This is both of our second marriages. We meet on match.com. Since Angie and I meet we have been inseparable. We go everywhere together when we are not at work. I knew from the time I met her in Starbucks she was the one. We both fell head over heels in love for each other. 15 months after we met in person we got married on May the 4th, 2019. May the fourth be with you!
We had a simple ceremony, we only had 30 wedding guest. We spent around three thousand for the wedding chapel, reception hall, catering, flowers, wedding cake, wedding DJ and reverend, all the wedding gifts and a honeymoon Carnival cruise. The small afternoon wedding was the greatest day of our lives. At the reception we handed out toy light sabers to guest. We had a great time after the wedding also on our cruise. We are still so happy, but after we got back the bills didn’t forget about us.
After the wedding our bills seem to have grown. We are paying off medical bills. Angie broke her ankle a few years ago in a mud run. She still has trouble with her ankle and is continuing getting medical care. The kids seem to have outgrown all of their clothes overnight. Getting the kid’s new clothes, feeding a family, cutting unnecessary expense where we can. Just juggling everyday expenses hard, we cut cable because it’s too expensive. The credit card balance is higher than we like. We are just keeping up but just barely. We are just trying to keep our heads above water. Any donation amount would help. We would ideally like to have the whole wedding donated for, $3,000. In reality any amount would help.
I have a plan to get out of debt and stay ahead. Once one debt gets paid off, I’m going to use that money to pay off another debt. For example let’s say I pay off a car. I’m going to use that car payment on an additional loan or credit cards. Then when I get an additional loan paid off I’m going to use that amount plus the car payment to pay off more items. It’s getting the ball rolling that is hard. I would like help getting the ball rolling. My plan is to get all debt paid off then put money back for a nest egg and college funds. It’s hard with every day expense and credit card interest piling up daily.
