HOW DO I TELL MY FIANCÉ THAT I’M NOT READY TO GET MARRIED?
Good evening Zambian stories. I’m engaged soon to be married but lately I’ve been having second thoughts. It all started after I saw the number of divorce cases that happened in the year 2021, honestly speaking, they freaked me out. I’ve only known my fiancé for about a year, he proposed in the same year and now we’re planning our wedding.
I’m not even sure if I want to get married, I know that I want to get married but not now. I think I got carried away with the excitement of planning a wedding and wearing a wedding dress, I haven’t really thought about what goes on in a marriage, I haven’t thought about everything that comes with being married and I haven’t really gotten to know my fiancé. I don’t know everything I need to know. Everyone in my life and his life is happy and excited about this but I don’t think I want to go through with this. I know I’m not a young girl and everyone thinks this is the right age for marriage but I’m terrified that this marriage will lead to divorce.
Most of my friends are married and I’m not going to lie, they have influenced me to get married. Will my fiancé wait for me to be ready for marriage or do you think he will leave me and marry someone else?
