Too much pressure

Today, I told my boyfriend of two years that I wanted to get married eventually, and there's no way to talk me out of it. He broke up with me immediately. FML

"There's no way to talk me out of it" sounds a bit like an ultimatum. That's why he dumped you, you weren't giving him a choice...

Better now than 4 years down the road. Always be clear about expectations. At least he didn't string you along.

She communicated her relationship goal. If that's important to her, she SHOULDN'T compromise. And it was opposite HIS wants, so he shouldn't compromise on this either. They simply weren't long-term compatible. Nothing wrong with that.

Who says it was opposite his wants? Maybe he could have been convinced if he hadn’t been approached with an “I decided this big thing for your life and you don’t get to have a say in it!” I know I wouldn’t take kindly to it regardless of what I actually want or don’t want.

It sucks but this is probably the second best outcome in this situation

what's the first best, it better not be a no choice marriage that is eventually loveless

Best was that he also wanted to get married eventually.

So, there was a way after all. Who would have thought...

I'll never get that. This isn't the Middle Ages anymore. What's with that marriage thing ? What about feelings ? Two people loving each other shouldn't be happy together because one wants to get married and the other one doesn't ? Seems like marriage has more value than feelings. No wonder the guy dumped her ! Totally deserved it.
