My partner and I have been together for just over 5 years. We even just bought our first house together. Our relationship is great and everything is going well, except he wants to put a ring on it. I am very firmly in the camp that believes weddings are ridiculous and a huge money pit (Surprise! Tons of my friends have been married in the past few years and between the showers, stag and does, weddings and the prep for each of those, I don’t even know how I could afford my house!).
I made it clear early in our relationship that marriage isn’t for me, but he still hints at it. As a compromise, I offered to go to the courthouse and get the magical piece of paper, but he wants the whole shebang. My parents have accepted that I don’t want to get married, but his family is pressuring him (even going as far as sending him links to engagement rings).
I made it clear to his family that we aren’t engaged because I don’t want to get married, but still they push it. Help me Beat Breakfast!
