I need help. I have been with my SO for over 9 years and we have been living together for over 7. We have one 4 year old and are 100% commited to each other. We have a great relationship with just a few arguements here and there. He has some issues and has always claimed we don't need marriage to prove our love and I agreed for the most part but have been waiting for him to pop the question anyway. Both of our brothers got engaged last year and married this summer. They both met their wives less than 3 years ago. I began to feel very hurt that his brothers wife got the family last name before me and is basically a real part of the family and I am not. I started thinking how the law won't acknowledge me as his wife or the public or his family until we have the piece of paper to prove it ( our state doesn't have common law marriage).

Well I think he is not going to marry you anytime soon.It has already been 9 years.Why should he ask you now.I think you should move on.I lived with my husband for 3 years and then he asked me.I knew you feel bad but you should put your foot down a long time ago.You should ve not moved in with him and married him first.
