How are you doing? I read some of your posts and don't know what other advice I can add other than a lot of the good advice that has been mentioned on the board. But I agree, don't rush into any wedding plans till things get better. You shouldn't have to shoulder all the financial responsiblity in this relationship. My fiance Kevin and I have separate checking accts, I pay the utilities, he pays the house payment, I pay the house insurance and taxes, and we split the cable down the middle, along with groceries. That's what works for us. Maybe not what work well for everyone but it does for us ok.
Anyway, just wanted to drop a note and let you know I'm thinking of you. (been away from the computer a few days, have had so much going on)
And gulp, nope, didn't stop smoking yet, so I've been hiding from the stop smoking board till I can get myself to quit.
Anyway, I'd suggest maybe put the wedding plans on hold till financially he is more supportive. You're going wear yourself out girl, from working so much and you need some "Kelly" time as well!
