Idk who needs to hear this, but you do WHATEVER you want and call it WHATEVER you want. But let me tell you my story.
Background:We’re supposed to be getting this October, and as of right now, we’re still hoping for it. But we’ll see. Worst case, we push it back to next October and do the dang thing then. It doesn’t matter to me because the end game is still the same. This year, it is what it is.
I lost my job last week due to COVID, and my health insurance along with it. We knew it was a strong possibility, so we’ve been talking about eloping. And yes, we tried the “domestic partnership” angle, and got no where. To be upfront, it’s not what I want. I wanted to go through all the normal paces, but life happens, and financially, this was the best thing to do. So as of 6/30, I legally married my best friend.
The now: We’re not telling anyone. A few close people, but that’s it. We will have our wedding, it will not be called a vow renewal, and idc what anyone has to say about it. To hell with etiquette. Idk who needs to hear this today, but 2020 has dealt us a really terrible hand. Let’s not let anyone who thinks they know better make us feel anyone worse.
You don’t need to be on my boat, but don’t try to sink it. ❤️
