But for me, that would be the determining factor for when I tie the knot.
Now, I’m going to give you a viewpoint that many guys think about and fear.
You can’t force a man to marry you, but you certainly can inspire a man to…
The problem is, there are many considerations that guys have to make that you need to consider too. Personally, I don’t plan on getting married until I’m ready to start a family.
When you can understand why a guy might have reservations to getting married (or at least, might not be motivated to get married), it will help you communicate better and ultimately get you to a place where you may both decide it’s time for marriage. That’s just my personal view and I’m not suggesting or projecting that anyone else should share it.
Every man has heard countless stories about men getting screwed in divorce settlements.
Now I know that there are lots of counter-stories where women have gotten screwed too, but guys don’t typically hear those stories.
Please understand that I get that and I’m not saying that last part to be sexist or “old fashioned”.
I’m just sharing how many guys think about marriage.) Plus, for the guy it’s not like he’s not getting love or sex beforehand.
The topic hasn’t come up again since and at this point, I am just about ready to give him an ultimatum- either he proposes or I’m leaving.
I’m also thinking of just getting him a ring at this point just to move this thing along!
Most guys have heard enough horror stories to know that tying the knot isn’t going to make a woman any less likely to cheat or leave, so there’s a general attitude that it’s not to our advantage to risk half of our income on the chance that everything works out.
