How Do You Know It’s Only Cold Feet And Not Something More Serious?

Cold feet are not an unusual happening for a bride-to-be to experience.  But how do you know if what you are experiencing is a normal case of cold feet and not a deep seated emotion that is trying to warn you of impending doom?  By evaluating your feelings and situation very carefully.

Are there any warning signs that are telling you to run besides feeling cold feet?  Does your fiancé have an anger problem, a past problem with cheating, gambling or some other habit that could ruin your relationship?  Those are signs you should consider leaving the relationship.  Little things like the fact that your fiancé is always five minutes late or the fact that he never folds the laundry immediately when the dryer kicks off are not reasons to end the relationship.  These are little things that you can work around.  It is important to know the difference.

Are several of your friends and family members urging you to not marry your fiancé?  This could be more than cold feet. You can expect that there will be a personality clash on occasion between some of your friends, family and fiancé but if more than one or two people are trying to warn you away from your fiancé, it may be time to reevaluate the relationship.

If you have a feeling that you just can’t shake that is telling you are making a huge mistake, then you should probably slow things down until you can work through those feelings.  Maybe they will pass.  Maybe those feelings mean something much more important that will save you from a lifetime of heartache.  But one thing is certain, you should not go forward until you know that you want to spend the rest of your life with your intended.  If you know for certain your intended is the one for you, you can go forward happily and peacefully.
