They're kind of right.. I'm not saying its always like this, but when someone notices their significant other getting attention from a former boyfriend/girlfriend it kicks their romance into high gear. The thought of losing someone because you're not on par with their ex's romantic antics, you usually end up trying to out do them one way or another. Jealousy is a helluva feeling. Like I said it's not like this for everyone, but it is for a few people. I, being one of those people. I hate people being sweeter than I am to my girl. I understand I just way over think it, but, it still makes me try a little harder than I really should have too.
Just be patient, although you already have children with your boyfriend, it's better not to rush into marriage
I think you're a bit past the "dating" stage if you have two kids with your boyfriend. Talk to him about marriage if you want it so badly.
I have a son with my boyfriend of 2 years on and off and my fiancé of 2 years, 4 combined, and we have a 9 months old, we just can't seem to find the time to prepare for a wedding. We have family breathing down our backs, "have a big wedding or you'll regret it, courthouse weddings aren't special enough" but honestly I'm not really concerned with a fancy ceremony. We plan to have a quick private, family and close friends only, wedding at the courthouse, and then a redneck style potluck after party. Just have to get it together finally.
EXACTLY 63! I'll never understand why people (deliberately) have children before they get married! Unless you're one of those "marriage is an archaic and sexist institution and I don't believe in it" types, it makes absolutely no sense to commit to creating a HUMAN FUCKING BEING before you commit to what is basically a contract not to have sex with anyone else. When you have a child, you have a permanent connection with the other parent, pretty much no matter what. I was married to a horrible person once. Luckily, we didn't have any children, so I was able to divorce him and sever all ties with him. It's been 3 years now, and I haven't spoken to or heard from him since and likely will never have to again. It wouldn't be like that at all if we had a child. I'd have to continue to have contact with him whether I liked it or not, and he would continue to bring me and our child misery for as long as he lived.
Talk about obsessive! I would most definitely change my number and avoid him at all costs.
