Brother Word,

My girlfriend and I have been dating for 3 ½ years and although we’ve spoken about marriage, she doesn’t really seem to want to get married.  Both of us have parents that have been divorced, friends that have been divorced, and marriage just doesn’t seem that important anymore.  I on the other hand seek to be married, but my girlfriend is content with us simply living together.   She doesn’t see how being married would be any different or what it would change.  Should I continue like this or forgo the relationship and the woman I love?

Sincerely,

Jumping In Place
