I am 30 year old girl. My parents had divorced when I was around 13 years old, after years and years of an abusive marriage. They would shout and scream and hit each other. It was a difficult childhood, but I do not want to get into that. The issue is that I have a boyfriend, who is perfect. We have been going out since quite some time now. He loves me and has recently proposed to me. However, I am traumatized by the concept of marriage. I have not answered him yet, and he is being very patient and understanding, because he knows about my past. But I am not sure if would ever be able to marry. I am morally feeling obligated to break off with him, so that he doesn’t spoil his future, waiting for me. I cannot stand the thought of leaving him, but it’s for best. Am I thinking right? What do I do?
