Unfinished Fairytales and Broken Engagements

Nisha JamVwal explores the most common reasons for breakups and what couples can do to avoid these heartbreaks.

Kate was imagining a fairy-tale wedding and was all set with her gown, jewellery et all, when it broke off unceremoniously. She’s shattered. I can imagine how bad it must be because I am sad about it too. A broken engagement is after all, shattered dreams of romance, of a happy life together, a home, children and all that they had looked forward to.

Kate is warm, giving and as ‘nice’ as they come. She's also a smiling, positive, fun person. But things "didn't work out," she says. That sums up the disconnect that they encountered through the run up to the wedding. When engagements are made, two young people are moving in a space of upbeat happiness and anticipation to a loving future together- whether the choice is made by them or arranged by their families.

The Southwest desert is arguably one of the most uniquely scenic areas of the United States. Its vast majesty, laced with a network of roads of every kind, encompasses six states. These backcountry byways can take us to some amazingly beautiful and desolate destinations. The catch? They are mostly unpaved and many are technical, sandy, rutted, off-camber desert trails with stream crossings and frequently changing slopes. Wind and rain ensure that no two days will see the exact same conditions.
