Iam 22 and my boyfriend is 24, we have been together for 5 straight years and have 2 wounderful blessings together. We have been talking about taking it to the next level for the past year now. But he hasn't made an effort to even propose to me. Every day he tells me that he loves me and that he can't ever picture his life without me. Our love is still as strong as the first day, but when i ask him why haven't he made any effort to get married he say well we haven't had the money for a ring or a wedding yet. I've told him we can get married through the court and save up for a big wedding later. He will agree to go to the courthouse with me to get our marriage licence but he never seems to stick with his word. I need some advice.... should i believe that he really wants to marry me or should i give all hopes up ?
