- Wedding: August 2012
Hi all, I am currently engaged to a fabulous fabulous man. Seriously if I wrote down everything I wanted in a man it would be him to a tee. We are getting married in August. I am having my dream wedding, I have my dream dress, I have wonderful family/friends who are involved and no drama at all so far, I am going to have wonderful in laws including SILs and BILs and a bunch of adorable nieces. My FI and I live in our absolute dream house, we have a cute little dog and his job allows me to work part time instead of full time and we are still saving/have money in the bank. We have no debt at all. I could go on about just how perfect my life is right now, I seriously have everything I have ever wanted in a man, familial relationships, my home, my car, my finances, my job (I have a masters degree and a great job in a wonderful field) and even my dog.
So whats the problem? I had a broken engagement several years ago that really hurt me for awhile. I was with someone for 5 years who ended up cheating on me (as in getting someone pregnant while we were engaged!!) In addition to the cheating this guy had no ambition (dropped out of college, years later still doesn’t have a decent job) and he and I fought all the time!
In my current relationship my FI is really funny, we rarely fight and when we do he usually makes me laugh so I can’t even stay mad, he tells me I’m beautiful everyday, he makes me feel special, he does little things for me to show me how much he cares and I truly just like the person he is, he is a good man, he cares about his family (and mine!) he is very ambitious in his career, has good moral character and is just wonderful to be around in general. I am so so lucky to have what I have! I 100% trust my FI he has never done anything for me to question him, he leaves his phone lying around, he leaves his email open etc etc I just sometimes get nervous that I am making a mistake by getting married bc what if he does cheat on me someday, or change? I think my past relationship issues have really affected me…I don’t want to screw this up though ahhh any advice?
