What would you do in this situation? I kinda feel really bad now :(
Me and my boyfriend have been together for 5 years, we have a son together. I'm 32, he's 41 and he's never been married. I'm divorced with 2 kids from my previous marraige. We live together and he supports me and my kids. He just bought me a brand new van and he always talks about moving us into a bigger house. When we first got serious he talked about marrying me and he even told other people he was going to marry me. Fast forward to last night, we went out with friends and she mentioned something about when are you two getting married. He just kind of looked at her. I said, I would like to but not sure about him. He says "Don't get me wrong, I love her to death, I just don't think it's necessary" Ummmmm ok. So apparenty he doesn't want to marry me anymore. I thought we would someday but now he says this and I feel really bad. We were in a bar so we didn't get to discuss further, and I know if I bring it up he won't talk, he will close down like always. So what would you do? I mean we already live like we are married, I don't see the big deal. Should I plan to leave him or stick around? Everything else is fine, we have a great relationship, we have fun, we are always laughing, we really enjoy each others company, but now I am questioning it all. Like I want to know what the reasoning is, he wouldn't marry me because he might want an easy way out someday if he meets someone new or something?? i am confused. I am not sure what to do now, I just want to cry.
