Ask Rene: Should I Marry This Man Or Not?


Ask Rene:
Should I Marry This Man
Or Not?



Hi Rene:

I’m engaged to be married in September. This would be a second marriage for me; my first marriage was a disaster and the only good thing I can say about it is that we didn’t have children. My fiancé is a very good man and I love him, but I have this feeling that maybe I shouldn’t marry him. I’m not sure why. I don’t know if I feel gun-shy because of my first marriage or if I really do need to call the wedding off.  What should I do?

Hey Uncertain:

Glad you wrote in and, as always, I’ll do what I can to help. I think there is definitely a difference between normal, pre-wedding jitters and , “HOLY CRAP WHAT AM I DOING?” The trick for you is figuring out which of those this is. So here’s what I would suggest.

2. Talk To Someone

I'm a big fan of seeking professional help when necessary and this feels like one of those times. You can choose to speak with a professional counselor or maybe you'd rather talk to clergy instead. Either way it needs to be someone whose opinion you trust. Sometimes the fresh eyes and perspective of someone who is not intimately involved can make things a bit more clear.
