  • hm... I would not have more children with him unless he were willing to make that commitment... you are certainly already commiting to a lifetime of 4 or 5 children from him. I would consider it an insult that he is not willing to do the same

    if he were to leave you tomorrow you'd have 3 kids and have a lot of trouble supporting them and yourself, imagine if he leaves after the 5th????

    A little gold ring is 50 or less (walmart) a wedding can be done beautifully without spending too much-

    and if you don't have money for a wedding how are you going to support number 4 and 5???? (that would be my question to him- not you)

  • If your main concern is how you look, probably you shouldn't be in a relationship with anyone else. You and him have totally different priorities, he's not commiting and you are
    worried about your appearance and the size of the rock. I wouldn't even contimplate having more kids with someone who I couldn't marry. Neither of you sound mature enough to have kids, and you sound totally incompatible.

  • um. I'm going to say this . he's willing to make the commitment to have children. But yet not marry you . Yet. Talk his cheap. Keep to 1 kid. you want to be a wife not a baby mamma...

  • the man has a plan. That's a good thing. He wants things done right. There is nothing wrong with that. Give yourself time to get to know him better during this wait or you might end up being one of these women who ask what to do AFTER they are married and miserable bc he doesn't do this or he doesn't do that. Find out what kind of man he is and what he expects from you as a wife. Will he help (if you want him to help) with housework and child care? Will he want you to work or be a SAHM? Will he be a control freak or allow you to be yourself instead of an extension of him catering to his every whim? Spend this time wisely. Don't rush things.
