- Wedding: March 2019
My bf and I have been together nearly 5 years. We’ve had serious talks about marriage, buying a house, children, etc. He says I am the only woman he’s ever wanted to marry or have a future with. We have a great relationship. He knows marriage is important to me. Recently, he’s purchased several items equating to much more than the ring we chose together, and has since made it known that we will NOT be getting engaged this year, but maybe the next (even though we’ve discussed purchasing a house next year, which voids any major purchases until signing, so can’t happen next year). We got into an argument about it and he “revealed” he’d been looking at packages at a baseball stadium to propose during a game. There are several things wrong with this: 1. He is COMPLETELY aware this is not my idea of romance and have told him multiple times that I repulse the idea of being proposed to at a sporting event (he says baseball is his first love – it isn’t). 2. He said money has been the issue, which clearly hasn’t since he has made numerous large purchases over the past couple of years. 3. I checked the stadiums webpage – they stopped offering proposal packages 4 years ago, BUT if he were to have done it this way, it would have cost a mear 200 dollars (he’s completely good for it). So he lied.
I’m overwhelmed. What should I do?
