Ok, so my boyfriend and I have a child, nine months old today.. I'm going to try to keep this simple and to the point ..First, we have been together 2 years, second, he is 43 i'm going on 23 in two months. He has been divorced over ten years ago it only lasted 4 months. I was talking to him tonight and was basically like " do u think there is ever an option of us getting married? If you dont want to, i completely understand given your past history , but its on my mind so i have to ask. sorry if i freaked you out." He gets irritated and says "yeah good job ya freaked me out. Im going to bed now." I 'm just like "ok??? Sorry but i need to know bc I dont want our child telling people his parents are boyfriend and girlfriend the rest of his days" He says "we are mommy and daddy to him, and u dont need to worry about things like that" I'm like "i'm not saying anytime soon , just wanna know if its something you've ruled out or its an option one day" He says "Goodnight i'm going to bed."
My question is...Should I have not brought up this subject? should I apologize? I just dont know how to handle this? Im not sure how I feel about it? i've never had the opportunity to be married so of course i want that one day. We have an amazing relationship as far as we do honestly love each other. He takes care of me and our child to the fullest so of course I do "bow down to him" so to speak But I cant help but think "whats the point" is this a dead end relationship or should I be content with the fact of never being married?
