One of my closest friends was proposed to over the holidays and they are planning to have the wedding in Costa Rica in December. Unfortunately, my girlfriend can’t go. We’ve been dating for 6 years and living together for 3. She just went back to school and I work full time and have a part time job during the weekend to help pay for rent while she focuses on school. She will will be in exams the week of my friends destination wedding.
At first, I told her I wouldn’t go without her, since we both want to go to Costa Rica, but now I’m feeling guilty that I won’t be there for my friend. I told her today that I have to go and she wasn’t happy, telling me “if that’s what I wanted to do then just do it”. What do I do? R in Kitchener
