Q: My fiance admits he drinks too much sometimes but promises he’ll stop once we get married. My parents say he’s lying and I’m a fool to believe him, but I can’t bear the thought of living without him the rest of my life. Who is right? — D.G.
A: I would advise you to delay your wedding until you and your fiance can resolve this situation. It is unlikely that your marriage will cause him to change his behavior. If you think he may need help in the matter, urge him to seek counseling. If he refuses to accept help or change his behavior, you should consider calling off the wedding and ending your relationship. This may cause you much pain, but may be the best course of action for you.
