I think you’re doing exactly the right things now. Continue supporting and uplifting him; he will always know he CAN go to you if and when he needs to. He needs that shoulder, and you seem very willing to be there for him. I applaud you for being patient with him, because it’ll make him more at ease when he does reveal things to you. He seems serious about you, especially since he’s saying he wants to be married within 2 years, so trust him on that and try not to worry too much about the future. 


Also, it IS a very intense thing to deal with, so see a therapist for YOU while you’re dealing with this. That way, you can be honest and learn ways to handle things when he is having a hard time. 

Just saw you are in therapy; good for you!

Best of luck!

you are being very supportive, and being patient will help. i am sure just reassuring him you will wait will be enough, and it will not be to long.

as for meeting his family, don’t push him into bringing you to meet them, cutting family out of your life is a big decision, and he obviously has good reasons. just accept you may never meet them.. having a bad childhood is VERY VERY hard to get over, but him talking to you is great.

i had a very hard childhood, and have not spoken to my father in YEARS. and would never want to talk to or see him again, and would never bring my Fiance to meet him or anyone on that side of my family, and he is okay with that which helps me a lot.

going to see his family may really be too much for him
