married or engaged ladies gotta question - EDIT in PURPLE
My SO and i have been together for about three yrs and we live together act like are married lol. One day a friend asked me when were getting married and i asked my man if marriage was in the future for us and he said yes but he needs to work on personal issues and marriage is a possibilty for us but not rite now. I feel the same however did u have a time limit of how long yr relationship should be before getting married? My confession is if we arent married within the next two yrs im leaving.
Thank you to everyone for taking the time to answer my question. From what I had gotten out of this is that not every relationship is the same, I have been married once before, he has been in and out of relationships I am the longest he has ever had - even his friends are amazed on how much he has changed and matured since dating me. I appreciate his honesty and his issues that he needs to work on is based beyond not having good role models growing up and he is scared of failing, really don't want to get into it because I respect his privacy, etc... I know some of you disagree w/my time limit I am a planner, I plan my whole life sometimes it doesn't go the way I plan, but I have goals and my goal is to be married in two years, buy the house that we are renting, finish my degree, etc... We are both in our mid 40's, we have children from previous relationships, we are all tight as a family unit and I would just like to one day make a full committment and that is marriage - call me old fashion LOL
