Is it ok to ask my boyfriend why he hasn't proposed yet?
My boyfriend and I have been together over a year and half and live together. Everything is really good in our relationship and he says he wants to spend the rest of his life with me and my children. He is currently in college and has a year left of school and says he would love for us to get married after that. I want to ask him why he hasn't proposed, but not sure if I should. I know he has had commitment issues due to an ex-fiance leaving him for another man. And he's been open with me that he's worked on his issues and never thought he'd want to try to commit again until he fell in love with me. We've both been previously married once before and I don't know even why I am so worried or even concerned about the ring on my finger, but I really want to be engaged to him and not sure if I should tell him that. I was previously married for 18 years and feel out of the loop when it comes to these things. How much do you persist and how much do you back off and see what happens. I've even considered proposing to him but I'm old fashioned and want him to. Thank you for any advice on this. I really appreciate it.
