  • Why don't you propose to him instead?

    You can't make someone propose. He hasnt done it becuase he may not be ready yet.

  • he will when he's ready. Forcing or guilting him into it will guarantee an early divorce or at the very least alot of problems. Why do you "have" to be married, why not just be happy with each other for now?

  • don't force it!!! if he wants to marry you he will ask you on his time. and remember engagement rings aren't cheap

  • How long have you been together? Is this who you see yourself spending the rest of your life with? Is he the only person you see yourself having sex with for the rest of your life?

  • You can't really.. He'll ask you to marry him when he wants to and is ready to..

    Think about it this way.. Would you want a proposal that someone was "made" to make. Or would you want a proposal that came when it was truly wanted and intended..........

    If you are ready and wanting now... if you do not want to wait until he's ready and wants to propose.. You can always propose to him :-)

  • I agree. Why not ask him yourself? You'll know pretty fast if he's ready or not. Its not his job and this is the 21st century.

  • Have you talked to him about your future? Does he see marriage for the two of you? Does he talk about "5 years from now" or "when we get old . . .". Some people just don't want to get married. If he's one of those, then you need to decide if you are okay with never being married or if you need to move on and find someone who does want marriage.

  • How about you sit back and be patient? If he isn't ready he isn't going to ask. Why would you want to FORCE him to propose anyway? Isn't it better when they do it on their own? IF you are so antsy for a husband ask him to marry YOU!

    Sorry but I think it's really manipulative to try to "get" someone to propose.
