Why Do I Stay?
I honestly don't know why I stay with my boyfriend. I mean, I love him, but there are so many reasons I should give up. We have known each other for almost 9 years and have been off and on the whole time but steady the last 3, we have a beautiful 17 month old daughter together, and have built a life together. But I feel like he is only with me because it's convenient. I don't feel like he will ever marry me. Does it make me selfish that I want to be a wife and not a girlfriend/baby mama for the rest of my life? I want to marry him, not just anyone. But is it really fair that I give up my dreams because he doesn't share them? We have talked and all he ever says is "It isn't happening any time soon." I am not looking to get hitched at the court house. Or Vegas. I just want the engagement. The promise that it will happen. And if he doesn't want the marriage and I do, should I find someone who DOES want it?
