Bryan and Jacqueline have been married for almost a year. They only took a quick honeymoon weekend and they’ve been saving for a trip to Europe before they have kids. Bryan’s best friend, Shane, is getting married in September and has asked Bryan to be his best man…in Hawaii. If they go to Hawaii for the wedding, it will completely drain the money they’ve been saving for their trip to Europe. Bryan says they have to make the trip for the wedding because Shane is his best friend and was the best man in their wedding. He feels like it would be a slap in the face to Shane if they say they can’t afford to go to the wedding and then turn around and go to Europe. Jacqueline understands Bryan feels like they need to go to the wedding, but she also knows that they will never go to Europe if they don’t go soon. She doesn’t want to wait to start a family and doesn’t think their life plans should have to change because Shane is getting married.


What should they do? Go to Hawaii for a wedding or Europe for themselves?
