In a feature I call “Your Turn,” in which you, the readers, get to answer the question, I’m presenting the following letter without commentary from me:
In addition, my fiancé works nights and I work days, so we only see each other on weekends. When I try to talk to him about wedding stuff, he brushes it off and says he just wants to relax, which I completely understand – all I want to do is relax too, but with nine weeks to go, we should really be sorting out last-minute little things so we can relax and enjoy the weeks leading up to the big day. I don’t want to nag him all the time but it’s stressing me out because it feels like nothing is getting done!
Unfortunately, because this is all hanging over our heads, we have been arguing loads and it’s been horrible. I’m looking forward to getting the wedding over and done with more than anything else. I’ve even had second thoughts because it seems like it would be easier to avoid all this hassle and just enjoy myself! He really is a wonderful man and I’m so looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him but all he seems to do lately is annoy me (and I’m pretty sure he feels the same way about me) and we don’t have the money to go out and escape each other! What do we do? — Stressed-out Bride
