Should you stay with someone who makes you happy even though you know it will never "go" anywhere?
I have been with my boyfriend for almost 2 years now. Been divorced for three. My bf treats me very well and we are pretty happy together. When we met, I was drawn to him because we had similar interests and disinterests, and both of us were adamant that we would never again marry. Unfortunately, I am beginning to have doubts about that, and more and more I am starting to yearn for the "fairy tale" of growing old with someone. My bf is fine with the idea of a long term relationship, even a "forever" relationship, but just does not believe it is necessary to get married to have that. I am not sure I want to "date" for the rest of my life. Although I am content right now, I know within the next 2-5 years I will want more. I know he will never want to marry, so if I want that, I will eventually have to move on.
Is it wrong for me to stay, knowing I will eventually leave, or should I just be happy now and worry about the future later?
