Question for Betty.

Recently got engaged a few months ago, but fiance and I have been feeling distant between each other.  Fiance recently told me he needs a break to see if this is what he really wants.  We've been together for 6 years and I feel like we were a lot closer before our engagement.  I feel like you either know you want to be with someone, or you don't.  Should we break up?

Betty's Answer.

You have some big questions and good questions. The good new is that you both are able to talk about your feelings.  It sounds like you have both invested a lot in this relationship.  You may want to explore couples counseling. This would provide a safe place for further discussion.

If you are an eligible UAA student, you may call the Student Health & Counseling Center to set up an intake appointment with one of the Mental Health Providers.  You may also refer to our website for further on-campus counseling options.
