The wedding has been postponed.
My friend met her fiance online. After two years of dating he proposed. She happily accepted and started planning a fabulous wedding. She got her dress, found a church and put a down payment on a reception hall. He moved in.
Everything was on track.
Then she learned her aunt, who had cancer, had only a little time left so she postponed her Aug. 5th nuptials. Her mother's sister was dear to her and she didn't know when it would be her last day.
Well her aunt lost her battle with cancer in October. My friend, who has taken medication for manic depression, became depressed shortly after the funeral.
He couldn't handle it.
Her fiance moved out of their home and in with his mother. He claimed that my friend needed to work out her "issues."
I went to visit my friend today and she is not the same. She usually has a very gracious and positive attitude. I'm used to her being bubbly, outgoing, smiling. But she barely got out the bed to answer the door when I knocked. She was sluggish, trying her best to put on a good face.
A new date has not been set for the wedding. She still has her dress and she believes her deposits are good for up to a year.
But she's having second thoughts about her prospective groom.
His picture is still on the wall. But she's wondering if she really wants to marry someone who will run every time she has "issues."
What do you think?
Do you think her fiance did the right thing by leaving?
What about "for better or for worse," "in sickness and in health"?
Wouldn't you want someone who would be able to handle your ups and downs?
Let me know your thoughts.
