My daughter is about to be five and her father and I were together for four years and separated now for three years. During the three years her father and I have maintained a relationship that still functions as if though we are together, yet we are not. My daughter has gotten use to us doing family trips and spending weekends together. She has recently been on this fix of asking why we are not married. Why we do not live together. When are we getting married. Sadly, I have the same question. I know we are no longer in a relationship but we act as if we are in every aspect... accept the actual commitment. I do not know what to do. I know I need to stop for my own sanity since he does not want to get back into a relationship. But, how can I? What will this do to my daughter? I'm sooooo lost!!!!
