It’s ok to ask. Don’t nag, but saying Something like “I know you are thinking about our future, what are your thoughts of when we would take the next step” seem appropriate. You haven’t been dating very long, so don’t scare him!

NightOwl27:  Honestly, I wouldn’t bring it up now. I’d wait until it’s closer to a year (or more) of dating before I would bring marriage or a timeline up. He’s probably thinking ahead and you don’t want to scare him or make him think he’s locked into a timeline. It’s a little early for that.

I’d wait until he brought it up, like you said, and then ask a casual question like “you are thinking about our future? Aw, I do that a lot too…what were you thinking about?” non-commital but may give you the answers you are looking for. Not sure of your personalities obviously, so tailor it to you so it doesn’t sound like you’re searching for info.
