it is as simple as saying this, "I DONT WANT TO MARRY YOU".   once you say that, its not your problem.  he knew what he was doing and he was trying to pull a fast one on you by making things go so fast that you didnt have a chance to stop it.  luckily, you woke up just in time.

Please do not marry this guy until you have met his children.  You should also try to talk to one of his exes.  Something is wrong with this picture.  Why does he want to get married so fast?   What is his reason for rushing?

If he is getting mad at you for hanging out with your friends now, just think how it will be when you are married.  You will not have any friends because he will try to keep you from them. 

You are young and there will be other guys.  Please take your time.  Take lots of time.

Age isnt anything. Im 24 and my df is 37. For me i broke his rules. And had i been divorced we would have been married by now

Why is he in a rush to get marry? Y'all fighting ain't a good sign or start. This man got 3 kids by three different females. Don't put your dream on hold for him. If he can't compromise now? The marriage ain't gonna last. Y'all need to slow down, and really get to know each other. You are still young and vulnerable. B

Are you guys on the same page about religion? Politics? Child rearing practices? Does he have a criminal record? What are his friends like? What are his hobbies? How is his relationship with his kids? With his own parents? With his exes? How much money does he make and are you ok seeing a huge chunk go to child support? Does he want more kids? Does he have the time and money to love all those kids?

If he loves you than he'll give you time to learn every wonderful about him. If he loves you he would never give you an ultimatum that involves the possibility of him leaving. That's the ultimate manipulation, to make it "your fault".

Sure, get engaged. But for no less than a year.

You are only 9yrs older than his oldest child..they will not respect you and do you *really* want to be a stepmom to that many kids as old as they are at your age sweetie?
This relationshit (not a typo) will not be healthy...why did he get divorced? Why is he going from woman to woman? You do know that I DONT WANT TO MARRY YOU! Is a complete need to tell him and leave it at that honey

 If he is doing all that already I would be really worried about him being abusive and controlling. He should understand if it's worth having it is worth waiting for and there is no reason you guys have to get married so soon.

 You can't let him make you feel guilty for calling off the marriage. It makes me wonder why he is being so pushy about it?? If you were my dd I'd tell you to back out of this relationship, something is very fishy with this guy. I dont trust him.

Have you talked to your own mom about this? I have kids your age and I would be very worried if she told me what you have told us. Now I'm worried that if you try to break up with him totally he'll end up being a stalker. Please be careful and end this as soon as possible, it will only get worse the longer you let this go on.
