Me and my boyfriend have been together for two years. During these two years he's been up and down on the subject of marriage. Sometimes he'd talk about it or he'd say that he wants to marry me one day. One time I had a health scare and that night he looked at me and said he'd regret not having married me yet. Other times he's very against the idea. He'll say that he doesn't see the point in it, and that all marriages end in divorce anyway. My New Years resolution to him was that I'd never bring up the subject of marriage again, and I've kept my promise. Last night though, out of nowhere he started talking about marriage again but ended up saying this: "I'll buy you a ring, and show the world that you are mine, but I'll never marry you. Take that however you want." I'm really confused now. If he never marries me I'll be OK with it, but it's hard when he brings it up sometimes and gets my hopes up, only to be let down.
To top off the icing on the cake, as I was thinking about posting this question my sister called me and said that her boyfriend had just asked her to pick out a ring. They've been together for as long as me and my boyfriend have. Now I'm a sad panda...

Don't be a sad panda. How you told him how you feel? Obviously you want to marry so you should tell me that. If he is still against the idea then I am afraid you two need some time apart. That might make him see sense!
I am not so sure about the ring...to prove that you are his...isn't that essentially marriage to most people that proves that (not all of course)?0
