So I have been with my partner for 3 years ands 4 months and we have a 2 year old son together. He knows I want to get married, but he thinks we need to buy a house and set our son up for his life before we get married, and I am fine with that, but he still wont ask the question!!!! Any ideas on how to get him to take that step?

Does he know the difference between engagement and marriage? This is an honest question. When I semi-flipped out at my then-boyfriend that we’d been together 4 years and if he didn’t know now then he was wasting my time… (I am not proud of that night) he honest to goodness did not know the difference. He thought that becoming engaged meant we’d essentially be married. I explained to him that we could be engaged and not even be planning a wedding, that some people are engaged for years. He didn’t know. Men can be frustrating like that. Just a thought.

You need to sit done and discuss your mutual goals and a timeline, and don’t dance around how you feel and what you want. My SO and I are going through a similar situation right now, and trying to work things out.
