| | Re: 5 yrs...and he's still not ready...
my wife and I dated 7 years before we got married, we waited until both our college degrees were earned and we had good jobs. (married 13 years now)
Do you two happen to live together or seperate?
have you ever thought about "playing the field" if your not married?
worst thing you can do is pressure him, but also if he se's you becomming interested in other men he might just pull the trigger.
25 is middle of the road for me, I think he will be ready in the next 2-3 years, but will you wait that long? if it is love then no problem.
Do you both want children?
