A 29-year-old woman broke up with her 32-year-old boyfriend several months ago after spending a long time in a relationship with him.
Although they did break up, they have been working on getting back into a relationship with one another, but she has been moving quite hesitantly towards this.
Her boyfriend has always had a tendency to react too strongly over minor things, and that has given her pause with jumping right back into dating him.
A second thing her boyfriend used to do was make her feel bad any time she expressed feeling less than happy.
Not too long ago, she attended a wedding with her boyfriend for one of his friends, and what he told her on the way to the wedding made her really stop to consider if their relationship will ever last.
“Anyway, we were out at his friend’s wedding, and on the way there, he said, “I’d never get married, the woman always ends up financially better off than the man, I would never do it,” and “I will probably never have a successful relationship,” she explained.
“You’ve just invited me as a plus one to your best friends wedding, you don’t see us ever having a successful relationship?”
That’s not something she wanted to hear, and it’s not something she expected her boyfriend to ever say to her.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the following day he admitted to her that he did not want to be a dad or have children.
