To marry or to mortgage is the question I ask myself every single day!
We have been together 10 years next year and have two children together. We either need to marry or mortgage!
Since visiting a wedding fair a few weeks ago I have a better idea of how much it costs to marry! The place I want to get married is perfect and holds a bit of family history too. I could picture every single moment of the day there. From getting ready before hand to the photo opportunities in the grounds. It is simply everything I want from my one special day! The wedding wouldn’t be until 2018 so I guess we could pay different things off every month. The biggest expense will be the venue and that is not something I’m willing to scrape on. I just worry that if we marry first, it will take us even longer to save for a mortgage.
With the way house prices are at the moment it would take us years just to save for a deposit as it is. I’m not even sure we could afford to buy in the area we currently live. We live in a little village and I absolutely love it here. The school is good, we have lovely neighbours and both our parents are only a short drive away. It is definitely a place I would like my children to grow up. I don’t want to buy in an area I’m not happy with just for the sake of buying. I would rather wait until we can afford to buy in this area – if that ever happens!
So if anyone knows where the money tree at, let me know!
What matters most to you? Marriage or a mortgage?
