Thanks for the responses. I think I will definitely stick with current T. She does have good insight and knows me quite well. However, in addition, I think I should find some sort of mentor at my church or somewhere else, someone who is in a good marriage.

I never saw marriage as a fairy tale, in fact, when I was a kid I said I would never get married, because I was so horrified by my parents' marriage. I wanted no part of anything like that! I stayed single throughout my 20s and thought people who got married in their 20s were rushing things. Now that I am in my 30s, I think I could get married IF it was to a good person, someone healthy.

I feel like I do not have a model of a healthy marriage. Some of my friends are married, but it hasn't been long enough for them to really know how it will all pan out. And already, I can see that some of their marriages are not so great. Most seem all right though.

I don't want to end up in a bad marriage that contributes to my depression and anxiety, no way.

Well, just rambling now...thanks for the input.
