@MrsGolden2Bee: Good for you!  A timeline is a great step in the right direction!  I’m in complete agreement with you that women should not be so nervous about bringing up the topic of marriage with their SOs.  If there’s never a discussion, you may never get on the same page and remain resentful that a proposal hasn’t come.

Just had that talk a few weeks ago. I thought things were not looking good at all…. then somehow it did get through his skull (just the way you said it!) so I am hoping he  (my SO) genuinely understands and the timeline is serious, not just so we stop talking about it for a while…

I did the same thing. We’ve been together for about 1.5 yr but I had the hardest time with certain things. Mostly living together and fear of being an eternal gf. (before being together I knew of his past relationships) The law needed laid down so he knew my expectations.

Props to you! It’s not an easy talk!

Good for you!  You’re right about needing to just lay all the cards out, I don’t think it’s an ultimatum at all.

A work friend of mine wanted to have kids with his then girlfriend and she said no chance unless they were married.  They got engaged and then married within 6 months.  🙂
