    What's the biggest mistake you've ever made in a relationship & still regret it?

    I married someone I had doubts about!  I had this little nagging "NO" in the pit of my gut and yet everyone, family and friends, encouraged me to go through with it sighting it was just nerves, cold feet, and normal.

    I regret going through with it as I was not happy and it mounted greater each day.  It was very hard to get a divorce as he fought that hard.  Looking back I now realize he pushed and relentlessly nudged me into the marriage.  Some people are like that. 

    He was also determined to keep me in the marriage even knowing I did not love him and wanted out.  It is the biggest reget of my life.  I urge anyone with doubts about getting married to back off now.  It's a sad and lonely place to be married to the wrong person and can be very difficult to get out of.

    Life is to SHORT, it should be enjoyed everyday!
    Much Love and Peace, Katie

    I like that you used the word "mistake" instead of remorse or regret. All of us make mistakes and it makes it easier to answer this question when you have asked in a way that is not threatening.
    Well, I think one of the biggest mistakes I did was answering before thinking. Answering with anger instead of letting the moment diffuse and breathe. I learned this over the years but at first I was only 16 when I got married and had not known how to control my tongue.

    My biggest mistake was letting the person have complete and total control over me and what I was to do. They didn't care about the 'relationship' at all.. They just wanted someone there to tell them they were amazing and that they were loved. I regret that completely.
    Never let someone do that to you.

    I should have ended the relationship sooner. Me ex would get drunk, belligerent, and angry and at times would become verbally and physically abusive. I made excuses that he only acted that way because he was intoxicated, until I realize alcohol was a third roommate in our home. Sometimes there are some things that aren't worth fighting for.

    I had a long distance relationship about 12 yrs ago. Her and I were about 600 miles apart, when we were together it was great, we got along great. She was beautiful, funny, a wonderful person, and looking back she was the best thing to happen to me in a number of years. I confided in her and told her that I had something I really needed to tell her about myself. She took the news about me and my in private crossdressing alot better than I thought she would. She accepted it and was very positive about it overall.
      Due to SOCIETY and the stigma that comes with things that the average person does not understand or accept, like male crossdressers, I cannot begin to count the number of times I VERY SERIOUSLY considered suicide. I felt that family or friends that if they ever knew my deep secret, they would pretty much be shocked, surprised, and not really know how to handle the situation. Alot of the attitudes of society in general have also drove some crossdressers to years of therapy  or even to suicide. Anyway --- Since I stayed so hidden because of crossdressing, I dealt with depression for years, so along with depression came the self medication with drug of choice. When my then girlfriend found out she was upset, pissed, felt like I lied to her, etc.   I cant blame her at all.
          My Biggest mistake was not doing everything within my ability to keep that love in my life. I let her get away. I screwed up, I couldnt see what should have been more important to me in my life at the time. I honestly think I could still be with her if I just could have been honest with her and with myself. That was the last real relationship I have had in my life. Was it worth it ? Not at all. I loved her so much and there are days I still miss her, and yes it hurts. So theres my long drawn out babble and my story.

    Showing anger on my friend, for another friend's mistake, and breaking up the relationship between us, was the first and the biggest mistake I have done in my life. I still remember the mistake I have committed, and unable to forget, even we have get back into relationship again.
