When will he ask me to marry him?

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.

I have been with my man for 8 years now also. We are technically engaged, but there are no plans on the horizon for the marriage. For us, it is mutual at this time as we have other issues that need to be ironed out. However, neither of us has been married before, so we don't have that issue. It sounds like you two might need to have a heart to heart where you tell him how you feel, why, and that you really do want to get married-and soon! Maybe he just doesn't really it's such a big deal to you. My experience has shown me that me can be fairly dense at times.
