OK...so me & my bf have lived together since last August...not too long, I know. I'm 37 & he's 38. How long should I give him to be ready to marry before I move on? He says he wants to, "one day." Well, I'm knocking on 40 and don't have all the time in the world. I feel like at our age, we should have a good idea o .what we're looking for. Maybe I'm wrong but it seems that if he wanted to, he would know by now. We share a bank account and are in the very early stages of buying a house together. Oh, I have 2 teenagers and he has 1. But I WANT TO GET MARRIED! What the eff should I do?

Many people date for several YEARS before getting married.  Six months is not very much time.  You come off as pathetially desperate.

I would've never lived with him. I would assume that changes the dynamic of your relationship already. I honestly in your situation, do not know. I've never lived with any man before marriage. BUMP

"One day" wouldn't be good enough for me, I'd say goodbye.

I don't live with a man without being married first.

Do you want to get married or do you want to get married to him?

That isn't that long. I think you made a mistake moving him in before marriage. Why would he want to get married if he gets all the benefits without the commitment.

You need to tell him marriage is important to you and that you expect him to man up or move out.
