Dear Auntie Joe,

I need your help. I have been in a relationship with a guy for almost 4 years now. Anytime I raise the issue of marriage, he gets upset. I have tried to overlook it but it is beginning to take a toll on me. I am not getting any younger and I really want to settle down and have children. What do I do? I love him and can’t leave him.

Dear Confused Lady,

I don’t know how far you have gone in your relationship with this guy. If you have been sleeping with him, then that makes him see no reason to marry you, because he is already getting all the satisfaction he wants. If that is not happening, then I think he is not interested in marrying you. It will be good to take a good decision to leave now before it’s too late. He may just be wasting your time or just using you.

God bless!
