I need your help,
On the 25th of December i took a vacation from work to go and meet my potential future wife after our families suggested that we do. I fell in love with her immediately and since then we are together in every moment we can. She lives in Tunisia with her family and i live in Dubai with mine. After i came back from the trip all happy and excited that i am about to start a relationship with my future wife, i discovered that my department has been closed for now since my boss went for national Emirati military service, and i have been out of work since last January, applying for more than 240 jobs online and nothing has paid off.
Our lovely and small engagement ceremony took place on the 8th of March and i used up all my life savings to buy her gifts and the rings and pay for my family to travel with me. And now after we set the wedding date to be on the 31st of December, i am having emotional difficulties with stress and anxiety because the date is getting closer and i still don't have the money i wanted to save to get married and start my life with her. She is such an adorable girl and i am the world to her and she stood with me in every moment i felt down after what happened to my job, she truthfully loved me for who i was, the young passionate professional who his work meant the world to him before she came into it. She lost her father when she was 7 and she was taken from her mom by her late father's family after she turned 12, her uncle who is the world to her lives away in the UK and her grandfather who was like a father figure to her passed away just 12 days after the engagement party from cancer, she is just 18.
I just want to give this little angel the wedding of her dreams, and the honeymoon of her dreams, because she has been through a lot in her life and she deserves to enjoy these special moments with the man she chose to be her first and eternal love. All i am asking from you is to help me make this dream come true, because what happened with my job made me feel like i am going to lose her somehow, even though her family, herself, and my family all are encouraging me and telling em that it will all work out, but the wedding must be done in this time because her family are traditional and they do not agree with long engagement periods. Also we both feel like we should be near each other as soon as possible because we both need each other just like any engaged love birds who are separated by distance.
The funds raised through this page will be used mainly to buy what we call in our Libyan tradition the "Goffa" which mainly consists of the wedding dress (1095$) , some clothes and personal items i must buy for the bride to be put in the bedroom closet before she becomes my bride and jewellery she will wear for the wedding (2739$) , as well as the furniture for my apartment ($3000). The funds will also be used to pay for the first 3 months rent and deposit (2465$), plane tickets and accommodation for my family to come to the wedding (3758$), and our part in the wedding venue (2100$) because we agreed with her family that we will split the cost for the wedding night. Finally the last part of the funds will go towards paying for our honeymoon (5000$) including plane tickets and pocket money.
I am currently in talks with a businessman to hire me at his company, however he is promising to give me $1340 as salary, which will be not enough at all to pay for my living expenses the next 7 months and i will never be able to save up the $20,157 i need for my wedding and my future family. i already lost 5 months os savings where i was not able to earn a single dollar, and things are looking very dark ahead of me in a time where i was supposed to feel happy and excited that i will start a family with a girl who truly loves me and sees me as the world in her eyes, the man who dreamed of every single day, the man who will make up for the lost figures in her life.
To every kind person who comes across my story, please help me marry the love of my life, please help me feel emotionally and financially secure again, please help me be happy.
With love, Suhaib & Yousra
