Proposal: when should I start to worry?

I am living with my boy friend for a half year. I know it's too soon to worry about marriage proposal. However in my situation, I really need to know his long-term goal. So I could adjust mine. Because I don't want to ruin my career for nothing. I'm just wondering is it normal for guys don't say "I love you" and/or don't propose, even though the girl asked his long term interest? He's around 40s and I'm around 30s. So it's definitely time to think about marriage. He actually introduced me with his whole family but I am not yet. I would like to introduce him when things become a little bit clearer. I am a little bit concerned that he might have no long term interest in me. Because we started as friends with benefits. However, over the years our relationship grew. When I asked him directly he told me that he thinks about marrying with me but I'm worried that he might have lied to me since I'm kind of cornered him. What do you think?

    Personally, I wouldn't even consider proposing until at least two years into the relationsip.
