I am sending you, right now, a virtual cheese enchilada platter and a frozen margarita from the restaurant of your choice! :)
Every day (and year) above ground has the potential to be a good one,right?
Could I get a congratulatory smack on the ass please?
Yea for teaching at a church-affiliated university!
It gets better, wage slave! (Usually).
However, I don't think you can really tell a people madly in love anything. Even if you do, they won't hear it. They don't want to. I think the best thing you can do is what you did--be supportive and honest before and after (and it seems there will inevitably be an "after," sadly). The "I told you so" moment will never come (or shouldn't--the jiltee is already suffering).
My own brother just married someone about whom I have very doubtful feelings, and about whom my husband (who is the best judge of character I know) has no positive feelings at all. It's caused a giant rift between my brother and our parents, and just a lot of pain all around. But no one, not even I, could tell him anything. He was just so happy to have found someone, and can't see the manipulation that's going on. But I want to have a relationship with him, so I do--I go along to get along--all the while dreading what I think will be the eventual outcome.
It sucks, but I plan to be there for him on both sides of this thing, come what may. He's the only brother I have, and one of the most important relationships in my life.
