So my boyfriend and I have been together for four and a half years actually a little bit longer than that b/c in january it will be five years that we've been together. On top of that we have 2 gorgeous sons. I am waiting and waiting and still nothing. We talk about marriage, but thats it. What is a girl to do? Any suggestions?

If it doesn't seem like he you are on the brink of getting engaged I would simply have a very casual conversation with him. Next time your future marraige comes into conversation--gently add something along the lines of "well when exactly do you invision that happening?"

It seems to me like you are in that classic situation where you are already practically married--and the boyfriend may have trouble understanding the need to make the next big step--you have been together for coming up to five years, live together, have children together, etc. What will the big difference being married. What is the point? A lot of men see it that way.

If you do take my small tip and casually bring up the idea of when the marraige may take place, try to make it clear that being married is important to you.

Yeah, why don't you ask him to marry you. Nowadays it doesn't matter who proposed thom, any one can propose anyone.

agree on them, hehe, it doesn't matter whether the guy or the girl would do the proposal and you already have two wonderful sons so it is now the best for you to get married.

I'd also suggest to you to set a deadline with yourself - i.e. a point in time that you don't want to go past without a proposal. You can let him know this in a non-threatening way or keep it to yourself, but if this is something that is important to you, then you need to think about it.

As a prior poster said, I'd talk with him and let him know that you love him and are very happy but that marriage IS very important to you as well. Just try to walk that fine line of not pestering but just having a talk and stating facts.

HI, it is amazing to read about so many girls that are in a similar situation about the proposing subject.
I just replied to another post with a similar story, so I will just copy what I wrote the other girl.

I was on the same boat until 3 months ago when my BF
proposed to me on a family trip. One of the things that I did to calm my
anxiety was to give him some hints on rings that I liked, and see what reaction
I got. Now I am sure some of you would not like to push it and would like
it to come 100% from him. But HEY, if the mountain doesn't come to you,
you have to come to the mountain....
So, a friend of mine show me this website that basically you can look at
designer rings and send a hint to your BF, so its kindda cool because it's like
an innocent hint... I was with my BF for 3 years, and nothing...after 3 months
that I sent the hint, we went on a family trip and he proposed with one of the
rings that I sent was magical.
try it, you have nothing to lose.
good luck!!

the site is

Does he not want to get married with you? Have you talked to him about your wedding?If he does not want to get married,it is really a bad news!But if he wants to get married,you can do it!And you have got two sons,he should get married with you,and take responsible for you and the boys!

You should take a serious talk to him, no marriage of a woman is not complete, and if he really loves you, he should give you a happy marriage!Hope you have a good wedding!
