Man so many harsh remarks.

First the damage looks minor. Paint and move on. Repaint of the front fascia should be under $500.00 to do right. Might even be able to blend but with metallic paint a full cover respray will most likely be required to make it right. (A good painter will be able to make that determination.)

Your fiance not telling you would be a bigger concern to me.

I would bet she did not tell you because she knows how much you love your car. I hope you did not freak on her and if you did you should tell her that you over reacted.

If this person is the person you want to be with forever you want them to feel like they can tell you anything. If she feels that you will freak every time she gives you bad news your marriage could have some seriously bad secrets. Ones that could end it.

So just talk to her about it and make sure she knows it is alright to f@#K up as long as she tells you. We all make mistakes but as a married couple secrets are not acceptable.

BTW This is coming from a guy that has been married 13 years and had a similar thing happen.

It doesn't matter why she didn't tell him. The fact is that she didn't. If She's afraid to tell him over small things like a fender bender(although not small to me, I would have gone ape shit) then what about things like running up huge credit card debit without telling him or something worse. Trust is key in marriage and this simple act would throw up a flag to me. If she really loved and trusted the OP then she would have taken her lumps and owned up to what she did. Also She should be paying to fix the car not the OP.

I wish I could just live with the scratch but its just too noticiable, this is going to hurt my mod money for a few months.
might as well get the zl1 front bumper. lol

The her not telling you part is the bigger issue, though there could have been reasons why (she forgot, like she said she didnt think it was anything big enough to even be noticeable, etc) but regardless i personally believe you shouldn't be mad. , its fixable, so why make a big issue out of it. My girlfriend last year scrapped my RS rims leaving visible marks. She jumped out and ran into the back seat when it happened lol, it was a really funny moment. , it happens, put it behind you.

No. It's not that she forgot about it, she admitted "I thought it was not a big deal" - I think that's a lie. If it wasn't such a big deal, why not confess?

I agree. Mistakes happen, but the question is: is she willing to do something about it? Honesty is a cornerstone of marriage, and this is a good time for her to learn this message.

If she is not willing to learn from this, this is a BIG BIG sign that bad things are going to happen in your marriage. Refusal to be honest is the worst thing for a marriage.

I wouldn't be angry at her for damaging the car, I would be disappointed that she didn't respect me enough to tell me what happened to my car.
This. Learn from people who are married or who have been married.

Cut her some slack, she simply forgot. Is she cute? That makes a big difference.

Fixing the car is the easiest part of this, I would SERIOUSLY reconsider marrying this woman, If she wouldn't tell you about a stupid car bump, imagine what will be withheld in the future as life gets more serious for both of you......

When you get married things are going to happen all the time that you have no control over. (Things that may not normally happen if you are alone and single).

I would not bother to get your car fixed. But it's up to you
