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…"
