Our expert says:
Hi Helen, Bob' GF has probably got it right. Men might say they are hesitant to make the committment of marrying someone, but in a stable long-term relationship such as you describe, there is committment expressed in action and words other than the actual marriage ceremony. But once they are into their comfort zone, they are probably getting all they want out of a relationship, in terms of sex and companionship, etc, and don't see what extra benefits would come from formal marriage. A woman usually can see that added value when he doesn't. A couple of sessions of couples counselling may be helpful in sorting this out
