“We can get married now, but I don’t want to marry him”

Marriage? um yeah…um…well I was um…thinking that like…um…yeah


Dear Angela,

I’m excited about being able to get married in Utah now. But, my family still doesn’t know I’m gay. My boyfriend wants the two of us to be with everyone else taking advantage of this moment in Utah history – but it wasn’t the law that was keeping me from marrying him. How do I communicate that I’m just not ready for this step without destroying his romantic marriage plans?



Readers: I don’t think it’s possible to decline a marriage proposal without destroying another person’s romantic feelings…do you? How would you answer this?
