The dress, the chapel and the elaborate planning has never appealed to me, but creating a home with the person I love and opening myself up to that level of intimacy and commitment, does.

I view marriage as a creative and serious life endeavor: Then I fell in love and about three years into the relationship I thought to myself: I understand this person and I like it here.

If you are in a similar situation, I hope this helps you. At first I took his opinions about marriage very personally, which is an understandable reaction.

It's crucial that I recognize I cannot, and will not, measure my self-worth according to his ideas about marriage — or any of his or anyone else's opinions, for that matter. Rather than gripping tightly to my desire to get married or ideas about what a healthy relationship should look like, I have chosen to respect his beliefs and enjoy the commitment that is already present in our day- to-day lives together.

With this new attitude, I enjoy the deep love and commitment that is already present in our day-to-day lives together.

I started by asking myself, Do I want get married one day? Then I asked, Do I need to be married in order to be happy? From there, I asked, Do I need to be in a relationship where I feel loved, respected, and understood?

To go even further I then asked myself a series of hypothetical questions: If my boyfriend never wants to get married, will I feel resentful? Will this ruin our relationship?
