“I do love you. Since day one, I’ve wanted this, I wanted to marry you. I have. I’ve stayed consistent all the way through this. And you have not. I can’t handle the ups and downs of you loving me one day and saying you want to be friends the next,” he informed her.

Damian continued: “It would be selfish of me to marry you today knowing, as much as you tell me you’re ready, I see that you’re not.”

Why Damian didn’t need to marry Giannina on ‘Love Is Blind’

On the day of their wedding ceremony, it appeared the primary cause Damian didn’t need to undergo with marrying Giannina was that he felt she wasn’t prepared. In an interview with the Love In Sight podcast that aired on April 14, Damian says he stated “I do not” as a result of he wished to provide him and Giannina an actual likelihood at being collectively, and he felt the easiest way to do this can be with out the strain of getting married so quickly.

“I’m gonna have to make the hardest decision here today no matter how hard it is in the moment for us to hopefully survive and thrive outside of this and become best friends first, become partners without the time frame of wedding and everything that comes with marriage, which is a house, kids, finances, family vacations, Christmases, splitting them. I didn’t want [those added stressors] going into a relationship with her,” he defined, considering again on that day.

Damian says Giannina informed him that she wished to marry him and that she was going to say sure. He had a tough time believing her.   

“We’d spoke earlier and she said that, you know, ‘I want this now. I’m going to say yes.’ It was honestly really hard for me to believe. We had a lot of ups and downs, you know. We had so many great moments that really weren’t seen. But I didn’t really, when she said ‘I do,’ I was just… It’s what I always wanted to hear. I always wanted to hear that. And I just, it was hard to accept that late in, for me to register then. And if she would have said ‘I don’t,’ I would have still left with her. I would’ve been like, ‘OK, let’s do this together,’” he stated.

Giannina didn’t know Damian was going to say ‘I do not’

In the identical interview, Giannina stated when she requested Damian if he was going to say “I do,” he didn’t give her a solution.

“He did say, ‘I will know when I see you at the altar.’ And that’s not something that any girl wants to hear, but I think you hear me at the finale saying, ‘If it happens for me it happens.’ I was hoping for the best and I mean I still think we got our happy ending,” she stated.
