My boyfriend and I have been dating for 2 years now and has told me that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. We talk about our future very often (i. e. how we are going to raise our kids..) but told me that we should live together to build a foundation and get used to each other and then he will propose and since we already live together it is going to be a very exciting and smooth transition as we plan the wedding and everything without going through the usual frictions. He says that he would propose within a year of living together and I do trust him but my parents are very conservative and told me that my relationship with them would be damaged if I do that. He says that he doesn't want them to "obligate" us to get married prior since it would be something that they want and not something that we want... and that he is very firm that if we don't live together before then he won't propose... what should I do?

You should invite your boyfriend to sit down with your parents and explain his position, they can explain their position. You should then announce that the three of them have put you in a horrible position in which you cannot win and you expect them to resolve the problem between themselves. Then, you get up and walk out of the room.0
