Yay! Congrats ๐Ÿ™‚ And well done on being able to compromise him from 10 to 2 years. You must teach us all Master Yoda!

I’m glad you were able to compromise. Just some advice though, you may want to look into the common law laws where you are. Even if the house is in your name, if you and your partner are considered common law, and he is making 1/2 the payments, he may still be entitled to a share of the house should you split up. That’s the way it is here. Once you are living with someone in a conjugal relationship for 2 years (or until you have a child together) you are considered common law and are therefore entitled to the same benefits you would get if you were married…

If marriage really is important to you, I would stick to your guns and not have a kid until you’re married.  He’s made it very clear that he didn’t originally want to get married, what’s going to make him marry you when you lose your only bargaining chip (having children)?  I know it’s not romantic to look at it that way, but I don’t think marriage is something I’d be willing to compromise.
