    i thought he did the right thing, i know some of you may disagree with me, i mean it would of been nice to see them married but after seeing the fake visions and seeing what his parents are like you could see how his mind wondered abit, you see he love her so much that he could bare to see his relationship with anya turn out like his parents with arguing, shouting, i mean it might never happened but like xander said it could be, atleast xander thought with his heart because he really loved her and if he got married with second thoughts, he wouldnt of been happy because his mind would always be wondering if him and anya are going to end up like his parents.

    EDIT: Title changed from "who thinks it was the right thing that xander left anya at the alter" to "who thinks it was the right thing that xander... ***Spoilers***" to avoid spoilers

    OK, neither of these characters were ever actually on "Angel."

    There is a "Buffy" forum. Just mentioning.

    yeah I was thinking this too. But if you want my opinion Xander was the worlds biggest ******bag. Anya and Spike were a pretty cool couple for the few seconds they were together.

    Along with the reservations Xander was having about himself and his feelings towards Anya, I also believe that deep down, Xander knew that one day, Buffy will die, and there really isn't anything he can do about it. He saved her life once, but he knows it won't happen again. I think he knew that if Buffy did die, he wouldn't be the same. Anya never really understood the connection Buffy and Xander had, and I could most certainly see her resenting him for never getting over Buffy's death.

    Not to be picky, but it's generally accepted not to post spoilers in the thread topic. I know the show's been over for a while but several people around here are watching Buffy/Angel for the first time. Try something like "Xander and Anya"

    I'm going through season seven now, and I really believe it was the wrong thing. I mean, Xander did it in the worst way possible, letting his fears and anxieties take over like that. I know he had fears and anxieties since he announced the engagement, but he should have talked it over long before the wedding. The pain Anya's in after is so hard to watch.

    At least they reconciled before the series ended.

    The bigger question is, who was more of a bastard at times mean Xander or cutoff Wesley?

    Couple of things to note:

    1. I really don't mind Buffy questions in here, as i kinda think that, for the most part, Angel and Buffy go hand in hand. Besides, I'm afraid of the Buffy forum.

    2. I think Xander was right to call off the wedding, just because of the doubts and fears he had. I mean, you can't expect there to not be any trepidations, but he had some major, full-on worries. I wouldn't be fair to Anya, and then find out that it was the wrong thing to do would be a lot worse.

    Of course, the numptiness of Xander is not figuring out all this until the day of the wedding ...

    Funny answer:
    They scare me.

    Elitist answer:
    They sound way too immature

    Somewhat truthful answer:
    Too much games and threads about who Buffy should be with.

    I just have to say. Its tooo much arguing on forum when it comes to couples, they keep talking negative of either charc. Me i like them all in both buffy and Angel series and i dont have anything negative to say about any1 of the main charcters in both shows.

    when it comes to Xander and Anya, its hard to say. Would the future be diffrent? knowing what he had seen. And if buffy and willow had died in the future for example. Im pretty sure Xander would be quite diffrent and not suprisingly angry. What he did anyway was certainly not so fun for Anya, but then again it might have ended a lot worse if they got married. Its a lot of if and maybe.

    sry my english^^

    I think its my first post. xD.
