My long time bf won't marry me and I'm pregnant, is there something wrong I'm so worried?

I've been with my boyfriend for 6 years now and I am expecting our first child in August. One of his cousins just got recently engaged. So I asked my boyfriend when are we going to be engaged? He said and I quote "Ain't no chance of that happening, hahahah." But he was all for it when I wanted us to plan for a baby. He has 4 other brothers that have kids with their girlfriends and only one of them is married, the others well, the one I know more has been with his girlfriend for 10 years and they have 3 kids together. I don't know what the problem is, I'm too afraid to ask why they are avoiding marriage. I know it's not my business, but it bothers me.

It is your business. You are having a baby and have been with him six years, sounds like it is time to talk about it!

You probably wont like my opinion but these are things you should have figured out BEFORE you tried for a baby. What reason does he have to marry you? Obviously he isnt morally compelled and he already has you and now a baby coming so whats the point?

If he said he won't marry me, I'd be gone.

Ummm how is your relationship not your business? that's a conversation I would have had before I tried for a babe, maybe it's just me though.

And this was not something you discussed with him prior to planning on having a child with him?

Not everyone believes in marriage for themselves.  You should have gone over this with him BEFORE provreating with him.
