So, my bf and I have been together coming up on 5 years in July. I will turn 28 in 2 weeks and he turned 26 in March. We’ve discussed marriage after my old debt-credit card, medical bills, etc., are wiped off my record-which will be later this year, we live together and have for the majority of our relationship-we also had been friends for many years before we were together-and do share financial information and all of the important things as such. We’ve discussed ideas and what we want for the future and wedding-I’d rather visit the courthouse and save money for other things but he wants the whole to do but I’m willing to compromise with a smaller wedding-and since we have been together as long as we have, I lately wonder if I should ask about his thoughts on a timeline of when we might get engaged. He has been previously engaged and may not feel it is as big deal as i do but I’ve only had one other semi-serious relationship that was horrible, so to me it is important. I’ve shown him the types of rings I like and even particular rings that are local as well as online, so he knows what I would like. I don’t pressure him and we are completely comfortable talking about these things, I just again wonder should I bring it up or wait a little longer to think about it.
Sorry for the length for my first post. Thanks for any helpful thoughts. 🙂
Edit: I wasn’t sure if this should be in waiting or relationships.
