*hugs* You sound very strong girl! You are right, you need some rest and just let it absorb. You don’t need someone who is always going to threaten to call off the wedding for stupid shit. What happens when you are married? Is he going to threaten to call off the marriage because he didn’t like a certain dinner guest?

I know everybody is saying it, but I had to say it too: Good for you! Standing up for yourself is a brave thing to do and it sets the stage for future happiness, even if things feel crappy right now!

Sprinkling glitter on a turd! That is priceless. 

In all seriousness though Good for you! You do NOT need to put up with that kind of treatement. No person should. When you are in a relationship and planning marriage, family, in my opinion, is a big part of that. Your son will always be your son, who he is with, you may not like, but as parents you accept it and just do what you can to protect them.

I am glad you are stepping up and protecting yourself too now! 

Not to say this wont be tough, because 15 years is a long time… but if you can get through cancer… you can get through this!!

So many times I have heard stories of women being treated horribly by their Fiance, only to marry them and then instantly regret it.

I find it inspiring that you were able to recognize manipulative behavior and make the decision to end an obviously toxic relationship.  Sounds like he’s been pushing people away from you for a long time.

Thanks for sharing your story!  I hope all women who are in the same type of manipulative relationship can take a second look and do the right thing.

@anne B: Good for you! You are an inspiration for standing up to yourself. I wish you a healthy healing process. Be sure to continue to take care of yourself and reach out to your support system as you untangle your life from your ex-fiance’s.

@anne B: WOW. I am taken by you story and impressed by you. When something like BC comes along, it puts so much into perspective. We realize what we will and will not stand for, and it is that much clearer and a more direct path to arrive those decisions. May you have clear skies and happiness ahead.
