Here we go again! My love life is unfolding in front of your eyes, and I will say that I will take a big part of the blame for not setting a date for the wedding. I let time go by, because I was so preoccupied with work and traveling. I always tell my friends or people I meet that if you get engaged, make sure to plan the wedding and set a date right away and go for it. Otherwise you get into your everyday life, and when time passes, it doesn't seem to be a priority anymore. The excitement goes away, especially if you are busy with projects and always traveling and basically living out of your luggage.
I always knew in my heart I love Romain and want to be with him, but I feel I always shied away from making the big move, because I wanted to still have my freedom. Maybe at some point in my life I felt once I married I wouldn’t have the freedom to do whatever I want or that maybe he will want me to be the typical housewife (which of course would never happen as I am an independent woman, and no one tells me what to do). I was happy being engaged, but now I feel that after so many years I need to put my foot down and finally start planning the wedding or break up and move on. It’s not that my career is any less important to me now and that’s why I am more ready, but more that I feel after five years you just have to make that commitment. Otherwise another five years will go by and I may have regrets. (Plus I want to look good in my wedding gown and still be youthful!).
I hate to say it, but I think something sexual has happened between Romain and the sister. Why does she get so emotional when he does things, it's not a normal brother/sister-in-law relationship. It seems like she's constantly talking or crying about him.
If it's a good healthy relationship, a piece of paper isn't going to make it any better or any stronger. For some it's completely the opposite. I would never tell anyone to not get married, being divorced makes my opinion questionable, but I can also speak to what I know. I'm always amazed how many people insist the end result of any serious relationship has to be in marriage considering it has a 50% fail rate. If marriage is for you, do it and god bless. If you are happy as you are, god bless as well and don't let anyone define your relationship but you yourself. You sound plenty capable of taking care of yourself ....
I think your sister needs to move out. If there is tension with she and Romain it's because she is invading his space. Encourage her to get her own place so you can focus on your relationship. You are beautiful but who cares if you're old and alone. When your sister gets a man I'm sure she will put him before you and honestly at a certain age that's what you should do. Other than that, I like you. No sex is a red flag. Focus on your relationship for a bit before rushing into marriage.
I could be jumping the gun, but I don't think you've been too busy with work to plan the wedding. I think you have been too busy with work to recognize the damage you have on your hands with Romain. He clearly does not make you happy. It seems as though you're talking about marriage as a task to check off the list. I don't see him complimenting you at all.
I didn't care for the first set off Miami housewives but Alexia and here we go again. What is wrong with you people? At least the last group didn't lay down and let their men walk all over them. HELLO ladies??? You and Karent blow my mind. The minute you have to start asking your man do you want to marry me- you should had already been out the door. Being in love is simple. When it's right, your man is on his knees with a ring in hand to make sure he has you in his arms every mornig for the rest of his life. You and Karent just make me sad the way you almost beg for these men. I got married at 18 years old- i kid you not. I just celebrated my 21st anniversary and we've been blessed with 3 gorgeous kids and we are still completely in love with each other because we "get" marriage and everything it means. I've never even wanted to be with another man. But most of all- I've never not once had to question his love, his commitment to me and our family, or his devotion to our happiness. You should never be in a posotion to question your mans love or devotion. You should be able to walk around a confident woman in his commitment to you. We make sure we each know the other never has to worry about straying eyes.There's nothing worse than your partner not giving you the respect of his commitment and total heart.
Hi Joanna! You have an amazing beauty and great sense of humor. As wonderful as a close sister is, you're living together, spending all your free time together? You and Marta were joking it up on the couch, while Romain asked a legitimate question about food shopping and meals. Maybe that's how it is in your house, but putting your fiance first may enhance your communication and sex life. And I only mention sex because you told the world that he isn't very interested in pursuing it with you. A little emasculating, yes?
What excuse does Marta have for barging into your bathroom while your fiance is showering, not just once, but a FEW times? Girlfriend, please. Set boundaries.
Girl, u shouldn't feel rushed to get married, it's a piece of paper, some men change think they own u!!?? U need to go to a couples therapy course, u need to see the worst in a mate before you get married!! If not u will be divorced. U r stunning, that being said. No sex?? Red flag! No healthy male goes with out sex girl?? U need to both work on Marriage u have a pretty dress,and 500 guests will not help u both, just put u in debt.. Reconnect before u marry,find what u love about each other.. Do me a favor pLEASE do NOT use fillers ever in that beautiful face, age gracefully, all that crap is tested on ANIMALS!!??
Your sister really needs to get her own place. Simple solution. If you and Romain are to get married your husband will come first because he is your family. Your extended family comes second.
Romain is jealous of Marta because Marta takes a lot of Joanna's attention. That's pretty obvious.
As close as the sisters are, Marta should get her own life, then some of the problems between the 3 of them will disappear.
Aspiring actress/singer but basically following in your sister's shadow isn't really showing ambition Marta. She seems a bit spoiled and aimless.
Joanna, no matter what age you get married, you will ALWAYS be a stunningly beautiful woman! You could have any man you want. Romain is an idiot if he doesn't marry you FAST! Don't waste too much more time with him if he is not willing to give you the committment you want and deserve!
