It’s not just rumour; there was an official statement put out by McIlroy through his management company.
“The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.
“There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people. I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we have had.
“I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.”
Wasn’t it just a few days ago that the pair had a lovely dinner at Nobu in Monte Carlo?
I certainly hope that’s not where he dumped her later on.
But maybe ol’ Rory was onto something here:
We’re not sure there were too many people who actually thought these two would get down the aisle. But they did get as far as sending out the invites.
They’re too young, they’ve spent so little time together because of the demands of their careers, you had to figure at some point they’d realize that they don’t know each other all that well. And that, really, what was the rush.
But to not only end the engagement, but end the whole relationship? That’s a whole lot more than “Wow, I’m really immature. I thought this marriage thing would be cool but it’s, ummmmmm, a really big deal and I had no clue!” from old McIlroy.
Seriously; it takes the issuing of wedding invitations to “make you realise all that marriage entails?” That’s not even a crumb.
Too bad the lad turned out to be a cad – I mean, if you propose marriage, you should mean it. But it was a dumb idea to start with. Better now than later, though.
Meanwhile, poor Wozniacki, who was already a question mark for the French Open because of a knee issue, has all this to deal with.
