My FI said he doesn't want to get married....and our wedding is in less than 3 months

Recommended Posts

I'm so sorry for you. You must be so confused. I think the most important thing is for you to take care of yourself. I think it's good if you get some time to evaluate what you want and what your expectations are. Best wishes to you. I hope it all works out.

I am so sorry you have to go through this. I agree with everyone, he is probably just stressed. Although, it isnt an excuse for him to do this to you....or your kids.

 

He better start talking soon! Good luck. Remember we are all here for you.

It's weird that all of this is coming up right now - after he's lost his job, and 10 years of being together (and 2 kids), with the wedding only 3 months away. The fact that he seems to just want to "drop" this news on you, but not actually talk about it, seems as if he really can't deal with what he just told you.

 

I agree, take the kids and go away for a few days. Give him time to process & digest. My guess is that somewhere inside, is the little "man voice" that says if he can't provide for you, he shouldn't be moving forward. (No matter how much men evolve, they always have this little voice inside them that mostly "hides" during everyday life. And a job loss usually stirs this voice up.)

 

If he seems to be backing off communication, then I'd say take it slow... no matter how hard it is, try to get him talking about things that might be less "emotional"... like maybe look at his news from the perspective of: "well, we need to talk about how we're going to cancel the wedding"... maybe it would be easier for him to begin talking when the subject is more 'matter of fact', and could then ease into what really needs to be discussed.

 

I'm sorry you're going through this... and I hope it works out the best way for everyone involved....

I can't believe this! I'm so sorry that you are dealing with this right now. I would just say to give him some space and time. I think he will eventually come around and want to talk it over with you. The more you force him to talk the less likely he will be inclined to. Just let him get through whatever is holding him back. Stay strong.

You do need to talk but I have to say I wouldn't be the one leaving. I'd be saying ok if thats what you want leave i need somewhere safe for the kids and boot his ass out until he comes to his senses.

 

This kind of happened with my last marriage and I stupidly left when I wish I hadn't. If he wants to bail make him go then it'll hit him right between the eyes otherwise he's going to be saying yeah she'll be back.

 

It'll work out but stay strong you have to show you aren't giving up without a fight xx smile03.gif

Oh geez, I'm so sorry. I definitely think he needs time away to deal with what's really going on. Guys are different from us. We want to talk, and they don't wanna talk until they're almost at the very bottom, KWIM? I definitely think some time apart is in order. Either way - let him have the chance to miss you and to be left alone with his own thoughts, give him a chance to realize what life without you and the kids would be like...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
