You’ve been dating your boyfriend forever, and it doesn’t look like he’s ever going to propose. You’re ready to take the next step, but what if he’s not? He may tell you there’s no rush, you love each other, and everything is good just like it is. Or, that your relationship doesn’t need that piece of paper to be a real commitment. Maybe you are engaged, but that wedding date remains in the elusive distant future. You’re not alone! So, how long should you wait?
Dr. Zoe Shaw joins co-hosts, Darlene Brock and Julie Graham, to answer these questions and more. She offers us six signs that he’s not ready to take the next step and advice on how to make an ultimatum (and walk away if that time comes). You have every right to want to be married. We hope that this episode will give you the encouragement and confidence you or someone you know needs to leave the never-fiancée or forever-fiancée status behind. And while you’re at it, take our ‘He Didn’t Propose’ quiz to find out whether your man sees marriage in your future.
