would you go?
(this is a question I found online in another group, what are your thoughts? mine in the comments)
I have a dilemma...One of my best friends announced her engagement and within one week she has planned the wedding that will take place in four months.
The 2 hour cocktail celebration is nearly 3,000 miles away and will cost our family roughly $2,500-3,000 to attend.
My milestone birthday is the week before her event and we planned to do something for that time. We also have previously scheduled to be with our family that we haven’t seen in 2 years, the week after her event.
Hubby doesn’t want to go because he said it wasn’t part of our plan or budget, and that the event is very short for that type of travel commitment.
Should we go and suck it up in order to support our friend, even though we have the other concerns? Our only child is also listed as a beneficiary in the estate of this friend. Thoughts?
