We have done everything together and went through everything together. He is not only the love of my life but my best friend.We both graduate college in a year and we talk about our future together.Before bringing up the proposal conversation, ask yourself these four questions: Can you accept your relationship as it is, and remove/ give-up the expectation of marriage?Many women are interested in getting married simply because it’s validated by society, but that doesn’t mean you have to have a ring in order to be happy and have children.He says we are going to get married and have a small house but with a lot of toys and a beautiful family.But the thing is I love him so much that I am so ready for my life with him.
These aren’t women who have been dating for two months, but rather women who are in long-term relationships.
Only time will tell how modern marriages are growing and changing from those started long ago.
What do these timelines mean for you still waiting for your man to propose?
I’m ready to have kids and spend forever by his side.
But I know good and well he does not want kids right now and I respect that but it has drove me nuts and I just don’t know what to do.
I’m a believer that couples can have independent timetables from those stated above depending on their circumstances, but partners need to have a mutual agreement and understanding about the future timeline of the relationship in order to survive- and that agreement needs to be upheld.
