I’m so sorry you are feeling this way! I am in a kind of similar situation; my SO and I have been dating for a little more than 2.5 years, and know we want to be married, but are waiting for a “better time” to get engaged; he’s starting a business and it’s not stable yet. It takes a lot of his time and he isn’t earning enough to be in a good financial position to consider paying for a wedding, family, etc… I am finishing up my MA and it’s taking longer than expected, so that’s holding me up from jump-starting a career and earning enough to support us as a family unit. It’s frustrating because we both feel like we are ready to move forward with our lives, but also know it would be irresponsible of us to jump into marriage when we want a (modest- but it will still cost money!) wedding and to be financially stable as a couple. 

I know how much it sucks feeling like you have to wait on a situation that has nothing to do with love and how you feel about one another to determine when you can marry, but remember that you guys are laying a good, solid foundation for your future right now, which is the mature thing to do! You’re still moving towards building a strong and happy marriage by working towards some goals right now, even if it doesn’t feel like it! Good luck with everything!
