So-I just read a post that someone put up in 2010 about the same issue. I feel like I am alone sometimes in this situation because I don't have a lot of friends that can relate. They have all gotten married. I have been in a serious relationship with my man for over 8 years now and we have a beautiful 2 1/2 year old daughter together. We both told eachother that we fell in love at the same time really early in the relationship and we have been through a heck of a lot together. We have been living together for almost 3 1/2 years and are very comfortable with eachother and we act like we are married; we know all the ins and outs and ups and downs of eachother. He's such a good man and I have asked him several times when? when? when? He said he doesn't want to rush things because that's what he did earlier in life and made mistakes (married 2 times previously). I sometimes feel ok with it and other times it hurts to even think about it because I don't know if it's me or if he really is scared since he jumped into it before too early.
