I am 35 years old and have been with my boyfriend for a little over 3 years. I also have 2 kids from a previous relationship. I really want to be engaged to him and love him a lot, but when I bring up engagement, he says that he wants to make it right by getting a better job and making more money for us. I told him that it doesn't matter because I am extremely independent and I take care of my kids well. He still tells me that he wants to make it right. Is that an excuse? I figured that we could at least be engaged and in the meantime he can also focus on his career. I don't want to pressure him, but 3 years is long.

Why is it when men have old fashioned morals we complain and when they don't have old fashioned morals we complain anyway? There are some men that this type of scenario would really bother them. Depends on how he was raised. Did his mom work outside the home? Did she have to? Etc. It doesn't necessarily mean he's avoiding anything.
