Countless Americans, and people all over the world, are now having to postpone or cancel major milestone events.
Meredith Ganzman was so incredibly excited to marry her fiancé Andrew, but the virus has now postponed their plans.
The couple from New York City was all packed and ready to leave for their wedding, determined to exchange vows before having to quarantine.
But now, Meredith and Andrew are locked in their apartment with their wedding plans on hold indefinitely.
This is not the first time a woman in Meredith’s family had to postpone her wedding. A few generations back, the flu of 1918 (a.k.a the Spanish flu) meant her grand-grandmother also had to put her nuptials on hold. She, too, had to figure out a new wedding date in light of a horrific virus that swept across the nation. Many are comparing the Spanish flu to the current pandemic.
