My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for about five years and have known each other for six. We don't live together but have talked about it. I have three children two boys and one girl ages 16, 13 and 7. My boyfriend is a very strong minded person and so am I. He is not the father of my three children due to the fact that the father and I separated about two years before my boyfriend and I started a dating. The reason for me choosing my boyfriend to be in our lives is because I saw him as a very genuine, patient and family oriented guy and saw him to have things going for himself at the time. Over the years he has been struggling a lot and he and I have been arguing a lot therefore lately I have been second guessing if I should stay in the relationship. The feelings that I have for him lately has been off and on. We do not live together due to the fact that I would like for us to get married before I make that decision.........financially it would be a great benefit for all of us. I made it clear that it has been some time and it seems to me he is not interested in a marriage yet but states that it is only because of his financial issues. It has been six years and I am starting to second guess the relationship because of the arguing and the amount of time he is taking to ask me to marry him. I've been thinking about moving on frequently. I love him though!!...........What should I do?
