Meredith Goldstein on love and relationships
i have two questions. how long should you wait for a man to propose. i've been with my boyfriend for almost 10 years. we own a house but he says he doesn't want to get married until we fix our issues. secondly, how long is too long to go without sex. we stopped having sex about 3 years ago. it has become the norm for us.

Pumice to austerity
Keep callousness close
Alexis - I say GET OUT! I wouldn't wait more than two years for a man to propose, not to mention ten years!
Also, the lack of sex is really saddening. Do you think he is getting it somewhere else? Are you?
Why are you still together - because of the joint property you own?
I think you should write a letter to Meredith so she can give you some GREAT advice, and so the readers may chime in.
Best of luck!

don't wait for the man to propose.how sad yif you're waiting.
asking a man for his hand in marriage on Sadie Hawkins day is still very romantic.
"Callousness and insolence bring to bare unanimous social condemnation, while the simple efforts of politeness are admired; even in those who are otherwise despised." -
Not enough information here.
Why do you want him to propose? You're already in sexless relationship. Why do you think a proposal would change this? And the only way to "fix issues" is to see a competent therapist that gives you tools to repair for relationship and you both seriously use these tools to make "repairs."
And if you are seeing a competent therapist, why are you asking Meredith and her legion of opinionated followers a question this profound and life changing? If you aren't seeing a therapist, how did you and mr Co-House owner think issue would be fixed?
Sounds to me that you gained some weight, and he is probably getting it somewhere else. sorry, sad but true
