He is not yet ready to settle down...

I was listening to what my boyfriend and his friends talked about last night and they were talking about getting married. Of course, his friends are already aware that we are living together for quite long time. I was just a little hurt when my boyfriend said that he is not yet ready to settle down because we are not yet stable. He still wanted to have our own, beautiful house before marriage. Well, I understand his point but as a woman, I also want to get married as early as possible to make it legal for both of us. What can you say about it? I would like to hear your opinion about this guys. thanks a lot.

How come he is not ready to settle down when you are living in together for a long time now? What difference will it make if you marry now and have the beautiful house later? What if the house will be materialize in 10 years from now? Would you still wait that long? Marriage for a woman is security, but before engaging to a lifetime commitment make sure you can stand for your decision. Maybe you should find time in pursuing marriage when your partner is in good mood. But also give him enough time and space to think about it. Goodluck and Godbless.

Yes, that is exactly my point. We've been living together for how many years and I wonder why he said he is not yet ready to settle down. He always tell me every time we have an argument, why am I so insecure? Where in fact, he should be the one to know the reason why. Thanks for understanding and thanks for your comment.

Maria was right, what difference would it make if you marry? After all, you've been living together for a long time. If by "stable", he means you can't afford to raise a child yet, then you can marry and not have babies for the mean time. May be he's not emotionally or mentally prepared? May be you need not rush? I know it would give you a sense of security, but what matters in the end is that the relationship will last. Getting married is just like making what you already have right now official, it's just a title. I sure hope it will be worth the wait though. Discuss how you feel with your partner without making him feel pressured.
