DEAR CHRISTINE: Not eager to get married
Usually the shoe is on the other foot and it’s the girl who wants to get married. Not so in my case.
My boyfriend has basically told me I have another year to be with him, then he wants us to get engaged and to marry. We have been together about two years. I am 22 years old and don’t want to get married until I’m 25 or at least 30 years old.
He is a great guy and I love him, but I am honestly not sure that he is the person I could spend the rest of my life with.
A girl who does not want to get married?
I don’t think there are many of you around, but I’ll give you this: your boyfriend is clear about what he wants, and that’s commendable.
You also seem clear about what you do not want – to get married.
You’ve got to put him down and have a heart to heart talk with him or just put it in writing. If you suspect that he is not the one for you, don’t string him along; set him free.
