Cupid’s Advice:

The end of an engagement is never a pleasant situation to experience, but if you know the marriage between you and your partner won’t work out, it’s best to end things now rather than go through a divorce months after the wedding. Cupid has some advice:

1. Face to face: The worst thing you can do is break off an engagement via email or text message. Situations like this are best handled in person. Take your significant other somewhere where the two of you can talk without any interruptions and explain to him/her why you don’t want to get married. Don’t hold anything back. Be completely honest with yourself and your partner.

2. Don’t get defensive: It’s only fair that your honey get upset over the things you’re telling him/her. If he/she yells at you, don’t yell back. Keep yourself as calm and composed as possible. Apologize to your partner and let them know you’re truly sorry for hurting them. Be polite and show that you still care for them.

3. Give the ring back:¬†If the engagement is truly over, you need to return the ring to your significant other. Keeping the ring may send mix signals. Your partner might continue to pressure you into doing something you’ve already told them you’re not ready for.
