Is 5+ years long term?Watch
I would say it’s subjective - I’ve been with my current boyfriend for 10 months, lived with him for almost 4 months and can see myself marrying him and building a future. My ex I was with for 3 and a half years and the whole time we were together I never pictured us married or with kids or anything. Why does it matter what other people say?
Sorry if this is intrusive, but why did you stay with him if you knew you weren't gonna marry him?
We got together when I was quite young so I'd never really thought about marriage, and in the end I broke up with him because I couldn't see a future for us! I don't think marriage is essential in a relationship, but it was interesting to me how I'd never envisioned myself getting married prior to the relationship I'm in now lol.
