In this brief blog post, we will provide examples of a resign letter due to marriage reason.

Resign letter due to marriage reason

A resign letter due to marriage reason is written in the case of getting married and not being able to continue with your duties due to significant lifestyle changes that are sometimes not compatible with your job.

Even though it can be a difficult decision to make, sometimes it is required. 

In some cases, reasons related to writing a resign letter due to marriage reason can include your spouse having a better job offer in another city or company, wanting to start a family, having to take care of children or aging parents leaving you overwhelmed, tired and with low energy at the end of the day. 

In addition, it could be simply that you need more time to plan your wedding or you want to focus on your marriage for a period of time.

Whatever the reason is, it is important to let your current employer know about your resignation and if possible provide them with (at least) two weeks’ notice.

This will depend on the type of work and job duties you currently have. 

However, the structure of the resignation letter needs to be clear about when you are leaving (with specific dates), the reason why getting married is prompting you to leave your job, offering help to hire and train a replacement and lastly, thanking them for the time you were working there and what you have learned.

Respected Sir/Madam,

Please be informed that, I am (Name: XYZ) and serving this reputed institution at my best since last three years. I am here by submitting my resignation as I am going to marry in next month and protraction of job will not be possible for me.

It was my privilege to be part of your team. Leaving the school/college is not that easy but I have to take the step under some circumstances as, a strong bond was developed among the teaching staff, students of many grades, administration. I am going to miss it all indeed. I want you to kindly accept my resignation from my current position, as official one month notice. I hope that you’ll arrange substitution teacher soon. I shall be beholden of this worthy experience I had, in which apart from teaching I learned as well.

Thanking you I remain.

Upper Arlington, OH 25898

Dear Ms. Flores:

Having been part of The Blair School since its inception in 2006, it is very difficult for me to hand over my resignation from my position as an English Teacher. Unfortunately, at this point in time, I do not have another option.

As per the terms in my teachers’ employment agreement, I am serving a 1-month notice of my intention to leave. That is to say, February 7th will be my last working day.

I will be getting married on 15 March 2019 and will be moving to Batavia soon after. It was already decided between my fiance and me that as soon as we get married, we will move to Batavia where he resides. Since it will be difficult for me to travel all the way to Upper Arlington on a daily basis, I have no choice but to leave my job.

Thank you for making my teaching career all the more meaningful by guiding me on every step. I will miss my colleagues and students immensely, as they have been a part of my life for many years.

Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to make this transition easier.

Dear Jennifer Lee,

I am writing to let you know that I will be leaving the company in 30 days. I have very much enjoyed working with you and am more than grateful for the career opportunities you have provided me, but circumstances dictate that it is now time for me to move on.

I will be getting married within six months, and following my marriage, I will be relocating. I think it is best I leave the position now, as I will not have time to work full-time while I am planning the wedding. I truly appreciate your understanding of this important time in my life.

If you would like assistance filling my position or if there’s anything I can do while I’m still here to ease the transition, please let me know. I will be happy to help in any way I can.

Thanks again for understanding, and for the opportunity to work with you. Do not hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,

Your Signature (hard copy letter)

“Subject: Resignation – Your Name

Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

I am writing to let you, our team, and Human Resources know that I will be leaving the company in two weeks to get married. Although my fiance and I had intended to get married six months from now, s/he has just been reassigned to a new position at a U.S. Army base in Europe. We have thus decided to move our wedding date up to a month from now so that we can celebrate our union with all of the wonderful friends and colleagues we have known here.

I will always be grateful that you hired me. It has been a privilege to contribute to our team projects, and I will miss each and every one of you.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help ease the succession to my replacement. I am happy to write descriptions of my current work responsibilities, as well as providing an outline of all project statuses.
