You are going to have to bring it up again, pleasantly and lovingly.

Figure out what you want and explain it to him.

Perhaps you want to live together and work on saving money (maybe you could decide together on how much you need to save); getting married (a simple marriage with a estimated date like a year from now); having children.

If he is unwilling to discuss this or if he won't discuss it realistically you had better realize that maybe you aren't going to get married. Then decide whether you want to stay with him for an indeterminate time until "something happens."

Can either of your parents help out financially?

Good luck! George
