futuremrsoco:  I understand where both of you are coming from.

Try brining it up to him again and expain it will make his deployment a little easier on you both. But in the end, proposals are the only part we really leave up to the guys. It is the only thing they get to plan so i can understand when he says he wants the ring to be one you deserve.

He is probably going to wait until he gets back to afford a nice one.

If I were you, I’d try not to stress too much for these reasons:

1. You are young so can “afford” to wait a little longer

2. Although I believe you can get engaged whenever it’s appropriate despite length of relationship, you guys haven’t been together for a huuuge amount of time where you need to start questioning his motives of stalling

3. Lots of people don’t believe in getting engaged until you can start actively planning for a wedding which it sounds like you aren’t ready to do

3. He has given you a pretty suitable reason that he wants to wait until he can afford to get you what he wants to get you.  

I understand raising a child together speeds up the “seriousness” of a relationship, however if I were you I’d try to just enjoy the relationship for another year and if nothing happens in that year, then start discussing timelines and all of that.
