Hi, my cousin and I have been together for 3 years. On our 1 year anniversary, I proposed to her and she said yes. After some time I would ask her "when are we going to get married?". She would always say "soon". Then, about 2 months ago I asked her again. She said soon. I looked at her and said, "we're not going to get married are we?!" She told me no. It broke my heart, but we haven't broken up, we're still together, we live together, our relationship is great, but she's not ready. I know she's afraid to get married because when we do, I'm going to tell my mother about us. I love my mother I couldn't get married (for the 1st time, I'm 48 now she's 50) without telling her. Her parents (my aunt) are both passed. My mother grew up in a very religious house. (Her parents Are baptist ministers) she's more open now that she's older but it still scares my beautiful cousin.she says someday we will get married. I guess I just have to be patient with my beautiful 1st cousin whom I am deeply in love with. Wish me luck.
