Red Flags

May 24, 2011

I met with a friend to discuss plans for her wedding and as she vented about some typical wedding frustrations, I was very upset to hear of the behaviors her fiance is exhibiting like possessiveness, jealousy, and control.  He has also made the decision to move to another state where she doesn’t know anyone and as it is, she has no family.  Even worse, she recently allowed herself to become financially dependent on him, making it even more difficult to call off the wedding.   He assured her that he could handle things, but now he is calling the shots.

I hope I can find the right words to persuade her to reconsider her decision.  The expression on her face said, “I’m trapped.”  I wish we had a house.  I would tell her if she wants to change her mind, she is welcome to stay with us while she finds a job again and gets on her feet. 

Have you had any experience with this?
