I have been together with my boyfriend for 5 1/2 years and living together for three. I try to bring up marriage and he doesn't want to talk about it. I know he loves me, his family loves me, we get along and I have even asked him to go to counseling. Forget it. He is the kind of man that is stubborn and full of pride. If I walk out that door he is not running after me so I can't play games with him. He was married twice before and they ended badly, his family confirming it was the wife that was the problem( i know it takes two). I was married once before but we parted amicably. His child is grown and out of the house.
I am not ready to leave but wonder what approach other than being patient, honest and up front with him, can I do?
You are paying the price for his issues? Where do your feelings come into the picture? It does take two to end a marriage. It doesn't sound like he is willing to look at his faults. You deserve someone who wants to marry you!
