I have a 2 year old baby girl Josie, with my boyfriend Joe

Customer Question

I have a 2 year old baby girl Josie, with my boyfriend Joe of 4 years, we never fight we or both open and I am very outgoing, I am a stay at home mom and Joe supports us, he has a good job and good family that has taken me in. The problem is he hasn't ever asked me to marry him? nor have I gotten a promise ring? am I doing something wrong? I cant just leave to teach him a lesson, since we have a baby and he supports us and lets me have basically what I want and lets me do what I want? What should I do?

It is always tricky when one person has different goals than another. However that is not a indication of whether or not he is totally committed to this relationship. It sounds like you both are quite happy. Find out why he has not made this a goal and if he has something against marriage. This may take several tries. Discuss his concerns (as he becomes ready) and explore them together. If you really do get along great, just be honest as an occasion comes up and tell him you want a ring. However make sure you are not just getting the ring without the proposal. The only way to find out what his reservations are is to try to discuss this. 3 or 4 times may not be enough. Don't just find out about getting a ring, but why he has not proposed.
