My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly 2 years and we are both about to go to university in different cities, but only an hour away from each other. Recently I've been feeling like I want something more, not really marriage yet but engagement. I don't know if this is just because I want to feel like our relationship is set to last (even though I think it already it's as though I need something to prove this.) I imagine this to be an unreasonable way of thinking...and I imagine that a guy (including my boyfriend) would see it differently. Any opinions?

In addition to what has already been said, I'm guessing you're both around 18 and looking at, at least, 4 years of education before you can hit the job market. I personally think two people cannot be married without one or both of them having a decently strong job. And I doubt a four+ year engagement is realistic at all. No. This definitely sounds like you're young and terrified of losing him because of distance and being unable to constantly monitor him. Talk to him about it. express these worries (prob not so much the marriage thing) and see what comes of that.
Realistically most relationships do break up from HS to Undergrad. But plenty last through it as well. Just need to discuss it with him, and then be the best girlfriend you can and hope for the best. Marriage is a silly option since he cannot afford to support himself let alone a two person marriage until he has a well paying job.0
