Do you think it is right to give a boyfriend an ultimatum on engagement?


My boyfriend and I have been together four years, living together for 2, and he has talked about marriage quite a bit but can't seem to pop the question. He wants to get his PhD but I'm afraid if he does I'll be waiting for a very long time for what he "promises will happen soon", and the process will put a damper on us emotionally (graduate school was very stressful). We're soon going to have a talk about it and I basically want to say, "If you go for you PhD, I need a ring". Is an ultimatum okay at this point in the relationship?
