Dear nesh, so sorry to hear of this sad and difficult situation. Zane's answer is excellent. he sounds rather young to be having lung cancer. As Zane says, he's probably imself still shocked by the news, and unsure of how things will go --- and understandably reluctant to make long-term commitments before his own long-term outlook is clearer. Take your time, be emotionally supportive to him, and give him time to start treatment ( and he may need a lot of support during some phases of that ) and talk gradually about ow te future of each of you and both of you, may be affected by these events
