Been dating same man for nearly 5yrs - both of us divorced w/kids. How much longer should I wait?


"My boyfriend and I have been dating for nearly 5 yrs. We are both divorced with kids of similar ages (13,12, 11 and 8). At 43, I'm ready to try again but he has said that he doesn't want to be married because of our kids. And, I realize that our blended family would be far from the "Brady Bunch" scenario. So, what now? I don't want to hurt him but I'm not getting any younger. He rarely if ever spends any time with my kids when his aren't around and our lives are almost completely separate when we each have our kids for the week (we both have 50/50 custody). Do I wait or move on?
