I'm 27 and my boyfriend of almost a year is 30. The other night he when we were out with friends he made a comment that he doesn't believe in marriage because almost all of them end up in divorce. I do not feel the same way. I want to have a family one day and the only way I am having kids is if I am married first. I'm not saying I want to get married right now or even a year from now. But to me that almost seems the point of why you are with someone especially as you get older. You think about marrying them. Am I wrong? Should I talk to him about this? I don't want to freak him out so how do I go about it?

Some guys don't believe in marriage.
It's that simple.
They can believe in love, monogamy, having kids, and staying together for life. But marriage is an antiquated concept.
If marriage didn't exist, would you see the need to invent it? Would you, around year 3 in your relationship say "Honey? This thing we've got going is awesome. But do you know what it's missing? Government intervention, and approval. We should totally get the government involved in this thing we've got going. Oh, and lawyers! Can't be a happy couple without getting some lawyers involved too!"
You definitely need to talk to him about this. Because if neither one of you is going to budge on this, then the relationship should end now.1
