Those are excellent points, and we did discuss them. Everyone lives in areas that have readily available testing, and the only area I worried about was the area my fiance and I, and his most immediate family, live in, but even our testing region has gotten results turnaround times to 2-3 days.

It’s definitely not the worst outcome! And I was ready to name names to CNN if any of them lied about getting tested and infected others, so now they’re spared. Read more

I made that exact point. At least they’re principled enough about their conspiracy theories to not lie about getting a test.

Oh, that was always the plan, even pre-COVID. We had originally planned for a small wedding followed by a blow-out bash. The bash got postponed a year, and then the wedding was half what we had planned for. With his family bowing out, it’s about 1/3 what we had planned for. Read more

Thank you for this perspective. I know I’m struggling a lot more than he is. Honestly, if he were actually estranged, I wouldn’t be bothered as much because I get it. Read more

“Let it go” is really excellent advice that I’ve always struggled with, haha. I’m in between therapists at the moment, but I’ll have to address that when I get a new one. Read more

Somehow he escaped all the conspiracy theory thinking he grew up with...and he kind of expected this response from his family. Luckily, my family loves him. I may be projecting more of my feelings onto him simply because we’ve scaled back so much on an already small affair.

Thank you! We have gone back and forth on whether to cancel, but thought we could make it happen safely. Read more

My best friend and her husband have been both working from home (from their high-paying tech jobs) with their toddler child, and I can only imagine how hard it’s been. Read more

My fiance are getting married on 10/10, and we have second guessed ourselves the whole time. And we’re still ready to cancel if we need to. We’ll get married on that date, just without everyone. Read more

The university in the town I work had a reduced student body on campus for one week before an outbreak forced them to tell all students living on campus to GTFO. Read more

My fiance used to be really good about cooking for the two of us and me really good about eating what he cooked...but at some point, that all fell apart, esp. since I’m the pickier of the two. Read more

She’s pregnant, so she’s trying to minimize her whole family’s exposure. And someone would still have to watch him, so either my MOH or my officiant would still be out of action to keep tabs in a socially distanced way Read more

We had another option in mind, but I'm pretty sure she's going to say no due to travel and age putting her and her husband at an elevated risk. I have another family member who I think will do it...but it fucking sucks to have to go through three layers of people to get a yes
