My boyfriend of 2 1/2 years seems to be pushing me away. He was preivously married for a about 9 years I think and the marriage did not work out due to her cheating... my question is, could he be so hurt from his previous relationship that he is scared of this one now to take the next step? I am not pushing him towards marriage nor do I like to bring it up as I know he might feel weird or not ready for it. I myself am not ready, but, I know in my heart that one day I want to be married. Why does this happen? Why do people bring lesions and pain from their previous relationship into a new one? Its not fair :(
