Bringing up getting married
I'm 27 and I've been dating my boyfriend for almost 5 years. We've been living together for 3 years. I love him very much and I'm happy with our relationship so far, but now I am ready for marriage.
We've talked a bit about getting married, but never anything too serious or specific. I know we will get married eventually, but again, we've never really gotten into the details.
I don't want to pressure him, but I would like to talk about when it might happen. I'm just having a really hard time bringing it up without feeling like I'm pressuring him. I mean, I know I could wait until he decides to propose, but honestly, I feel like it could be years unless I speak up. I just feel he's very content with our relationship now and unless I push it, getting married just isn't on the top of his list.
Would it be pressuring him too much to tell him that I want to get married soon? How do I go about doing this without being too pushy? Please help.
