  • That's completely up to you. If marriage is something that's important to you, then staying in a relationship that is going nowhere probably won't make you happy. If you are happy without ever getting married, that's up to you. Personally, marriage was important to me so I wouldn't have stayed with someone I didn't have that future with.

  • If your paths aren't going in the same direction, it's time to take a different path. At least he isn't leading you on to believe that eventually you will get married. Gotta give him credit for being honest.

  • Stick to your guns, don't settle. If it is important to you (which it is) it is worth leaving over. He'll either realize what he lost or he wasn't worth it. Commitment is important and just living together isn't what God want for you either! He loves you to much to let you only experience the crappy version...

  • Yes, if marriage is a deal breaker for you, then you should.

  • Yes, if you want to be married, then let him go. His goals aren't the same as yours.

  • Wow. That's a biggie... To me it would be rough. I thoroughly believe in a good marriage.

    Sounds like he just needs some time to think about what being married is really about and decide if he is ready to commit to you and your future marriage... GIve him time. If you love him, stay with him. A good man is hard to find.
