How Long is Too Long to Wait for a Marriage Proposal? By Miss Know It All

Miss Know It All
Recently, I was watching a TV talk show, and a guest had asked the host to help her boyfriend propose to her.

She described how she cooks, cleans, and meets all of his needs, believes he is the one and wants to spend the rest of her life with him, as his wife.

He claimed that he loves this woman with all of his heart, but the explanations he made as to why he had not propose to her will provide you with a clue that marriage for him is not really in the cards. Some of the reasons he gave were as follows:

I see myself with her but not married to her right now.

I am afraid it will not work.

I like our relationship just the way it is.

Since both of us have been married before, I want to make certain this is what we really want.

She is a fine woman who motivates and believes in me, except there are some financial problems that she will have to deal with first before considering marriage.

She has heard these rationalizations for over five years, and up until now, he has not proposed to her, and she very much wants to get married.

One may ask, “How long is too long to wait for a marriage proposal.” The answer is simple. “Why buy the cow when you get the milk for free?”

You may think I am being facetious, but it does not take a clairvoyant to see the outcome of this relationship.

If a man likes the present relationship just the way it is and you do not, there will be no proposal.

Going on national TV and begging a man to put a ring on your finger, after five years living together, will not be sufficient. If you want that ring, you must demand it. Moreover, if he refuses to commit to marriage, then it is time to say good-bye.

Newsflash: He did propose to her on the show, but I did not see him put a RING on her finger. Do you believe this couple will get married? Let us know by leaving your remarks in the comment box.
