I'm not married to my SO, though I have every intention of remaining with him for the rest of my life. My reasons for not marrying are many and varied, and probably make no sense to anyone but me.
My "MIL" has cancer, and my SO's stepfather has been seriously ill for years. She is now pushpushpushing us to get married. She knows how I feel about it, I've never made any bones about it. I love and care about this woman, and don't want to hurt her feelings..but I'm not going to get married just b/c they want us to.
I just don't know how to tell HER that. Especially right now.
