Thanks. I'm reading through that other thread as I have time. It helps a little to have Mono's perspective on things. It's hard for me to understand the view-point that B is coming from, and as we're both emotionally invested it's hard to be completely logical and analyze what he's trying to communicate.
I think an in-depth discussion of what 'marriage' means to B is in order. I've spoken a lot on what it means to me, but it's been hard for him to focus on what it means to him. He keeps talking about what he can't have, or things he thinks he can't have, and gets distracted from what he's trying to say.
And, yes, he's got to want it. From his words and actions, I'd say he does want it. He just isn't there yet.
I have a lot of love to give.
