Boyfriend Wants to Wait Until We're Older For Marriage

"Live-In Boyfriend Wants to Get Married in Our 40s!"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

He's 26 and I'm 28. We've been living together for 4 years. Since day 1 I told him I wanted to get married by 30. He just told me he thinks it's something that people should do in their 40s, even 50s.

I really love him, I don't want to lose him, but to me it is very important to get married sooner bc I don't feel comfortable just living together with him. I don't know what to do, I think I'll never find someone like him if I lose him, but it is a big deal to me to just live together. He says he doesn't want to lose me either but he just don't want to do it yet.


Is this a deal breaker?
