You are not crazy I think it happens to most women who have been in relationships for a long time.  Especially as long as your relationship or even long (me 7 and a half years).

It is especially hard when you see others getting engaged or married on FB and you are still left ringless.

It’s really hard while waiting until your finances catch up to your dreams.

My advice would be to throw yourself into school. he is working hard already to keep a head on finances. You should be studying hard too so that once you start work you can help bring you both to a financial state that the ring could come a lot easier. 

Look at me…I should be taking my own advice. (Why aren’t you studying, Sapphire?)

Work and study, that is how you will make this happen faster. You have to crawl before you can run.

 ETA: SO and I have been together for just over 5 years now. We moved in after 3.5 years of playing house while we waited us both to be financially capable to take on an apartment. then a year and a half being comfortable in that budget, while getting used to living with each other 100%. If money were no object we would have been engaged and married 3 years ago. What I am saying is that things take time, and it is OK that they take time.
