Getting married and promising to stay committed to just one person for the rest of your life is a really big deal, so it is only natural have cold feet or pre-wedding jitters.

For a guy, marriage/commitment could be really scary, although he might not tell you, he may also be feeling the pressure, you feel too.

Use the following tips by relationship expert and author April Masini of AskApril.com if you think he has pre-wedding jitters.

  1. Have sex- This always works as there is no better stress-reliever! Masini recommends getting away for a night just in case there is too much tension at home. "There are plenty of in-town hotels or weekend getaways that won't break the bank and will give you a lot of (ahem) bang for your buck."
  2. Get physical- Another way to get him to relax is by doing physical activities. Any form of exercise is a good form of reliving stress because exercise equals endorphins. "Go horseback riding, swimming or simply hike somewhere beautiful," she suggests. "Then once you've cooled down and had some time to rejuvenate, you can calmly revisit the issue together."
  3. Act selflessly- "For instance, if you don't get along great with his daughter, take her ice skating, shopping or to the movies," advises Masini. "He'll hopefully recognize your efforts to shake up the negative norm and see things differently, including the stress!"
