Ok so I personally have always dreamed of getting married. I even have drawings of wedding dresses I wanted to wear. The thing is the man I fell in love with has this very strong opinion of not ever wanting to get married. He says why should we get a piece of paper just to prove we love each other. There's only two things I ever looked forward to in life. Going to college and getting a job that pays well, and getting married and being a wife and a mom. I know I'll never fall in love the same way again so even if I do leave him I know I'll never actually want to date and just live that single life. Any thoughts?

There are fundamental aspects of a relationship that you have to agree on, or it's a big waste of time. Those include, but are not limited to:
1) Get married or not?
2) Have kids or not?
3) How to handle religious differences?
4) How well do you get along with each other's families?
5) How supportive will you be of each other's career aspirations?
6) Are you both willing to stay in the same local area for the sake of the relationship, even if it means one or both of you have to move?
Bottom line, if he wants to stay single and you want to get married, I don't see how that will work long-term.1
