Is it wrong to give my partner a proposal deadline ?

Would you give your partner a deadline to propose to you?

One woman has gotten pretty fed up waiting for her other half to pop the question, so she's taken matters into her own hands.

She explained to Mumsnet that they've been together for 18 months. They've lived together and have a really happy relationship.

However, she's getting tired of waiting for him to propose, despite mentioning their future and marriage all the time.

"We’ve discussed our future a lot and both agree that marriage is important to us and something we want in our future," she said.

She said her boyfriend often makes references to “when we get married”.

The woman and her partner are both aged in their 30s. She revealed they've both been in bad long-term relationships before they met, so they're eager not to waste any more time with the wrong person.

She said it is time to "settle down".


"I don’t want to waste any more time and would like full commitment and to settle down.

"I’m of the view that 2 years together should be more than enough time to judge whether or not you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody," she confessed.

She wants to marry him but is fed up waiting for him to pop the question.

"I’m not keen on waiting much longer than that for a proposal."

"Would it be too pushy to discuss my timescales and expectations in terms of the 2-year rule?"

"Or do I have to shut up and wait it out?" she asked.

What would you do?
