My boyfriend is getting ready to join the Marines, and there has something that's been on my mind that I just had to ask him. We've known each other and have been friends for over 10 years (we're both 21), and we've been dating for 3 months. I'm not trying to rush him into anything, but I did ask him if he sees marriage and kids in his future one day. Not necessarily with me, just in general. He said, "I don't believe in marriage. When he said that, I felt every hope and dream just crush before me. I felt devastated. I know it's too early to talk about all of that, but he is someone I wouldn't mind spending my life with. Is this going to potentially shove a wedge between us? How can I accept it? Him going to the marines is scary enough. Now accepting that I might not have a real future with him?

He says it now, but I've heard a lot of men say it lol and they end up in a relationship together forever. Also, just respect his decision for now cause things might change. Besides, marriage doesn't mean shit if the love isn't there. plus marriage states you're officially together on paper. Who knows what could happen. Final word, just respect his decision for now OP it might change, and if you love him don't let that marriage shit overrule your mind. He can change beliefs.1
