Have you wondered about when to bring up the sensitive topic of marriage to your boyfriend? Do you hesitate because you’re not sure when is the right time? I feel as a woman, we may be too wrapped up about the perfect time to bring it up.
If You Want Marriage, then Just Bring it Up
If you truly want marriage, then just bring it up with your boyfriend. Don’t beat around the bush. Be honest with him. But it’s more than that. It’s about being true to who you are and your desires.

Sit Down With Him and Have a Conversation
If you’re serious about marriage in your future, then it’s even more important to bring it up with him. Sit down with him and tell him you want to talk about something important.
Ask him what his thoughts are on your relationship. Give him the space to fully express himself. Tell him you care for him and love him. And then proceed to telling him that you want to get married.
Be gentle and calm while you speak to him.
Give Yourself a Time Deadline
If you are both on the same page, then that’s perfect! If not or if he expresses any hesitations, then you’ll have to do some thinking. It’s normal for anyone to clam up a little about marriage, but you should have a deadline or some time limit in your head. Give yourself enough time to figure it out with your boyfriend. But if you truly want marriage and he still has the same stance even after much time has passed, then you need to do some serious thinking.
Don’t let your relationship drag on unnecessarily. Only you know how much time you want to give. That’s something unique and personal to everyone.
