Moving on from a relationship when you can't do No Contact

Is exercise really worth it?

I really dislike exercising and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to motivate myself. After reading this comment I realized part of the problem is I'm ambivalent because I'm not really convinced exercise does much for me. Help me convince myself otherwise. [more inside]

Ambivalent about getting married.

I'm posting this as myself because my S.O. doesn't read ask.mefi, and even if he does, he's aware of the problem anyway. I'm very ambivalent about getting married. Our wedding is three months away. We've been together for three years. We share a house we just bought a few months ago, but either of us could afford to live in it alone. We have no kids. [more inside]
