getting married monday

October 13th, 2006 at 10:18 pm

well people, the big day is Monday. after looking at our finances, and realizing that we are so strapped, which things are a lot better now than they were when i first came here(A LOT BETTER!), we decided to get married early due to the fact that my fiance's work does not offer insurance.... i just got insurance at my new job.
we pay $200/month for her insurance, and it is just killing us(along with her $300/month car payment). all of the overtime i am working is BARELY covering the insurance(our finaces are right on with my regular time at work, but the overtime was paying just enough to cover the insurance). all of a sudden, work is getting slower and no overtime is available, therefore putting us way below our financial needs.
my insurance is $70/month for me, and $70/month for her. so we will be going from $270 to $140/month, which will give us a lot of breathing room.
of course, this is not ideal, and we are keeping it from a lot of people to not take it away from our wedding in june, but it is either that, or reducing her coverage, and if something does happen, then we will owe a lot more, or her not having coverage at all, either of which is not an option.
i think this is the smartest thing we could do, and the lady at the courthouse says she sees it all the time. we are not having it published until june, and like i said, parents and close families are going to be notified, that is all.
keep us in your thoughts and prayers on monday!

    Good luck!

    I had a friend get married in August, she wanted to do it the "right" way .. they planned a HUGE wedding with all of their friends and family the following March.

    No one knew but about three people that they were already officially married. She didn't break the news until this past August when she accidentally let it slip that it was their first anniversary.

    There is something really sweet about being just the two of you ... no matter what the reasons. You'll still be sharing your committment with your family and friends in June ... my friend loved the way she did it.

    Congratulations! Best wishes for a long and happy life together!

    My YD got married July 4, 2006 with 13 days notice. They were going to go to the Courthouse, but we managed to pull off a real wedding in 13 days! We were able to cancel YD's insurance immediately as she was covered the day she married!

    We did similarly. For us, it was a matter of wishing to keep separate the religious and the state representation. I do not even know what the date of our civil ceremony was.
