- Wedding: December 2013
I’ve been planning a wedding / engaged for seven months now, and our wedding is in five months. I feel like we’ve been in more agruments and shed more tears in the past seven months than ever before. It seems like we’re always fighting. I get upset because I’m stressed out all the time and I feel like he’s not pulling his weight to help plan the wedding. And the whole reality that we’re in this forever is bringing out all these hard conversations about the future and realities of how different our families and upbringings are. We fight about money sometimes. I disagree with the way his parents are acting in regards to the wedding. They are being really controlling and making executive decisions without asking me about anyting they’re paying for. And my fiance seems to always side with them even though he claims he’s being “neutral.” And overall, I think we’re just being more ugly and brutal to eachother when we fight because we are engaged and are more vulnerable. When we’re not angry and fighting, we’re happy. And I hope this is just a phase we’re going through. They saying planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you’ll go through in life. It would be great to hear what anyone else has gone through. Have you experienced an increase in fighting and disagreeing with your fiance since you’ve been planning a wedding? If your’e married, did peace get restored after the wedding?
