You can have all the love in the world but if other aspects of your relationship are shaky, like finances, you’ll definitely come across obstacles. Also, the both could know that at some point in your relationship you’d love to get married, but, you won’t get there at the same time. You could be ready now and he only after three years. It’s up to you to work out how you’re going to compromise.

Do an introspection

Evaluate your reasons for wanting to be his wife and make sure they’re for all the right reasons. If you don’t, you could end up in a love-less and miserable marriage, and you don’t want that do you?

Stay committed

Others can get away with getting their partners to propose by being unfaithful, we don’t think this is a good idea. Seeing other people will only push him away. If you stay committed so will he and eventually pop that question.

Have an open mind

If you look at things from his perspective it might do you justice. He could still be saving money for your ring and the actual wedding or building a home for you.

Work as a team

You should be able to differentiate between a man with intent to take your relationship to the next level. Have the marriage conversation and see where his mind is at. He could just be waiting for the right moment and it could be sooner than you think.
