When you're in a serious relationship, how long do you wait for the ring before you move on?

You wait until you think he isn't going to make it happen. Then you jump ship.
But the other side of that is that you need to see how he feels about it. Maybe he does want to marry you but wants to accomplish certain things (like a house, good job, savings account) before he gets married. So find these things out and set an idea of a time frame and agree that you will see where things are on that date. If he is still making "excuses" then run away.1

I've dated my boyfriend for 4 years. We've been living together for 2 years now. I hope to get a ring from him, he's already given me what he calls a "pre-engagement" ring. He says it's a ring to show me that he plans on giving me an engagement ring and a wedding ring eventually.
We're both 20 right now and he knows I want to get married early so I'm going to give him 3 years at most. Engaged at 23, married around 24. Doesn't sound bad right?1
