Why won't he ask?
Hi,

I have been with my boyfriend for 5 and a half years. We have been living together for the last eight months. He wants me to have kids before getting married. I have explained that I would like to get married before having kids as I would feel more secure about our future. Why won't he ask me? Do men have a problem with marriage?

I don't think it is reasonable for a man to expect you to have kids with him BEFORE getting maried, and this gives you no security. After 5 1/2 years, he doesn't seem to be really interested in marriage, and seems to want all the advantages without any of the responsibilities. I agree with the other readers, including Loyal
