Dilemma of the Day:
"I have been with my partner for 6.5years. I had a daughter when we met who he has been a great father to and we also have another daughter who we had together. It is my dream to be married to him. I am whole heartedly with the man I am I supposed to spend the rest of my life with. I have brought up the discusion of marriage quite a bit especially in the last few years. He has always said when we get out of debt we can get engaged and married. Then i had a dream that we just got married. No engagement ring no big day as to me the being his wife part is what I want. I mentioned the dream and he said that's the way to do it if you ask me. So i said why don't we? He straight away said he didn't want to upset me and that even though the ring etc wasn't important to him he knows they are to me. But i said i would be fine with getting married without all that. Then he said well it's just a piece of paper so what's the point? Do you think maybe he just doesn't want to get married?? He just keeps making excuses. I would rather he just stops leading me to think that it will happen some day if he doesn't really want to. I would still stay with him regardless because i love him. But i don't know where i stand? How can i get him to tell me what he really wants?" #MWDilemma
"We are secretly eloping early next year overseas and plan to have our Engagement party and Surprise wedding in mid next year. I would love to hear how people have previously announced their surprise wedding to guests (we only want to announce it at the engagement party). I would also love to hear ideas for wording on engagement invitations to ensure guests attend the 'engagement'. #MWQuestion
"We are hiring a 5 piece band. They stated we supply food for them. We are treating our guests to 12oz ribeyes served by a caterer. My fiance is footing the bill for the food and said we should just get them a big sandwhich platter because they are the help not guests. I am torn by being polite and following the guidance of my future husband?" #MWQuestion
Dilemma of the Day:
"I need some advice! What should I do if my family don't like my partner? My partner and I have had a child together and my partner asked me to marry him before I even found out I was pregnant! My parents haven't liked my partner since day one and have said they don't want me marrying him. Any advice?" #MWDilemma
Dilemma of the day:
"About six years ago, a guy who is childhood friend of mine proposed to his girlfriend. I met her through him and we became good friends. My childhood friend later called off the engagement and she was heartbroken, understandably. The ex-fiancé and I have stayed really close.
Now my childhood friend is engaged again and his new fiancé has asked me to be a bridesmaid! I hardly know her, I'm polite when I see her but she is from overseas so doesn't have many friends here. My friend (the ex) is still affected by the breakup and I feel as though I'd be disloyal to her if I agree to be a bridesmaid for the new fiancé. In saying that, I've known the guy since we were kids. Should I reject the offer - or - be kind to the new fiancé? Technically she hasn't done anything wrong. How should I break the news to each person?" #mwdilemma
Dilemma of the day:
"My fiancé and I are getting married next year and we're starting to work on the seating arrangements for the wedding. Both sides of the family are being extremely difficult and nosy and are making requests about who they do and don't want to be seated with! It's near impossible to please everyone but I don't want people to be unhappy at the reception. How can we get around this?? Can we just not have seating arrangements? Help!" #mwdilemma
