My So and I have been together for 10 years!!! Going on 11 this September. We’ve been together since we were 16 and were both 27 now. We both agreed we would wait to marry until we were in our mid 20s. Will we’ve hit that point and I’m not married?! I know I know I don’t want to pressure him but I’m getting to a point that if we aren’t accomplishing any of our goals (buying house or getting married-NOT ELOPING)where is this relationship going anyway!
Back story: I moved out of my parents house when I was 18 and was on my own until I moved in with my SO(while he still lived at home with his parents). Reasoning for living with his parents was because I was going to nursing school and we weren’t planning to be there that long. 4 years later we are still living with his parents. His dad had a stroke earlier this summer. I know his dad had no control over having a stroke but now my SO said he can’t leave his parents house because he needs to help them out. We both give towards house bills but now we have to take over the payments because he isn’t working and his wife is a stay at home wife. My SO never has wanted to get an apartment but also never took the first steps to getting a house either! I’m getting impatient because I’m ready to move out of his parents house and start our own lives together but now he doesn’t want to! He say’s how could he leave his parents at this time. Take in mind his parents have $25,000 saved in case of an emergency. I would think this would be considered an emergency but thats just me.
Am I really about to let 10YEARS of my life go to waste because I can’t wait? How long would you wait?
