Unless the current house is being shot up by gang members that just moved in, it can wait. No new house without a ring and wedding date. He’s playing you and if he gets the new house now, you’ll never get the marriage because he knows how to put you off. A man that wants to marry you wants to do it now, not in some nebulous future that may never exist. He gave you a date, make him stick to it or walk.

@Briar_Jupiterglimmer:  I would have a serious conversation with him and talk about how important marriage is to you, and why it is so important to you. While I understand his point of view on money, it doesnt seem like he considered how this choice could impact you… 

Personally I think this should be more of a discussion before any decisions are made. It doesnt sound like you discussed it much, it just sounds like he stated what he has decided…

It sounds like it’s not what he really wants, sorry 🙁

I really, really hope he’s saying these things to throw you off… But it sounds like marriage is not anywhere on his timeline.

@Briar_Jupiterglimmer:  Would he be expecting to put the house in both names if you were to buy a new house?  That would be one good question for him.  If you aren’t going to be a major part of that…and the decision…I’m sorry but I would walk!

@Briar_Jupiterglimmer:  It’s one thing for him to prioritize those things if wedding and an engagement wasn’t even on the table, but to get your hopes up and then take it back, I would be devastated too! My biggest pet peeve is when people say one thing and do another.

I’m not usually one for ultimatums, but I do think there is nothing wrong with wanting a certain level of commitment before buying a house together. My SO wants to go to grad school and get his PhD which could take us anywhere in the country. We’ve been together 3 years and I told him I didn’t want to pressure him, but that I wasn’t comfortable moving somewhere to chase his dreams without getting married here at home where all of our family and friends could be a part of it. He totallly understood. I think saying something simliar is totally justified in this situation, especially since you’ve already talked about a future!

@Briar_Jupiterglimmer:  Then tell him that you don’t want a new house, until you’re married.

What’s wrong with the house you have? Why doesn he want to sell it?

I think he’s making excuses, tbh

@Briar_Jupiterglimmer:  Does he expect you to buy a house without a serious committment?  Also, did he decide on a new house without you?  If that was the case I think I would be preparing to move on since he really does not seem to value you as an equal partner in the relationship.

Sorry to hear your situation. I don’t know your situation at all other than what you’ve written here, but I have to honestly say that it does seem like he is making up excuses to not get married. I don’t think he’s ready to get married, otherwise he would have proposed. As far as what is holding him back, I have no idea. I hope you two sort it out, even if it means leaving the relationship for new and better opportunities.
