I was. Actually, his sister broke up with me for him a week before our wedding because he went back to his baby momma. It all worked out though…I wouldn’t have gotten with Darling Husband if we hadn’t broekn up! = )

I was engaged at 18. We had been together two years and he was terrified of losing me so he proposed. It was young and stupid. In a way, the engagement ring was his way of marking me (similiar to a dog pissing on a hydrant). 

We stayed together until I was 21. He cheated on me repeatedly and I didn’t find out until I got a phone call. The girl he was cheating on me with called me with her phone on speaker so I could actually hear her having sex with my fiance.

We did not get back together.

I ended a really ambiguous engagement situation and moved far away. We haven’t spoken in many years.

Me! Luckily the ex and I hadn’t started really planning the wedding yet when it happened. I think I always knew that we weren’t going to actually end up married. Neither of our families were supportive and he was a serial cheater. It was an unhealthy relationship and I was actually relieved when I finally got the courage to end it for good.

I ended it. He was to attend my brother’s wedding with me and when I told him I would go alone, he pretty much understood it was over.

I realized it was too much work to make it work. Our views on absolutely everything just clashed like crazy. Not to mention the whole “I wasn’t good enough, change this, change that” thing.

Also, when I found out that my family didn’t believe he was the one for me, it really made me second guess our future. Marriage is a big deal and “the rest of your life” type thing to me. I couldn’t just say “Eh, we’ll try it and see”. I wanted it to be right.

So….thank goodness I did end it. My husband was patiently waiting to meet me and he didn’t even know it at the time 😉

Me- I’ve been engaged not once but twice before

The first time we had grown up together and he was a family friend. I think both of our familes wanted us to be together and it was easy so we were. He proposed when I was still in school but I never felt quite right about it. We broke up senior year and ended it amicably. We are still friends and he is happily married to a wonderful woman

The second time I got engaged was 8 years ago to a wonderful man. He found out he had cancer 4 days after he proposed and died 4 months later. I still have pieces of his ring- my fiance actually used a couple of the diamonds in my ring now. It may sound weird to others but it was incredibly thoughtful and emotional for me.

He’s been in jail on and off since we broke up. I can only imagine how bad my life would have turned out if I had stayed with him. 

I certainly wouldn’t have my little girl.

The girl he was screwing actually turned her life around and is now married with a son. I did get an apology from her about six months after the fact.
