Re: Inside the mind of a 30 year old man ....
Let me give you my take.
I suspected I wanted to marry my then-girlfriend after two years of living together. So I decided to give it a couple of years to see how things went.
After five years, I was pretty sure I wanted to marry my girlfriend. I even asked my dad about it. He told me, "Son, anything that important is worth studying on for a couple more years, don't you think?" So I gave it another couple of years.
I was glad I did. At a certain point, it was obvious that we needed to be married. But if I had gone ahead and committed before I was ready, darn good and sure, I would have had doubts.
No doubts now. Been together 20 years, this August. Three kids.
Don't pressure him. He knows the score. But if you try to drag him to the altar, he'll resent it. Let him move in his own time.
