My heart sank as I heard my mother’s words. She had been the one to encourage me to pursue my relationship with my wife when we first started dating, but now, it seemed like she had changed her mind.
She thinks that my wife and I are incompatible
My mum had been trying to tell me for months that my wife and I were incompatible, and I had refused to listen. Now, it was too late.
I had been with my wife for nearly a year, and we had been planning our wedding for months. We had just found the perfect venue, and we were about to send out the invitations when my mother told me she thought we shouldn’t get married.
I was too far in to turn back now. I had to find out why she thought we weren’t compatible.
My mother explained that she had noticed a few things about my wife that made her worry about our relationship.
She said that my wife was often too controlling and didn’t seem to understand my feelings or emotions. She also pointed out that we had very different values and beliefs, and that this could lead to major issues in the future.
I knew my mother was right. I had felt a growing disconnect between us for months. I’d tried to push it aside and pretend that everything was fine, but now I realized that I should have listened to my mother.
Eventually realised my mum was right
We tried to talk through our issues, but it was too late. My wife refused to change her behavior and we were both too stubborn to compromise.
In the end, I had to accept that my mother was right. We were incompatible, and the wedding was off.
I had let myself get so caught up in the idea of getting married that I had forgotten to consider whether we were really compatible.
I was devastated that it had come to this, but I knew that I had to move on.
