My friend Erin really likes the guy she has been dating for the last few months. She has even managed not to freak out when he started making plans for the holidays. Things are going so well, in fact, he brought up the M word. Unfortunately, the discussion did not go as she would have wanted. Erin’s man is anti-marriage.
She says she understood the point he was making about the divorce rate, unhappy married people doing crazy things to each other, etc. She had her own phase of being skeptical about marriage, truth be told. When he said that he had no interest in jumping the broom, she was still very disappointed. He does not seem to have an issue with committing to one person, though. He is “nestles” quite naturally with her. He has been consistent and focused on their relationship. He just let her know that marriage is not a priority for him.
What do you do when you are dating someone who is skeptical about getting married. If you know for sure that it what you want, should you be willing to wait until they come around to the idea?
Have you ever met someone who is a little skeptical about getting married? Did they ever change their mind?
