I'm 27 years old and in a wonderful relationship with a 24 year-old. He treats me like gold and I know he loves me. Once when he was professing his love to me he even cried. And he's not a whimp, by any means. We moved in together (his idea) after only dating for six months and now we are coming up on our year anniversary. We've had our ups and downs, but all in all it's been great. The thing is I know he wants to marry me, and I want to marry him. But he has it in his head that he needs to have enough money first so he can take care of us! He's 24! He makes good money and is very driven but I don't think a person is ever READY 100% for marriage and kids. I mean, there is always something that comes up. Long story short I want to get married and have kids, soon. While I think he wants to wait a few years. Meanwhile, I don't want to "play house" if we aren't getting married soon. I don't want to end it, he is too important to me. But I really want to get married and don't think I can allow myself to live with him for more then a year without marriage.
Lucky in Love, sort of
