My boyfriend and I have been dating for 5 years and no proposal. He has 2 girls ages 25 and 23 who both still live at home.My boyfriend and I have been dating for 5 years and I'm more confused then ever. When we met I had emotional walls built up and didn't want a relationship.I am 40 and he is 48, we have both been previously married and both of our marriages lasted 10 years to really **** people. After a few months of dating and spending everyday together he confessed that he was falling for me and that I would have to break down the walls or he couldn't see me anymore.
He can quote divorce rates off the top of his head.
He treats his daughters like they are still little kids. He is a little conscious of his weight and I suggest that we go walk in the afternoon. Always has excuses not to go..his daughter mentions they should go walk and he goes.
I truly love his girls and they like me and confide in me alot but feel like they are more his partner than I am. We do talk and text daily and I still get the butterflies in my stomach when I see him.
The next was how remarriage in the eyes of God is wrong and you are committing adultery if you do remarry.
Did some research and because both of our spouses had affairs that allows us to remarry.
Told him what I found then he proceeds to tell me that he would have to go in front of the Vatican to ask his first marriage be "annulled" but by doing that then his children ( remind you they are grown) would become ****.
I asked him what he feared about marriage and he said it felt suffocating.
After close to a year of dating and seeing each other everyday we found out his thyroid needed to be radiated. The first change was no longer staying the night with each other.
His reason is that he can't sleep comfortably in the same bed.
