I'm guessing he doesn't see marriage as a big deal. As you said, he doesn't want to get the divorce done officially.. You also did say that you married young. So yeah, I'm guessing he doesn't think much of marriage. Doesn't mean he doesn't love you though, as we see in the 7 year relationship you have.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

It's cheaper to stay married and who knows maybe at the time he didn't have the money or things were complicated. Then the longer it went on the weirder it would have been to just contact her one day to ask for an official divorce.
Marriage probably just doesn't mean much to him. It's not a big deal and it's more hassle to get it done officially. Like you said it's probably down to him just being cheap and not seeing it as a big deal. You've been together for 7 years so obviously he loves you. Have you spoken to him about it? Do you want to get married? If you haven't spoken to him about it then it's extremely likely that he has no clue what so ever and sees nothing wrong with it lol.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
