Do you see a future with him? Have you ever seen a future with him? These are the questions you need to ask yourself.
Personally, for me it would come down to this: Do I truly love the person and see a future with them? If so I'd do whatever it took to make it work in the long run, even if it meant making some compromises in the short term.

I did in December. I loved that boy, so, so much. But we were different people by the time three years had passed. We'd grown up together but our interests had changed. We had different ideas of the future and some of his thoughts I just couldn't understand. If you don't want the same things, I think it's a perfectly logical thing to do.(Original post by Alice__90)
I married very young (21). We were together for 5 years and we seperated after realising we wanted different things. I'm 25 now and I'm just beginning to discover and learn about myself.
You can love someone but ultimately if it's not right it's not right. I made the mistake of continuing a relationship to the point of marriage because I was too "comfortable" and afraid of letting others down. Unfortunately I let myself down in the process.(Original post by insert-username)
I broke off a 4 year relationship back in december for similar reasons among many other things.
You've already said it's going nowhere, your life plans aren't compatible- neither of you are willing to bend for the other. Why waste more time dragging along a futile relationship? You'll only make an inevitable break up harder in the future by adding more years.
It doesn't mean your time together wasn't worthwhile, and it doesn't diminish the value of the relationship you had. Stop wasting each other's time and let it go.

*hugs* I know you'll probably be questioning whether you did the right thing but time is the best healer. Well done, it's not easy to do what you did. Keep your head up, you'll be fine.
