I’m in the middle of trying to buy a home. I’m buying it all by myself. Boyfriend or Best Friend will not be on the paperwork. And I’m fine with that. But because I’m buying a home I’m obviously talking about it a lot. My parents are VERY traditional so everytime they hear certain key words (i.e. buying house) they ask if we are planning on getting married soon. Getting married is really irrelavent since we aren’t buying a house together. But I always tell them, “I don’t know,” and change the subject. They’ve been asking for about 6 months now and we’ve only been together for a year and 9 months. Well, long story short, they’ve completely given up on my Boyfriend or Best Friend. They literally don’t think he has any plans on proposing. Ever. It’s to the point that my mom is now suggesting that the only way we will ever get married is if I propose to him. It’s aggrivating that they can’t seem to trust that I know what I’m doing and they’ve never even met my guy because we live in different parts of the country.

But I hear you. It’s frustrating sometiems. I think families forget sometimes that we are adults and relationships are a unique beast. No two are the same but we are perfectly capable of managing them.
