Getting a marriage proposal

I have been with my SO 15 months...we fell in love pretty quickly and have been living together since March. We are both divorced and were married to horribly abusive people. We have developed the most amazing relationship of trust, sharing, devotion and mutual respect. Things neither of us has ever experienced before. He initially said he would NEVER again get married, but the other day told me he has changed his tune and may...and if he did, it would definitely be to me. He told me he loves me more than he can say. He is all I ever dreamt of and tells me often that he loves who he is around me and how i treat him. I am dying for him to propose...I want to nudge him...HOW??? What can I do to show him that getting remarried is OK, and safe with me. How can I convince him that it is the right thing to do??

  • Why rush it? If he just told you this the other day, then maybe he's just getting comfortable with the idea of marriage again. I think it would do more harm than good to push him. Give him time to feel comfortable and do it when it's right for him.

  • be patient...i've lived with my SO for almost 4 years and he still hasnt proposed. we basically live as a married couple, just without the liscence. we've talked about it and i know he considers it. he said that theres no way he would even be in a committed relationship with anyone but me, much less consider marrying anyone else ever. it doesnt matter much to me because im not sure i ever want to get married again...but if he does propose, i will say yes. im going to let him do it in his own time so that i know he truly means it.
