We have been together for 4 years. I have asked him to marry me and he said no that we were too young to get engaged. He is twenty one and I am twenty the exact same age as my parents. He won't give me a straight answer as to why he doesn't want to be engaged but he says he wants to marry me. Please give me some advice.

In my opinion, 21 IS young to get married. I am also 21 and noticed a massive trend of people getting engaged for the hell of it. If he wants to get married, he will in time. Don't pressure him. You don't want a marriage knowing you forced him to do it, rather than him proving his love for you. How will you ever know how he actually felt otherwise?
Like most guys, he probably wants to be more stable (in job, mentality etc.) before making a commitment like that. There are still so many things you and him can achieve in life before getting married. Especially given the amount of time and money involved (ie. ring etc.)
Do you want to get married just to prove your relationship? because after that the only way you can prove your love is kids etc. Are you really ready for that? I'm sure he's probably thought of that, and I doubt he'd be ready for that.0
