Is It OK To Get Cold Feet Before Your Big Day?

Apparently Amanda Peet admitted to feeling a little bit uneasy about her upcoming wedding to screenwriter David Benioff last night on Letterman. Her fears seem very small and completely un-husband related though. But what about the people who are afraid to spend happily ever after with the partner they've chosen?

I had the worst cold feet I'd ever seen or heard of. Every little word made me want to flip out and just call the whole thing off. Even things unrelated to the wedding. I didn't think about it being cold feet, I thought it was me not wanting to commit. The next morning, I was fine.

I think its normal. Although I didn't feel cold feet on that day I was just really happy and excited. But throughout my engagement there were times that I felt scared I mean you're changing your life basically.

i never understood this cold feet thing..i mean if u havent realized that ur ready for marriage before your wedding day then you must be slow in your head..and if u had doubts why would u ignore them and just wait til the wedding day just seems a little silly to me.

I think everyone has the jitters, all my friends did. Its more of the wedding and all the events and pressure that really get your nerves going. True doubts show before you are in dress, waiting to walk!

I think it can have a lot to do with what you've seen of others' marriages. I've had a lot of commitment issues in my life because my mom has been married three times, my dad twice, and there are lots of multiple marriages on my mom's side of the family. I want to get married... I just don't want to get divorced. AND I don't want to stay with someone just for the sake of staying married. So it's those things that have, thus far, kept me from taking the plunge with anyone.

I think it's normal...I don't think it means you're not in love with your mate., I just agree with what you said in your first set of comments. I know I was scared....but I'm so glad 4 yrs. later that I was able to 'control' my anxiety/gagging/scared kind of thing.........teeheehee*

Second time I've misunderstood something, I thought you were asking about our experiences. :OOP:

None of the above. I was really terrified, but I my fear was the act of marriage, not the man. I wanted to live with him till the day I died. Everyone, always told me (not my parents), but everyone else, "once you get married, everything changes". So, I figured why ruin a great thing, 5 years later, I finally told him, I was ready. And you know what, everything felt even better, and in the past ten years things just keep getting better and better, everyday. :)
