Please slow down in your decision to marry. You may love each other but your relationship isn’t balanced enough yet for you to commit to a life together. A healthy relationship is not this one-sided. Spend more time together. See if this man is willing to learn how to be less self-centered and more willing to try to understand your feelings. I don’t know what kind of messes he makes. I do know that being a healthy adult means taking responsibility for one’s mistakes and not shutting out the people who love you.
I wish you well.
