Earlier this morning, Rory McIlroy announced that he decided to break off his engagement to Caroline Wozniacki. We obviously have no idea what he said to her, but in his statement he gave the classic, “It’s not you, IT’S ME!” excuse. McIlroy, being only 25-years-old, didn’t comment further on what caused him to sever the engagement, but he claims that he realized he couldn’t do it the moment the pair sent out their wedding invitations.
Here is his statement, via Yahoo:
“There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people,” he explained through a statement issued by his Dublin-based communications consultants.
“The problem is mine,” McIlroy said.
“The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realize that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.
“I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.”
Not that it is the public’s business, but there has to be something deeper here. A wedding can be pushed off if the timing isn’t right. To abruptly end it all, though, that’s the action of a guy who wants greener grass or at least the freedom to find a better lawn.
