I got married and lost my streak.

I wish Duolingo had a vacation mode so you wouldn't lose your "streak" when you absolutely cannot go online. I just got married, only missed one day of work and lost my streak in Duolingo. Oh, well. I still think it was worth it getting married, haha!

I once posted that someone who was going on vacation to the country of the language he was learning had the best reason ever to lose a streak. But I now think yours is better than that! Congratulations (and have a "streak freeze" on me in case you take a honeymoon weekend).

actually you can buy a day off at the store but it has to be a day prior

No, it doesn't have to be a day prior. The text describing the Streak Freeze in the Lingot Store doesn't make it clear, but you can buy a streak freeze at any time, and it just sits there unused until you miss a day!

I lost my first 90+ day streak because I didn't realize that a Streak Freeze works this way, so I hadn't bought one.

Congrats on getting married ("Mozzle Tof" if you're Jewish.....please excuse the spelling as I have no idea how to spell this sentiment!). You can buy a Streak Freeze from the Lingot Store which will freeze your streak if you miss a day. It costs 10 Lingots and you have to buy it in advance. Have a Lingot to celebrate!

I lost my streak when I went on my honeymoon. I got to speak the Swedish I learned on Duolingo, though!

I had a similar issue. I had a 150 day streak then I had to go to a family reunion for a week and I had no internet. Congratulations on your wedding by the way!

I lost internet connection for a few hours ended my 40 day streak, from day one. Started a new streak @day 12 now. 19 years of marriage for me, best of luck

Wow, I have heard some wacky excuses for losing your streak, but getting married! That is the best excuse I have heard for not getting married.

"Sorry darling, the wedding is off, I simply cannot lose my streak.

This is such a cute story, and the comments following about maybe not having the wedding/honeymoon because you may lose your streak, really made me laugh :)

In all honesty I probably would've cancelled the wedding to maintain my streak.

Also, there's a "Streak Freeze" store item.
