I've never understood why people stick around in long term relationships if they don't see it going anywhere (unless it's mutually agreed they both don't want marriage)...maybe he was joking?
It sucks to think about, but he just might not want to get married. You know him way better than the rest of us -at least I hope you do- so you're the only one who should know his personality well enough to be able to say this was a joke, a cover, or his way of bringing up a very awkward subject. No matter how it ends up, I sincerely hope you can be happy OP.
I don't think people should necessarily get married after three years, but I do think that after three years you should know if the relationship has the potential to last. If he's literally saying he doesn't see himself ever marrying you, and specifically because he doesn't like you enough for that, maybe it's time to make yourself open and available to a relationship with someone who will. His question implies that he doesn't value what he has with you and that's no way to spend your life.
