@AmyJCardiff:  I couldn’t agree with you more.  So happy I’m not the only bee with the same thought process as you!  I don’t feel it’s right for me to wait around forever for my SO to decide if he wants to marry me or not…And I won’t.

Who cares how long it took him to propose/marry you. The longer he is with you ideally the better of a ring he should be giving you. Im with my gf for 6 years and I’ve just got her a cartier which i know she will love. If not then she can find what she likes. Part of being in a relationship is giving up on that control. and trusting your partner. Sometimes it leads to a happy ending, sometimes it doesn’t.

I Know how you feel. I waited TEN YEARS until my husband proposed! It was disheartening at times seeing others get engaged, especially his younger sister who hadn’t been with her partner very long! You just have to realise that you have been with him for a long time,and therefore have a healthy and loving relationship. Even though people get married, it doesn’t mean they are completely happy. When we weren’t married or engaged, we often commented on how much happier and cuddlier we were compared to other couples who on the outside may appear to others happy, but upon closer inspection they actually weren’t.
