Bring Your Problem To Aunt Rhoda
My fiance and I have been together for almost three years and during that time we have constantly endured the problem of me talking to another guy. I feel like there always has to be someone waiting, just in case this relationship doesn't work out. I love my fiance and I don't mean for him to feel like this. We have our wedding coming in May and our families clash because we come from two different ways of life. Money is also a big issue with us because his job security hasn't always been stable. Aunt, I love him. I feel so lost in all this, like I'm being torn in a million different directions and don't know what to do. I would like your advice. I know I need to fix my problem but it goes a lot deeper than what I've written.
Aunt Rhoda's Advice:
Marrying the guy isn't going to make those problems go away. You are hoping that sacred vow, that commitment is going to fix everything...but it won't. I would suggest you do the heavy lifting and hard work now; cancel the wedding and plan for a healthier future so you don't have a stack of divorce papers in your file cabinet like I do. Don't worry about the family clashing, don't worry about what people will say or the deposits you will lose. Do not make a sacred covenant when you have all these issues to deal with first. That's the advice I wish I had taken at your age. email@example.com
