When to Break Off an Engagement and How to Do It

Marriage is one of the most important decisions of your life. Marriage is not built to “solve all of your problems”—it exposes all of your problems. If you’re engaged and you’re having second thoughts—or you’re seeing red flags—how do you know if it’s time to break it off? And if it is time to break it off… how do you do it?

Jackie and Bobby have some experience here. Each of them had been engaged to other people before, and it did not come to fruition. It wasn’t easy. But in the end, they found each other. Today, Jackie and Bobby want to share their insights, give us a reality check, and help us find a way forward. “Better fourteen broken engagements than one broken marriage.”
