I just wish I had some idea of when he thinks he will be ready…. Does he just not want to marry me? I can not tell you how heartbroken I am but I am so angry with my partner for letting me down with this. Some men have had dual relationships for a long time. Now if she really loves me why would she not agree? She discovered who she was and along the way by saying yes to various opportunities. Ask your friendly neighborhood lawyer.

Hi Gary, Thank you so much for your comment. Maybe you should set a time table and if things don't happen by then, make a decision and up to pulling the plug if need be. How long would you want to date a woman before considering marriage? Maybe their relationship is rocky, and they are together for their kids. I hope my opinions are helpful. Most of the time we're happy and things are great, but I just don't understand why he won't take that step. He may prematurely commit to that relationship, without resolving his internal conflict first. They are in committed relationships with two women at the same time, most often without their primary partner knowing of the other woman.
Since then, I've become increasingly uncomfortable with the words. We have been through counseling, have joined a church and we live as a married couple. Keep in mind this man is 48 and I am 43. My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 10 years. Rings and weddings aren't cheap.
Why Marriage so freaking important to tell everyone they are committed to someone. I think there are some people here on the forum that love to try to crush people. Let's face it - women run the show when it comes to the wedding, and the proposal is the only time when the man gets to do the planning. I really can't believe that it's lack of commitment because you two have been together for ten years. Like I said, 30something with two children out of wedlock is just too much of accept as a compromise. He has the perfect opportunity this weekend when we go to our favourite vacation spot, he booked a lovely place as a present too.

Forever Bachelor, whom my mother divorced back in 1972, as been single all these years. I would answer her questions about my thoughts - honestly. He has postponed the wedding once due to a very real financial crisis. I meant marriage was like anal sex, not blowjobs.
Hope this reaches you and let me know how you are doing! My girlfriend and I have been together for 11 months, not 7 years. We argue a lot more and we seem to always kind of argued during our relationship are friends even though I says arguing often over petty things. Sounds like you are compensating for a deflated ego. I'm procrastinating because I'm a little nervous I'll screw the whole thing up. The women eventually gave their men a choice: marry me or lose me.
The only one I feel sorry for is the disabled child of my first husband who was dumped in an institution. How long do you think is too long? No obstacle is too great to overcome, no distance is too far to travel. Being engaged for years is no solution either. I've been with my boyfriend for 11 years and we have two kids. I also grew up in the barber shop owned by my dad and have a great respect for the men I see. You could date for three months before getting a burn in your stomach that lets you know to hold onto this person because they are the best you're ever going to get.
