How long have you guys been together?

I dated a guy on and off for 5 years who had a son. I loved the kid. Got very attached. Probabaly stayed around a lot longer than I should have with the father because I wanted to try and make it work for the ‘family.’ The father was not right for me. Don’t play house!

With that said, my fiance and I have been together nearly four years. I got very frustrated with him because he didn’t propose until a couple months ago. I wasn’t sure it was ever going to happen! I stuck around because I knew we are a good team. I could tell he was struggling a bit with making things official because he was married once before, and scared.

In situations like this, keeping the communication going, and open is really important.

It’s good that you and your SO have been talking and have a timeline in place!  Woohoo!!

And I think it’s good that you let him have time to focus on his son.  You being there for him will make you both stronger as a couple Smile
