My BF and I have been together for 7 years and have a daughter together, we also live together. I want to get married so bad but all he will say is that he is not ready. I do not want to force him but i wantto know if he ever wants tp get married or not and he refuses to talk to me about it even though he knows it makes me upset. What to do?

I do not understand, you have been together 7 years, live together, have a daughter and he doesn't want to get married. What does he call the arrangement you have. You are basically married, but without the legality. So what is his problem? He owe you an answer right away as to is he going to marry you or not. Then you can make a decision as to what you are going to do. He has all the avantages of marriage without the committment, how fair is that? If you really want to get married and he does not, please do not have any more children by him. He is holding up your life, use your mind and not your heart if you have to make a decision.

Seven years? Wow! That's really great! With a daughter and you are living together? Well, what on earth is your boyfriend waiting for? I think it's about time that you tie the knot! Anyway, have you told him how you feel? Have you mentioned how much you really wanted to get married? Have you asked why he is not ready? I mean, it's been seven years that you've been together. What else is he not ready for? I think that you should talk to your BF about this. Insist that you talk about it even if he would refuse to talk about it. Good luck jennaub!
