My boyfriend recently moved in with me and things have been great. I never wanted to live with someone before marriage, but felt it made most financial sense for both of us and we have only been together 10 months.
We have never fully addressed marriage though I have indicated I want to get married. Some of his recent financial decisions have caused me to perceive that he is not financially planning for a ring/wedding.
My friends and family think I should bring up marriage to make sure we are on the same page with getting married in 1-3 years rather than waiting a long time.
What should I say? Should I even bring it up?

lol well before you waste a year or two on him...I would at least see what his take is on marriage.
I would just randomly ask one day have you ever thought about marriage? Do you believe in getting married or are you fine without the whole I vow my life to you thing?
Ask the question but don't make it seem like your telling him to marry you?
Don't say: At what age do you think you would be ready to get married? or Do you think I'm marriage material?
I believe that if marriage is defiantly something you believe in doing? than you are not going to want to be in a relationship with someone for a few years or soo...and they respond with...
Uhm marriage...I don't believe in that...somewhere down the line.
That would be a waste. again that's if your looking to one day get married.
Well hope that helped
