He Was Blindsided By How Everything Went Downhill So Fast
People Share Their Devastating Rejected Marriage Proposals”We had been dating for 6 1/2 years at this time. We went on a vacation to Hawaii for her 21st birthday because we wanted to make it something to remember. I planned to propose to her on the beach. She was coming back from the waves and I popped the question. She was ecstatic and said YES!!! We had a very romantic couple of days after that before we flew home.
Fast forward to 5 months later. We are out bar hopping with her sister and her husband who had just got out of the military. The husband and sister are moving to a base in Germany and they are staying for a couple weeks in our town. Her sister and she were together talking for most of the night and the husband insisted we hang out and play pool together. That’s fine he’s a cool guy and she hasn’t seen her sister in months. We get home from the bars around 12:30 AM and that’s when everything quickly goes downhill. She starts SCREAMING at me about how I’m a piece of crap and that I don’t do enough chores around the house and that she had to repair a piece on my car (that we both use) and that I should have done that and otherwise petty problems. It escalated to her shoving me as hard as she could into the bathroom where I fell into the tub and hit my head. Eventually, she went upstairs and I cried in disbelief for most of the night.
She wakes me up in the morning and says to me that she doesn’t want to spend the rest of her life with me anymore and that she wants to know what it’s like to be single. She thinks my hobbies (snowboarding and climbing) are too dangerous, and a bunch of other reasons that aren’t real reasons. She had all of her stuff moved out with the help of her sister and husband by the end of that day.
When I returned home after work she had left the ring, a framed picture of us I gave her as a gift, and the bottle of wine that was bottled on the same day we got together that we were saving for our wedding night. I’ve tried to contact her since and have gotten no response or explanation for her crazy behavior. I don’t even know where she is staying as we had mostly only mutual friends and she’s not with any of them. Her sister and husband are in Germany now. Oh, and she took one of our dogs as well.”
