My FI says "he is feeling trapped"...

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I don't know where to post this, so I thought this was a good place, since I don't want to make a whole thread about it.

 

FI and I are having some major issues right now...like, he's feeling "trapped" (cold feet?) and I'm thinking of leaving (don't want to be here if he's only here cause he's "trapped").

 

Anyone go through anything similar? Everyone seems so soooo happy and in love...makes me wonder about us...

Brian and I went through this... except I was the one feeling trapped and with cold feet. Truth be told, I've never been big on the idea of marriage and it scared the heck out of me. Happiness definitely takes work with us... every relationship requires work and anyone who tells you otherwise is full of lies.

We actually ended up taking time away from each other and our relationship while we were engaged because it got so bad.

I'm sorry you guys are having a rough time right now.

I think maybe this does derserve it's own thread! let me know if you want me to move these posts and create one.

now, as for the issue - is this new 'stuff' or have you had issues like this in th epast? everyone goes through issues and problems, my philosphy has always been 'it's how you handle the bad times' if your FI feels trapped now, what happens if you have a sick dog? lose your job? your home? etc? have you ever been through really hard times together in the past?

At least I know I'm not the only one. It still sucks though. We're going to a friends this weekend, but then I was thinking of heading out for a bit...without him...but then that leaves him with the two dogs.

I'm also paranoid because it's more than just a wedding...people have already put down a lot of money to see us get married...

Ok...start a new thread LOL

He had a nervous breakdown last year...I got him through it. I lost my job in Oct...we got through it. The issues are old...and it's a lot of things about me that aren't new and will always be. I'm not a neat freak. Our house will always be "lived" in. When we have company we clean it top to bottom...between company, it can get a bit messy (it's both of us, not just me)...that is one of his biggest issues - he doesn't know if he can live like that.

we are 16 days away from our legal day, and both bugging out every couple of days. we fight and he says he's having doubts, but i know he doesnt really mean it. then like an hour later he is kissing & hugging me so i KNOW he didnt mean it. i think sometimes the wedding stress just gets the better of us. but i think this is fairly common & normal. i dont have many friends who are married that DIDNT go through what we're experiencing with the little tiffs all the time before the wedding.

 

on the other hand, i'm not sure feeling "trapped" and thinking about leaving your FI are common & normal. is this an ongoing issue you've had, or is it something just recent that's come up?

This is maybe the second time in our almost 4 years together that I have seriously considered leaving. Not so much because I want to not be here, but because I don't want to be with someone because they feel traped and like they can't leave.

Wow Dez... I am sorry you are having a rough time.

 

I will stick my neck out there and say - don't leave.

 

Really, what you need to do is talk it out, and stop talking about the wedding - go on a date, have dinner, make a picnic in your living room, do what ever your budget will allow.

 

But the rule is.. NO WEDDING TALK!

 

I think that cold feet is a function of the constant discussion of the wedding, the guests, the costs, the this and that - but if you get a chance to get back to the two of you...

 

You'll remember why you fell in love in the first place.

 

Give it a chance.

He tells me that the only thing I talk about is this wedding and that I'm obsessed with it. Which is COMPLETELY untrue! So now, we have that fight Tuesday and yesterday he gives me the card of someone to make tee shirts for the wedding and he's asking me if I've priced things and if the prices are good.

 

Now, the LAST thing I want to talk about with him is ANYTHING related to the wedding.

why does he feel trapped? it has to be something other than the cleanliness issue he has.

 

my FI is a neat freak, but he accepts that i am not. yes, we get into arguments sometimes when i dont pick up after myself or clean something half-assed, but he would never say he felt trapped or couldnt live with me for the rest of his life because of that, KWIM?

 

so what are his other issues that are causing him to feel trapped? and are they the same as last time you considered leaving?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
