Guys give it to me straight. I have a girlfriend of mine who's been itching to get married since the day I met her. She's been with her guy almost 6 years and just found out she's engaged. Before then I was convinced he was stringing her along with excuses " I'm not ready, I need to get my money right"...all the while he's worked for some of the most prominent companies in town and bought a house. I always kept my opinion to myself as it's not my place to voice my opinion unless asked but I can't help but think he's settling and tired of hearing her ask when are they getting married.I'm happy she's happy, but couldn't see myself waiting 6 years for a guy to realize what's in front of him.
Disclamer- the couple is 31 yrs/ ea. - not cohabitating/not intimate (or so she's said) Information that was offered not asked!
My question is: I thought if a guy is truly feeling you and wants you he's not wasting time, let alone 6 years. Period. If he wants you he'll make you his wife quick. Maybe I'm wrong. Thoughts?

A guy will not rush in to a marriage and will preferably find the right woman. I know I won't rush into a marriage just because a girlfriend or girl wants to get married. And yes she can be pushy. However, what bother me is that they are not cohabitating or intimate. It does make sense to me in this century that a man would not want to be intimate with his girlfriend of 6 yrs, let a lone a fiance. And now a days people are living together to "get the feeling" of what I would call "premarriage". To see if you really want to be with that person for the rest of your life.lol Unless he is very old fashioned, I would think he is just doing to make her happy, or someone happy, and I fear that in the future their marriage may not be a solid one. He may end up finding that special secretary if you know what I mean. A man would put his heart out for a woman physically, intamately, and wouldn't care about money if he wanted to be with her. In fact money wouldn't be brought up until it was time for settling down for a marriage life, not becaue he is trying to rake up big bucks from some company.2
