Our expert says:
It's a bit odd, and rather sad that you have been together for more than 3 years, apparently contentedly, without having discussed these rather important points before now. Maybe, as quite often happens, you both assumed you felt the same way without feeling the need to discuss it. But as the general expectation when staying together in a loving relationship IS that it will lead to marriage and children ( though obviously it doesn't have to do so ) it's wise, when either partner has a different expectation, to discuss this early on and make this variant expectation clear.
Couples counselling may help to clarify the matter - what exactly does marriage represent to you, such that you want it ; and what does i represent to him, that he doesn't ?
