After having three children together my partner still has not proposed

DEAR DEIDRE: AFTER six years together and three children my partner has yet to propose to me. I am getting impatient waiting.

I love my partner, he’s the best dad and our relationship is great. He is 32 and I’m 30.

Two years ago we bought a beautiful, new house and we spend all our money making it a lovely home and doing stuff with the kids.

But if I mention marriage, he gets on his high horse.

I even proposed and he said no, he wants to ask me.

I asked if he really wants to marry me and he said: “Of course.” I don’t get it.

I feel like going to the register office and just doing it, so we are married and all have the same name.

DEIDRE SAYS: He shows loving commit­ment to you and your family life so the chances are that he has some negative feelings about marriage itself.

That may stem from his upbringing or other experiences.

Ask him to write down all the feelings and memories he associates with the idea of getting married.

That should help you help him see that the two of you can create your own mould.
