@dizzykate:  I understand your desire to have the “real wedding” but if you go down to the courthouse, get a license and have a JOP or some other officiant sign the certificate, you’re juy as much real married as anyone else. 

But, you do have to go thru with some kind of ceremony. Getting the license alone is not enough to consider you eligible for his insurance. 

Do the paperwork now, have a “real wedding” later.

Have you spoken to your FI about the fact that things have changed since you first met? That you have been thinking and that this is very important to you? You would think that if he loves you he would care about what you want.

A wedding doesn’t make you married. That piece of paper your SO has no problem with does. He, in his own very practical way, wants to marry you. If you want something a bit more romantic, why not have some family at the courthouse with you and a dinner afterwards? The two of you can pick out some inexpensive rings beforehand as well. If you have the funds for it, tell him you’d like to spend an evening at a hotel or a couple days off from work to hang out with each other.
