My best friend is dating my fiance’s friend (a rich man’s son).
They’ve been together for a year and she’s already talking about marriage. She said he has made lot of promises about where they will stay, how many children they will have and how she will be living like a princess once they get married.
It’s the only thing she likes to talk about and I feel sad for her because I know they are all empty promises.
Recently we had dinner together and she brought up how he was going to propose to her any day now. I asked her if she was sure and she kept insisting she had a gut feeling. I tried to gently explain that I didn’t think he was going to propose and she shouldn’t get her hopes up but she got angry and told me I didn’t know anything and that he was going to marry her.
It turned into an argument and I told her his family wouldn’t let him marry a girl like her so he would never do it. That it’s well-known in their social circles that they can date and have fun with whatever girl they want, as long as they marry the right type of girl. I have seen it happen so many times with the men in these circles and they always marry the type of girl their family approves of in the end.
I understand what I said wasn’t the nicest thing to hear but I felt someone had to say it to her before she got hurt even worse later on. She ended up telling me I was jealous before leaving and has been complaining about me to our mutual friends. She told her boyfriend, who complained to my fiancé that I was trying to ruin his fun.
