Bad first marriage...

After my first marriage I promised myself I'd never do it again. I've been with my bf, who I have my little girl with, for 3 years and those girly wedding thoughts are trying to creep in and I can't stop them. I'm so close to going insane because I know it will never happenand I'm at a loss. Any tips to control the girly thoughts of happily ever after?

Why do you think it will "never happen"? Lots of people have bad first marriages and go on to have great seconds. Does he have kids other than your daughter?

Nope lol I had a bad first marriage and said the same thing to myself. I am now happily married going on 4 years. We didn't have a big Girly wedding. For several reasons but we will have a big Girly vow renewal at 5 years in 2014. Don't stop yourself from happiness because of a failed past relationship

My bf and I have been together almost 4 years, we started dating because we both agreed neither of us wanted to get married, my reason was bad first marriage. I'm in the same boat as u though. I talked to him that for some reason the marriage "never again" cards needed to come off the table, he stands by his decision so here I am playing house :-/ good luck hon xo

Well, having a child with him links you to him FOREVER, why not have the paperwork to go with it? ;)

If you are living with him, and have a child- why worry about the "wedding. " I'm sure you want a committment, and I would to. Just go to the justice of peace and then have a nice dinner.  The big fancy weddings begin to be so expensive and are just for show these days. Plus, really there is a happily ever after- but you have to go through a lot of things to get to the ever after.

It will never happen because he saw all the marriage troubles from his Mom's past and never wants to be in those shoes. He has no other children than our little girl, though he has said he wanted more children with me.

My first marriage was done by the j.o.p. I hated it so much because my family wasn't there. So if I ever get married again I want a little ceremony done so that I can have the handfasting done.
