What if I don't want to marry him but still want to date him?
My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year and a half and we've known each other for more than two years. The other day he asked me to marry him, he was really sweet about it too! I felt really bad when I told him no. I feel like I hurt his feelings. He doesn't bring it up but I feel like I hurt his feelings. I love him very much and I trust him completely, I feel like we have a great relationship, but I feel like we're too young and we've only been dating for a little while. I've been thinking about it over and thought maybe it isn't a bad idea to marry him. I feel safe when I'm with him I think I'm just being a coward because my parents relationship ended in divorce. I never thought I would fall in love like I've fallen with him. Even though I love him to death, I'm scared things will end like my parents relationship. We have a long distance relationship because he has to travel often and I think with marriage it would bring us closer together. I just don't know if I'm jumping into this too quickly.
