The pair were in love with each other, but unfortunately Bryan simply wasn't ready for the lifelong commitment.

"Though I'd officiated other people's weddings, I don't think I grasped the depth and the consequence of the commitment I was making," Bryan wrote in his autobiography, A Life In Parts. "The vows I spoke weren't empty. I cared about her. I loved her. But in the end, I wasn't ready."

Bryan also went on to share that they weren’t a good match. Mickey “was a sweetheart. No arguing. No bitterness. We were just mismatched."

Judging by Bryan’s long-lasting marriage, it’s safe to say he made the right choice.
