Cupid’s Advice:

It’s okay to call off a wedding, but do so with class and consideration.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Don’t trash your former partner: Even if the marriage wasn’t meant to be, that doesn’t mean that you or your ex partner did anything wrong.  If anyone asks you about your ex or why you called off the wedding, simply say that you wish your ex the best.

2. Don’t start dating openly right away: If there ‘s someone else is the picture already, try to keep it under wraps for a while in order to be sensitive to your ex-fiancé’s feelings.

3. Get away for a while: Big and sudden changes in your life can be difficult for everyone involved.  Don’t be afraid to take a vacation from real life in order to think and get back on track.
