Love, Lust, & Revenge
She Wants a Big Wedding
Q: My girlfriend keeps hinting at me to Ďpop the questioní but says I will probably have to pay for the wedding. This would be a second marriage for both us. I love her, but feel a little trapped around this and donít know how to bring up the fact that I canít pay for an entire wedding. How can we compromise on this without creating too much drama? -Steven, 47

Dr. Anna: First, you need to figure out what you want. Do you want to get married again? If you know donít want to get married again and you donít want a wedding, you owe it to both yourself and her to be honest with her. If itís just not going to happen, she needs to know and be able to make her own decision about what to do with that. If you do want to eventually get married again but know it doesnít make financial sense for you to pay for a big wedding, then tell her that directly. You both are in this together, figure out what youíre feeling and then talk to her about how to move forward together.
