I have been with my boyfriend for 2 years. We don't really have any problems, we respect each other, and of course we are part of each others families. A little after our one year, he gave me a promise ring.
Everyone that I know is always asking... "When are you guys getting married?" It drives me crazy! I believe that even though you are in love, that does not mean that you are ready for marriage.
I guess I just wanna know what other people think about situations like this? ...or am I just acting old school?

Yes, I believe in the sanctity of marriage, but I think it is too easy to get married and too easy to get out. Nowadays people get married on a whim and get divorced just as fast. It's ridiculous. Honestly, I think we should set it up so it's harder to get divorced (with exception of breaking a morality clause) so maybe it would scare some of these people off. What Lfoc02 is talking about is the wedding, which I somewhat agree with, but you can easily bypass by getting married at your local courthouse. Weddings are just traditional ceremonies and that's all. We have ceremonies for all sorts of things that we ultimately don't need.
Anyway, that's good that you guys are waiting. No need to rush into it. If you two truly love each other, you will just as easily get married a couple years from now as you could tomorrow. I think I answered your question properly lol. Best of luck to you1
