May is set to walk down the aisle with her fiance, Jason, who came into her life after Prince dumped her and traveled out of the country.

But just when she thinks her life is settled, Prince makes a comeback and it seems they did not even break up in the first place.

And now, May is not sure she wants to go ahead with the wedding again.

Read her story here:

"My name is May, a 28-year-old troubled woman. I am in a serious dilemma at the moment because my wedding is coming up in June this year but I am not sure I want to go through with it.

While my fiance, Jason, and our families are looking forward to the wedding with great anticipation, my enthusiasm has been dwindling by the day and at times, I have been tempted to tell him I am not sure the wedding will work.

The reason for my lackadaisical attitude to my wedding is the sudden appearance of Prince, my ex-boyfriend who dumped me four years ago and traveled out of the country.

In truth, Prince was my first real love and despite the fact that we have been apart for four years, the love I had for him has never been able to quench and with his coming back into my life has further complicated things for me.

I find myself falling in love with him all over again and in spite of myself, I believe we were meant to be together and I am even happy he came back before I got married to another man.

I am not saying that I do not love Jason, after all, I agreed to marry him but Prince is one man that no one can ever replace.

I met Prince in my first year at the university while he was in his third year. Before I met him, I had had some relationships but they were all meaningless. Prince became my breath, my life and soul.

I worshiped the ground he walked and could do anything for him. When we made love for the first time, I felt more drawn to him and vowed never to sleep with another man as long as I lived.

But two years after he graduated, Prince traveled out of the country without letting me know. His friends too could not help matters as no one was sure where he went to. Some said he had gone to an obscure country in Europe, while some said he had traveled to either Asia or South Africa.

As days rolled into weeks, months and years and no word came from Prince, I was totally cut off from the world. I stayed for two years without dating any other man. Attempts by friends to match-make me with other men failed.

My family was becoming worried and my mother pleaded with me to forget Prince and move on with my life. After so much pressure, I decided to give in to Jason who had been asking me out for a very long time.

Our affair did not last for more than eight months when he proposed to me and shortly after, we had our introduction and a date was fixed for the wedding.

But just as I was looking forward to it, Prince suddenly showed up. I don't know how he got my number but he just called me up one day in the office and told me he was lodging in a hotel in Festac Town.

Without waiting for his invitation, I went to the hotel to see him and it was as if we did not have any break. I just fell into his hands and while we made love, I knew that nothing had ever changed.

He told me he had first traveled to China to look for greener pastures but he was deported after some months and in the past four years, he had traversed many parts of the world trying to make ends meet.

What finally killed me literally was when he said all he did was to have a better future for me. I told him I was getting married in a month's time and he broke down and cried like a baby. That was when I knew Prince was made for me and the doubts about my intending wedding crept into my mind.

I have tried to justify my actions but in truth, I see no reason getting into a marriage I will not be happy in because I will still find a way to sneak into the arms of Prince.
