways... Good luck to you and if you need to chat just PM me!!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
