Cupid’s Advice:

Although the thought of calling of your happily-ever-after is tragic, there are times when it is unfortunately necessary. Granted, it might be one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make, but remind yourself that calling off an engagement now is much easier than ending in divorce down the road:

1. Infidelity: Everyone has their own opinions on cheating–whether it’s always a complete deal-breaker or just depends on the circumstance–but if your partner is already being unfaithful before you tie the knot, what will they be doing after several years of marriage? Think about it, is a ceremony and contract going to suddenly change their ways?

2. Serious second thoughts: It’s important to preface this item by clarifying there’s a difference between getting cold feet and rethinking the entire engagement. It’s normal for one to get nervous as the wedding date begins to approach, but if one of you is seriously wondering if you’re ready to make this commitment or are not convinced your union will last, it may be a sign the engagement needs to be called off, or at least put on pause.

3. Unresolved issues: Every relationship has their conflicts, but if there are some serious issues between the two of you that have yet to be worked out, it’s important to resolve them before walking down the isle. Issues don’t go away just because you’re married. Often times, couples believe if they just seal the deal, the old problems will disappear, but they’ll still be there at the end of the day, with or without that marriage certificate. So if there are issues weighing on your relationship, consider calling off the engagement until they’re resolved.
