While requesting time off work can be tricky (do I have enough vacation days? What if I have a better reason to want time off later? What if my boss says no?) it goes without saying that there are some events that should get you time off work no matter what your employment is. Getting married is definitely one of them — after all, it's not something you would fake, and for most of us, it only happens once!
The Internet was appropriately shocked when one nurse tweeted that she had been denied time off for that very reason.
