One of the founders of The Woke Salaryman was planning to get married on 6 June 2020.
But with the COVID-19 outbreak and current circuit breaker measures, it seems unlikely that any kind of event would be allowed to happen.
Eventually, he decided to postpone his wedding.
But most importantly, it was okay to do so because of a few key decisions he made with his partner.
Here’s what happened.
1) Kept the Wedding Budget Modest
FYI: we did the math before and worked out that an average wedding would cost at least $27,000.
2) Ensured They Had Enough Savings to Cover Potential Loss
3) Having a Wedding Now Is Irresponsible
