@summerlove21:  I totally agree with this and it’s pretty much exactly how it went down with SO and I. I never wanted to say anything or come off naggy or pressuring, so he assumed I wasn’t thinking about it. And who could blame him? Turns out he had been thinking about and after our talk he said “I had no idea you were feeling this way, I’m REALLY glad we talked about it!”

Other waiting bees: if you plan on marrying this man then the discussion should have happy results 🙂

Congratulations! I think this is a great example not of timelines or “shut it up” or any of those things, but rather that being able to communicate is the most important part of a relationship. You felt comfortable enough to bring it up, he didn’t get upset but explained his side, and you came up with a solution. I think this bodes well for your marriage 🙂

I am happy you had the talk.  I have been with my SO for close to nine years.   However I have gone through phases when most of my friends and family have gotten engaged/married and I wondered too.

However I took a step back and thought I am still with SO, we are at a happy medium and when SO feels he is ready to ask that special question then I know we are both ready.  

It actually made me feel better when I found out my co-worker was dating her husband for 14 years and two children later when he poped the question.
