Me and my boyfriend have been together for a little over 4 years (lived together for 3). He has not so much as mentioned marriage.I'm hoping on our 5 year anniversary he may pop the question.
If he doesn't I'm considering breaking it off, maybe just a break, I don't know. I love him very much and only want to be with him but I want to be able to say "this is my husband" It makes me feel as though he doesn't want to make a commitment. or its as though I'm not worthy enough to be his wife?
Can I have anyone else's opinion?And he does know what I want. I have tried to talk to him about it but I don't want to push because I do want it to be special. besides, it shouldn't be something that's pushed! he should ask because he wants to.and if he hasn't asked yet, well, that's why I'm asking this question =)

I am going to assume that you and this guy are about the same age and young? If he hasn't mentioned marriage, it's because he isn't ready for that step just yet. Even though you have been together that long.. You still have more time to grow and experience life.
Marriage is a VERY large step in anyone's life and if he values your relationship, then he will take things slow and pop the question when he is ready so that things work out as they should. Not because you force his hand..
If you rush into marriage quickly, it will fail just as quickly.
I don't think this is a valid enough reason to leave him.. And I feel as though you should be more patient with the man that you love and just wait for him to propose. It'll come when it comes.. And you'll have that "forever" for as long as you two are willing to stand side by side, communicate, and work through things together.0
