I have been going out with my girlfriend for over 6 years, and I love her. She turned 30 this year I am 27. When ever we meet anyone they always bother me about why I havn't asked the question yet. I am sorry I am not ready to get married. I just finished school, started a new career I really want to have some direction in my life before I commit to marriage. Plus there is the wedding itself, its really expensive probably around $50,000 for the whole event. I believe if you are going to marry someone you should have at least enough money to support them. I don't believe in getting engaged for 5 years just cause you don't know what you are doing. I would to get married by the age of thirty. Why can't people see that I have certain things I want in life and I am not going to rush into anything. Am I wrong?
