My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been dating almost three years, we live together, and our relationship is very stable and drama-free. We are both close to and kind of the “popular” one in each of our families. My family absolutely ADORES him and I’m good with his family too. We both know that this is it and that we’ll be married and we talk about it pretty regularly. But – he’s not ready yet, for reasons I completely understand and can deal with for now, so I’m COMPLETELY fine with waiting. One thing I know for sure, you never make/try to make a man do something he doesnt want to do.
BUT – in the meantime, how do you all deal with family members, friends, co-workers, waitresses, lol asking why you arent married or when is the wedding? These questions have become extremely frequent with family and friends, he’s been cornered and questioned when I walk out of the room and vice versa, and sometimes people ask us both in front of each other. I know most of my family is concerned about the fact that we are “shacking up” (as we are Christian and arent supposed to be living together)
The problem is, this is beginning to hurt a little bit. I cant really explain it…
