I am from a small town in Georgia and grew up with both parents strung out on drugs and alcohol. My dad was abusive to my mum and ended up cheating on her and I was sent to live with my grandmother on my dad's side. She was also very abusive and so I ended up staying with various relatives until my grandparents on my mum's side took me in. Until they did my life was going wayward but they helped get me back on the straight and narrow and I ended up making very good grades obtaining a scholarship into one of the South’s prestigious female colleges.
After completing my four year degree I got accepted into medical school and met a gentleman from a very well to do family. We got married and a couple of years into it I found out he was doing drugs and the relationship became very abusive. His parents and family put me down and blamed me for it and I felt like I was reliving my childhood and decided that wasn't what I wanted for my life. I got out and I decided to be single for a while since what I thought was going to be a happy ever after left a sour taste in my mouth. Fast forward 8 years later and I am in my third year of Medical school after having completed my PhD in Biomedical sciences.
I recently met the man of my dreams who treats me like a queen and he has thought me what it means to love and be loved again. Because of all the pain I have been through and because I did not get to experience it the first time, I am looking to have a dream/fairy tale wedding (at least in my eyes) I say a dream wedding not because I want only my close family and friends and I want it to be very intimate and beautiful. Unfortunately because I am a student and I have taken up loans to help pay for my PhD and medical school and my fiancé is helping me out, neither of us can afford it (He is working but is also about to go back to school for his PhD). Of course no one in our family is going to be able to help either. My fiancé has happened to save money and he used some of it to buy the engagement ring and is hoping we can get our first place once we get married/ I am asking if anyone out there can help make my dream come true. I know this is not conventional and may come across as vain and if sounds like it you, I understand.
I am/was hoping that because of all the pain I have experienced growing up that someone out there could help make my day and help me have a fresh start with the love of my life, by having a beautiful wedding and starting a family. I have a feeling we will both be very successful in the future and would even love to pay back once I get out of school and start working. Any little help is appreciated.
