The two began dating back in 2010 and had gotten engaged on the one year anniversary of their first meeting. The cause of the breakup is reportedly their hectic career schedules, according to Too Fab. On a positive note, Sharapova is currently playing in the U.S. Open where she has advanced to the semifinals and Vujacic is in training camp overseas for the Turkish basketball season. With a little time, the two will be back on top in their own personal lives again.
How do you know it’s time to call off your wedding?

Cupid’s Advice:

Walking down the aisle is a life-long commitment to each other that can destroy hearts and bank accounts if you have chosen the wrong one.  So before you take your first step, make sure there aren’t any red flags to stop you.  Here are a few tips to think about before saying “I do”:

1. Save the date: If time has passed since the engagement and a wedding date has not been set, then you may have a problem. It is understandable to wait a little while before setting a wedding date. However, if more than a year has passed and your loved one is still avoiding the calendar, chances are their “life” schedule does not include you.

2. No bachelor/bachelorette party: The bachelor/bachelorette parties are a rite of passage and the last single party of your life.  So if your mate demands that you forsake this for their benefit, find out the true reason why.  It may be possible that your mate does not trust you. Without trust, you two will never make it in the long run.

3. Baby names: Planning a wedding requires many details to discuss and finalize. What it does not include are baby names and pre-schools, although it is wise to discuss how many children you want before proposal. However, if your mate wants to plan too far into the future now, they may have a case of “wanting to catch-up” to their already settled down friends. If so, is your mate marrying you or making up for lost time?
