I’m so sorry you are going through this. I wish you and your Fiance the best and as long as you two always try to stay on the same page you will be okay.

I’m so sorry that this is something you’re dealing with before your wedding 🙁 It sounds like your parents have been together for a long time already, right? Hopefully it is like you said, that this is the absolute last resort if it is where it is truly heading. Just remember though that your parents’ relationship is not you and your FI’s relationship, so just keep knowing and never doubt that you and your Fiance will always be perfect for one another. Sounds like you have a strong hold on that already though!

My boyfriend and I are reading The Five Love Languages and learning a lot.  I don’t know your parents situation, but it’s pretty interesting no matter where you are in your relationship.  Check it out on Amazon.

I am so sorry that this is happening!  I hope that whatever ends up happening, happens with harmony for all involved.  I know several divorced couples who are very good about being friendly when brought together in social situations.  Not all, but most.  Hopefully, IF your parents do choose to end their marriage, they will take into account that their personal feelings for each other should not in any way negatively impact the rest of the family.  I can only imagine the stress and sadness you must be feeling right now.  Sending virtual hugs!

I don’t know how close you are to your parents but what about doing a couples thing with them?  Maybe you could approach them and say, hey, as we prepare for marriage could you help me and Fiance out.  It would be a good bonding experience and maybe they would get something out of it, and maybe not.
