Work assignment abroad makes waves back home

Couple's wedding can wait until fiance finds a job

DEAR ABBY: My fiance and I have been engaged for two years. Our wedding is set for a year from now. I'm thinking about calling off our wedding, not because I don't love him, or because I don't want to spend the rest of my life...
