Why not just elope? Then you don't have to take anyone's feelings into consideration but yours and your FI's.
Thanks everyone! I appreciate all the support and virtual hugs.
FW and I did some more talking this weekend. We’re going back to couples counseling, she’s trying out a new therapist, and I’m going to do some counseling through my EAP. We’re also trying some things like doing chores and errands and taking care of the animals together instead of letting it fall completely on one of us and spending more time unplugged from technology in the evenings. Yesterday after we visited my family and told them what was going on with the wedding, we took Mutt for a walk, did some cleaning together, and binge-watched Doctor Who. In my opinion, it was one of the best evenings we’ve had in a while.
She’s also going back to school next semester, which I think will help, and she’s agreed to look into doing an intensive outpatient program to deal with her PTSD and other issues.
As for me, I’m getting to more meetings and working on building up my support network a little more. I keep very busy and encounter a lot of people through work, volunteering, and my Meetups, but I need to work on building and rebuilding friendships.
Edited to add: I see the EAP counselor tomorrow. It was a pleasant surprise to get an appointment that fast. We see the couples counselor in two weeks, and FW meets her new therapist Friday afternoon.Report15
FW took the written test for her learners’ permit today. She takes her driving test a week from Saturday. Gods and Goddesses, help me.
Good game Yankees fans. There’s always next year.
Your pictures are gorgeous, and one day you’re going to have some great stories. Congratulations!
