How long should I wait to get engaged?
I have been in a relationship for just over 2 years and living together for about 1.5 years. We have talked about getting married and both want to. I am older than him and was previously married, he’s never been married. We were discussing marriage the other day and he commented "he's not ready yet". I’m not wanting to marry right now or even anytime real soon, however, I would like to be engaged. I feel like we already live together like a married couple, why not be engaged. I was a little hurt by that comment and now don’t know how to feel. I love him and want to spend the rest of my life with him but then that old saying "Why pay for the cow if the milk is free" comes to my mind. I don’t know what to do.
