The wedding is in 36 days and FI and I are arguing all the time! Well…mostly me yelling and trying to pick fights. He doesn’t yell back, he just walks away. The last one was because the dog broke a new lamp I just got as a bridal shower gift and I blamed him for not watching the dog.
Did anyone fight with their SO this close to the wedding?? I don’t know if it’s the stress from the planning or what but I feel like this is not good when we are so close to getting married! Also, he works A LOT and different shifts and I don’t get to see him very often. Someone please tell me I’m not crazy and you have acted this way as well!

Why are you picking fights with you FI? Because he isn’t helping you with the wedding? It is so stressful leading up to the wedding but I think you need another outlet for your stress because it sounds like he is stressed enough with all the time he is working.

We didn’t fight in the lead-up (or ever really) but I have heard it’s very common! Agree you need another outlet for the stress – make sure you are taking the time to eat right, get some exercise, and enough sleep. You need to look after yourself! Getting married is a really big deal and I think it’s common for that stress to show itself in fighting.

Our arguments have increased since about February of this year…and we’re getting married in 19 days! There’s nothing to say that isn’t normal or abnormal, but it’s just how we have been dealing with the stress of the wedding. They aren’t huge, mean, ugly fights…but they are still there. It bothered both of us a lot for a while, but we started talking to each other even more than we already do when things bother us (which is a lot) and decided we might just need some more “us” time during all of this craziness. It’s easy to stress and take it out on each other, but look on the bright side, it’s a great opportunity to improve your communication skills as a couple prior to the wedding! 🙂
PS. We’re much better now that the wedding is RIGHT around the corner and it’s more excitement than stress that is governing our moods 🙂 Hang in there!
