In this brief blog post, we will provide examples of a resignation letter due to relocation after marriage.

Resignation letter due to relocation after marriage

A simple resignation letter due to relocation after marriage 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 simple resignation letter for relocation after marriage 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.

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.

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 Name”

Thank you once again for providing me the chance to work under your benign supremacy.”
