Nils replied to Jake R.'s discussion Dealing With Engagement/Marriage Pressure From Girlfriend in Early 20s
"What are your reasons to talk about marriage with her if you do not intend to do it now? I think your girl is right to wanting to get married right after the engagement... Think about it. Why engage if marriage is three, four years away? Just to…"

"You need to talk about what your plans are as a couple after marriage.  It makes sense to me that she would like to secure your bonds.  I did much the same with my wife when I was getting done with my undergrad.   But we also had a…"

Steve Dallas replied to Jake R.'s discussion Dealing With Engagement/Marriage Pressure From Girlfriend in Early 20s
"I don't remotely understand super long engagements. When you ask her to marry you, be ready to marry. Finances, school, jobs, there is always going to be something going on, something that could be better, something that could be more ideal."
