- Wedding: September 2011
I left the moment I knew that he wasn’t proposing because he didn’t consider me “the one”. And boy am I glad I did… because he was right. I met “the one” for real a few months later. 😉
I think I would walk away after a time, yes. Some of you may see this as overly simplistic, but if he doesn’t love me enough to want to spend the rest of his life with me…then he doesn’t love me enough.
@armychica06: Totally agree with you regarding the social perception and protection. Though common law is almost as binding, it’s just not the same.
I got tired og the looks from people when they asked me about mariage, my age, and my step son. Saying I was my SO’s girlfriend bothered me (I am 31, we got together when I was 29), and seemed really juvenille to me. I called him my partner, but then people thought I was gay, and made for several awkward moments.
With questions like these, I’m so happy that SO and I are open about our expectations for our relationship and the future. Personally, I would not want to be waiting forever only to find out that he has no intention to marry me.
That said, this question is a highly debatable and almost philosophical question that has no clear-cut right or wrong answer. Everyone must decide for themselves what they will or will not accept in their relationship.
