My boyfriend has recently started to mention us getting married someday. He's said things like he could get the military to pay for the rest of my years at college if we got married and he joked around saying that we will have to plan our marriage around my time of the month. He's also mentioned having a family. He told me that he wanted me to be the mother of his children. He tells me he loves me all the time and he constantly takes care of me. He's told me several times that he's never felt this way about a woman before. He also mentioned that while he's already gotten all my gifts for Christmas, (he likes to shop early) he said he's probably got one more gift to get me. Could it be a ring? I don't know.
Also, he's very close to his family just like me, and we're both close to each other's parents. He told me that he considers me and my family a part of his family, and that he would protect us with his life. He's a soldier, so he's naturally overprotective of the ones he loves. His brother is getting married next year when he comes home from the war, and his sister just recently got engaged. Could he be thinking about doing the same with me? Why does he keep talking about marriage and having a family all of the sudden?

This is pretty common among military guys. Their jobs and time away makes it hard to find someone to be with long term. So when they DO find someone I've noticed the relationships last very long. Plus it's always nice to come home to someone you love. My ex was marine. Lasted a year and a half. The deployment was straining on our relationship. He wanted to be fair to me so we broke up. But we still talk from time to time when he has a moment in his line of work. I have dated other guys since him but he is someone I still hold dear to my heart :)1
