Caroline Rules: I Do or I Don't?
"Real Housewife" Caroline Manzo on what to do about pre-wedding doubts
On the other hand, I hope you're not marrying him because you feel as if the clock is ticking. Don't make the mistake that so many women do, thinking I have to get married because I'm not getting any younger so I'll take what I can get. You have to love this man and be happy with him for the rest of your life, so don't make a rash decision.
I don't know how long you've been dating, but maybe you need more time. Sit back and reassess the situation. Look at him and ask yourself if he makes you happy on an emotional level as well as a physical one. Do you see yourself spending the rest of your life with him—supporting each other through good times and bad, growing emotionally together as a team while maintaining your own identities, letting each other shine as individuals, respecting each other and forgiving the minor flaws, maintaining a physical attraction, and keeping laughter and passion alive no matter how many years you've been together? If the answer is yes, then turn the TV off and relax. If the answer is no, then you two need to have a conversation. By the way, that conversation doesn't necessarily mean the end; it may just mean you need more time. It could be a month or a year—just don't jump into something you're not sure of. You don't deserve that and neither does your fiance.
