paige1992:  It sounds like you’re headed in that direction. He’s mentioned seeing you in his future, you’re meeting his family and he’s brought up marriage and kids…This is a great start. IMO, if you’re comfortable with what you have and where you both are and you feel ready to take that next step (or even considering doing so), then have that conversation. I would do this gradually, try and slip in conversations about what future plans may be in store for the both of you and try to feel the situation out when you do. If he’s open to having a serious discussion, then great! If he seems to be dodgy, then give him some time to ease into it. And just because he bought a dirt bike, doesn’t mean hasn’t/isn’t saving up for bling! I have been with my SO for 6 years! We went through a 10 month deployment and he came home from Afghanistan last June! Coincidentally enough, my bf also purchased a new motorcycle when he got back and though we are both financially stable, I didn’t think he’d be purchasing a ring anytime soon. I accidentally found out that he did…so don’t rule out that possibility =) My advice, enjoy your time together…you’ll know when that time is right. Good luck and happy to hear your bf got home safely!

  • Wedding: April 2015

We talked about it a lot, but not so much that I irritated him lol! I knew it would be coming once I got my job last summer and the nwe moved in together. We got engaged on our 8th anniversary about 10 days ago and before Christmas, I had mentioned that I would prefer it to be before then. I didn’t know when exactly. However my grandfather died on March 1st so we had to iscuss it  quite explicitly as neither of us felt comfortable with it being so close to the funeral; we agreed to postpone. I never expected it to be on our actual anniversary though!

I have to agree! It is nice to hear from other women/men who know what it’s like to have a loved one in the service. It would be nice to have a thread for that…I should start one. Anyway, I’m sure it’ll all work out. I wouldn’t imagine it going anywhere but forward, especially since he’s spoken freely about having kids and other possibilities in your future together. Good luck with everything…keep us in the loop!
