Today’s question comes from a Misery Loves Cookery a reader who wants to know if she should get married. She’s engaged after dating her fiancé for a long time, but now is thinking that something might be missing. A missing ingredient, maybe? I’ll be responding LIVE on Facebook at 9 p.m. Eastern time, 6: p.m. Pacific. Come join the discussion!
Dear Misery Loves Cookery,
My long-time boyfriend and I recently became engaged. On paper, everything is great. We have been talking about marriage for at least a year, and everyone in our life expected it. I’ve been a bridesmaid in 4 weddings in 2 years, and my friends are all excited that it is my turn.
Now that I’m engaged, I feel like something is missing. I’m not sure we are compatible in the long run. He likes to go out a lot, I’m more of a homebody. We fight about this. We’ve both had a lot of divorce in our families and I don’t want that for us.
How do I know the difference between cold feet and real problems? I love him, he loves me, and this was supposed to be the beginning of our happy ending.
Thanks for your advice.
