I am engaged to a great girl. We love each other dearly and respect each other very much. Sometimes we get into little arguments which worry me. My parents never stopped fighting for a single day of my life. This made me very scared of my future marriage; I am worried that I will be unhappy in my marriage. I am worried that my marriage life will be like my parents' marriage. I really love my fiancé and she loves me as well. I am just worried about my future marriage day and night. Sometimes I can not even sleep from these thoughts. I even sometimes think that marriage is a bad idea and it's much better not to get married at all so that I can avoid the trouble later. The other problem is that both my parents always complain about marriage. My Mom says that marriage is a terrible idea and my Dad says that marriage is the worst mistake in his life. I'm stuck between both of them. I am confused. I do not know what to do.
With the help of God, I got engaged to a great girl. My parents worry a lot about everything, and they always tell me to be careful and to test the girl very well before marriage, which is correct, and I am convinced with that. My only problem is that the worrying of my parents started making me worried as well. I personally think that the girl is great and she treats me very nicely and loves me from all her heart. Are my feelings of worrying normal? Or this is an abnormal feeling?
