Today’s OPP is from Lauren,
Yi Slacker and Steve,
I had the worst experience at my first wedding dress fitting, I realized I didn’t want to get married. I was super excited when I started putting it on and getting zipped up, but as soon as I saw myself in the mirror I began to dread the thought of being with the same guy for the rest of my life. My fiancé is really an amazing person, but I don’t want to pretend that I’d be happy married. I’m actually thinking of asking him if we can just be together, but not be married. How can I propose this to him without him wanting to break it off?
Slacker thinks it’s weird that most girls get happy when they look at themselves in their wedding dress, and picture their future, while Lauren dread that thought. He thinks it’s just cold feet if she truly loves her fiancé and doesn’t want to see him with anyone else. He remembers brushing off an idea of cold feet at his first wedding, but he thinks it’s a strange moment to have while trying on the dress.
Steve thinks she’s making a big deal out of something that just sounds like cold feet before the wedding. He thinks putting the dress on makes the moment become more real for women and that might be what scares her about it.
How should she tell her husband she doesn’t want to have the wedding? Or is it just cold feet?
I think it sounds like cold feet where she’s just scared of the future. I think if she goes through with the wedding, she’ll be happy she did but, she has to overcome the fear of being with him for the rest of her life first.
