Today, my aunt informed me that my dad thinks my boyfriend is a loser deadbeat because he hasn't proposed to me after two years of dating and co-habitation. He hasn't asked because I already made it very clear I have no interest in marriage. FML

#57 Marriage seems pointless to me. If I love someone, I don't need a piece of paper to prove that I'll stay with that person forever. I'm also not interested in the expenses a marriage brings.

Some people dislike the institution itself. It's perfectly possible to have a long-term relationship/commitment that functions exactly like marriage in all but name.

So make that clear to your father. You never want your parents to not have a good relationship with your partner, especially over something like this.

Tell your dad about it, if you know the true reason don't be mad at him for it. Oh and there is probably a joke or pun to be discovered but I won't sniff it out...

As others have suggested, you should explain things. Explain that your boyfriend is secretly quite wealthy and doesn't want to share ownership of his riches, and that you've been slowly whittling away at his detached exterior, convincing him that you're the only one who will ever TRULY love him. You expect concession and a subsequent proposal any day now.

Your boyfriend won't seem like a loser, and your father will be proud of his cunning daughter!

Lying to her father would only make things worse! This is some of the worst advice I've ever seen. She's way better off telling the truth rather then making this 1000x more complicated then it already is.

I assume it takes years of practice and dedication, but given enough time, you TOO could take my comments seriously, FSG!

I blame college for my absence. But, hey, at least somebody called me Trip. That's pretty cool.
