- Wedding: September 2012
I’m 5 weeks from getting married. And I was super excited for it but I am starting to get depressed because of one thing…divorce. There are multiple people in my family and friends who are either going through a divorce or have just recently finalized them (I’m counting 5 now all at once) ..I want to be there for them as they are going through this but at the same time I find marriage to be sacred and I think they are making mistakes because their reasons seem so minimal and can be worked through. Also they all won’t attend my wedding now because of this and I feel somewhat unimportant in what I am about to commit to. I feel discouraged to get married now because even though I feel like I would do anything to keep my marriage from failing, I may still have to go through the same thing someday and it scares me a little…I wish I could help them but some of the situations I have absolutely no authority to say anything even though I want to because it affects me and other members in my family. I feel heartbroken but I’m trying to stay positive…any advice would be appreciated on maybe another way to view this situation or how to keep my head up without me feeling selfish.
