I have been with my boyfriend for 6 years. We have lived together for 5 1/2years. We have a house, bills vehicles, and two businesses together. We are happy together but he hasn't ever asked the big question. I'm getting impatient which I know is not right. We have talked about marriage before but it never goes anywhere and the subject changes. Will he ever propose?

Read the book "He's just not that into you". If he wants to marry, he WILL ask but it doesn't sound like he does really. You're only 24 at most so you're too young to get married anyway-I'd hardly blame him for putting the subject off. Wait until you're around 28 to get married.
I agree with Irish girl-Marriage could wreck your relationship. Marriage is not the same as living together. It's not even about love. Its about committment and responsibility. Staying with them til you die-or else divorce. Its tough. Are you ready for that? Incidentally I'm Irish too. (funny how we share exact same views lol). Nobody in Ireland gets marrried at 24 or less. Well they could but it would be slightly odd. It definitely is like career in your 20s for women, marriage in late twenties/early thirties and then kids (if she wants them) and then juggling kids with family or else just being a real career focused person. Its been proven that if you get married young, its statistically more likely to end in divorce. I know America is different with the marriage thing though.
