Re: Ok when should the purposal come

For me:

1. Exclusivity should be agreed upon when one or both people want to spend more time with one another and they expect to know what the other is doing when they are apart.

2. If that segment of the relationship works out, then if one or both want marriage, it needs to move on to marriage.

or if both want to just simply keep the status quo or cohabitate, then that's ok too.

3. If one wants to marry and the other doesn't, then the one who wants to marry needs to move on and start anew.

It's easy. You don't need a partner 24/7. Get your own life.

Re: Ok when should the purposal come

Im not looking for marriage or co-habitation. But I am looking forward who wants to do vacations, family events etc. In my current relationship, that piece is missing.

Re: Ok when should the purposal come

Together with my darling gf for over a year now. On account of us both coparenting on a week/week basis, we agree that it would be too complicated to really move in together. In the week without kids though, we are living like a married couple - mostly at my house. Vacations with and without kids, family events etc, all as a couple.

I'm actually very happy with this arrangement. Kids love it, too.

Gf, given the opportunity, would move over permanently, that is for sure, but I kinda like the situation as it is right now. Later though, when the kids fly out, I can see us definitely moving in together.

But marriage? Never again.
