Thank you so very much for the sound advice regarding my friend’s wedding. I wanted to give you an update! So I finally reached her on Sunday night. She opened the conversation by telling me that she and her fiance had just had their engagement pictures taken earlier that day. Which was a perfect segway for me. I asked her if she was sure she wanted to go through with the wedding, because I was having my doubts. I told her that her behavior with other guys wasn’t fair to her fiance and that I felt like she wasn’t serious about making this lifetime commitment. She told me that she and her fiance are undergoing couple’s counseling and are working out the kinks in their relationship, and that she feels that it is helping already. She said that for awhile she wasn’t sure if she was making the best decision by marrying him, but she said that the holidays made her realize that he is who she wants to spend the rest of her life with. I told her that I was happy they were working on their relationship, but that she should cut out the flirting with other guys and needed to get more serious about the wedding. She said she understood and would change. I told her that if I did not see such a change, I would not feel comfortable serving as her maid of honor. She said she understood and would be making the changes. I hope this is all true! I also asked her if she was going to be honest with her fiance and tell him the truth about everything, but she said she did not think she would be able to do that. I don’t agree with that decision, but I suppose it is her relationship, not mine.
Thanks again for all of your advice!!
