Re: How long to wait for proposal?
another important thought i had, is I know some people say they want to wait til they finish a degree, get better job, etc etc etc. I dont think thats a real reason not to marry someone-- the most important thing in the wedding/ marriage is the other person you love. Finances, school etc cant compare to that.
when you care about something/ someone, you want to secure it. You dont leave your money laying out on your front doorstep, you put it in the bank..you dont if you have kids just let them run wild, you protect them, etc. So marrying the person you love shows you really value them and do not want to lose them to circumstances, time, or other stuff that can come up
if you continue to wait and wait for school, money, etc you two could end up losing the other. You might get resentful, it leads to fighting, or some other circumstance. After a year or two together, if both people love and want to spend their life with that person, its taking a risk by waiting
