Sorry, didn't mean to offend you about the pregnancy comment but I have seen a lot of women who have gone this route and things didn't work out to their expectations. Good to hear your opinion on that. Shows you've got your head screwed on right. I hate to see women compromise in hopes that the man their with will propose one day. I don't have a crystal ball but I think regardless of age he would have proposed by now. If you think about it you could still be engaged for quite a while before the actual wedding too. Statistically couples that live together before marriage have a higher divorce rate. I live here in Toronto, Canada and yes lots of couples live together before marriage but maybe that's the problem now? Years ago it was marriage then cohabitation. I think a lot of women settle and decide to "play house" before marriage and then wonder why their man won't commit. Seems to be the norm now. I also did live with my soon to be ex husband but I honestly never wanted to marry. He actually had to ask me three times before I said yes. I was quite happy living with him. Anyways, I honestly do hope it works out for you. Everyone deserves to be happy.
