Is It My Dad’s Fault I’m Not Married?
I’m not sure when it happened, but it did. My dad went from saying “wait to get married until you’re a little older and have accomplished everything you want to on your own, including your career” to “what are you waiting for?!” But it did.
I came close to getting married three years ago. I was engaged to a wonderful man but I just knew I wasn’t going to have the long-lasting best friend I had always hoped to have. So I made the hardest decision of my life and canceled my wedding a few months before it happened. I never regret that decision and I am still friends with my ex-fiance, who is a wonderful man. And now, years later, I have been wondering if it was ever going to happen.
