@Sparkidoodle:  I can definitely understand you are anxious to get married. However don’t forget that the beginning of relationships are always fun no matter your age or personal circumstances. My husband and I were together almost 5 years before he proposed. So yes waiting can be hard, but remember there can still be lots of fun and good times with your SO while you wait!

The way I dealt with it when I started to get anxious was by sitting down and talking with him about it. Yes I understand you don’t want him to feel like you are pressuring him, so just reassure him that you already know you want to spend the rest of your life with him and just ask him when he wants to get married. Have a frank discussion and make sure you communicate to him that you are eager to marry him becuase you can see a future with him. I found that this helped me shelve my anxiety and frustration as I felt the relationship wasn’t moving forward at that point, and it really helped me realise that the future didn’t have to be planned to a tee and that I knew he would propose eventually!

It’s only been a year, and you’ve only lived together for a month. You still have a honeymoon phase to grow past together and plenty to learn about one another. I get wanting marriage and kids since you are close to 30, but I think you need to make sure that your biological clock isn’t leading you in this situation.
