I'm getting really frustrated with my fiances best friend. He and his fiance are having a wedding in another country, and a week cruise afterwards. My fiance is his best man. We were made to put a $500 downpayment on the cruise rooms. The cruise will cost $4000 by the end of it. We told him last week we cannot afford it, we're out. He's been calling and trying to convince us that we need to go, that we can afford it because he and his fiance can. We have 2 small kids and a house full of animals plus us to feed and take care of. We have bills and a car that we have to put back on the road. Fiance has a surgery in Sept that will take him out of work for 3 months, then we have Christmas coming. Payment is $400 a month, excluding my kids and pets that need to be taken care of while we are gone (kennels for the dog/cat, babysitter for the rats/tanks). That's $500 a month we need to save, we live on one income.
I'm getting ticked off!! UNDERSTAND we can't afford it! I don't care about how much of a financial bind you are in and still affording it. I HAVE KIDS and they come first. GAHHH!!
