Advice Needed....Get Married Now or Later.....????

Recommended Posts

If it's for financial reasons,  I get it.  Other than that, why not wait one more year.  Some people won't care and some people will...it just depends on how you feel waiting a full year until the ceremony and reception.

It is for financial reasons actually. And since my first post we have further discussed it and we may wait until toward the end of the year. But I will keep you all updated.cheesy.gif

Do you guys not have common-law there?  We've been together 9 years and living together for 6 so for tax purposes we're considered married.  Maybe you could ask a few of your guests what they'd think of the idea.  A few years ago my cousin and his wife had a town hall wedding with the plan that they'd have a big wedding a year later and a lot of people felt 'well what's the point, you've already been married a year'

No Lyndsay_h we do not have common law marriage in Virginia- so that would not work. Believe me we have already considered this!cheesy.gif We have talked to a few of our guests and they have stated that they would still come- guess they love us that much!

Ohh that seems so strange!  I got screwed when we filed a joint tax return...Here the gov't gives $ quarterly to people who don't make a lot but FI makes way more than me and they decided I'm no longer poor and wanted the money back :P

But if it makes things easier for you guys and the guests don't mind then why not!

Lyndsay H! The same thing happened to me. I was so sad when they wanted the money back- plus interest. It was something my accountant didn't flag when we compared joint versus single filing. Oh well.

No moment like today.  Get married and dont tell anyone, let them be surprised at your "vow renual" the following year!

 

In the end it is really about you and your H2B.

 

Good luck deciding

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
