    Marriage location
    Hello, I moved from my country to study, here I met my current partner, we now live together and have a baby. We recently started talking about getting married (we don't have the money for it now, but he will propose when we do). Now my problem is: WHERE shall we get married? Obviously all his family and friends live here but all mine are back in my country. I can't get married without my family and friends but I would feel bad to ask them to come over and pay for travel and hotel (we live in a very expensive city) also cause I have a very big family while he's close basically only to his brother and sister. So maybe we could go to my country instead? But still I don't feel like asking his family to pay for flight and hotel. I would love to pay for my family or his to come but as I said we hardly have the money for the wedding. What shall we do? Thanks! Xx

    If you wait for the money to "marry" you will almost never get married and are expecting too much of a large fancy wedding. You just get married, if you are already living together and have a baby. Each day you keep living together is less reason to get a legal marriage.

    You have one where you are at, and then have a blessing (second service) back in the other country for the other family.

    Guests pay their own way. He only has two; you have many. Go to your country.
    But basically this is something the couple works out together. Strangers online can't possibly know the hundreds of details.

    You talk it out with each other and come to a reasonable compromise. May as well get accustomed to compromising now, that's what marriage and parenting is all about.
