Re: Living together before marriage. Yay or nay?
I felt the same way as you, I wanted to know that marriage was at least "in the cards" for us. At first I didn't think I cared, but the more I fell I fell in love the more I realized I still had those dreams for myself. So I made my wishes known as gently as possible, and tried to just give him some time. It worked!
If you are overall well-matched and in love, and you want to be together, I say cohabitating is a smart step. You will want his support during your pregnancy. We weren't pregnant (yet) but it just made sense to move in together. We were spending all our time together anyway and my little apartment was too small and with both our incomes we could get a really nice place. We rented a house together in Aug and by Thanksgiving he'd proposed. We got married the following summer. And I was six months pregnant at my wedding LOL. I wouldn't change a thing.
