Ive been with my other half for 2 and a half years now. We both have two kids each from previous marriages. We are now living together (along with my two kids) and his kids regularly visit us.
Before we moved in together I made my intentions about marriage clear , that I would like to get married at some point. I brought up the issue about engagement about 6 months ago and he said ‘Im not anti or pro marriage but I think its something that should happen when the time is right. Especially because I have a crazy ex (his ex wife has made it hard for him to see the kids, shes slowly getting stable now)’ he also mentioned he is much happier being in a happy relationship without getting married but he would also be happy to get married if I feel strongly about it however it would be good to get other priorities in order first.
Im not sure if its just me being paranoid but does this seem like excuses to string the engagement as long as possible or am I just being paranoid? thanks
