On Ask Polly: My Parents Don't Want Me To Marry This Short Man And I'm Freaking Out!

Good Advice. If you feel anxious, there is a reason for it. Your body is very intelligent in that respect. It is very easy to lie to yourself with your mind, but your body does not. I was very anxious when I was getting married to someone my parents didn't approve of. I told myself that my anxiety was due to the fact that I very seldom went against their wishes. And they made it difficult by not accepting my decision. To absolutely nobody's surprise (except mine) that marriage did not work out. Looking back I can see that I did not listen to my inner wisdom. I had thoughts about breaking up before the wedding, but there seemed to be too much on the line. So I never fully explored those thoughts and I became stubborn about it. End result: Alcoholism, constant fighting, nasty divorce, 4 disappointed and scared children, and 6 broken hearts.
