Boyfriend or dog? He is making me choose
And I'm pissed. I have a cute little 5 yr old grey and white Schnauzer/maltese mix I've had since she was a little puppy. I've been with my boyfriend 3 years and he proposed in January. He now is saying that I will need to get rid of my dog before we get married and/or live together. Allergies are not an issue. He says that for the first few years of our marriage he wants it to be just us and wants to wait to have kids. And I'm okay with that. But now he's saying that my dog is too much like a kid and he doesn't want me to keep her. He never seemed to have an issue before and just now is bringing this up. I love my dog so much, have a very strong attachment to her and refuse to give in to his demands. I will probably end up giving his ring back and telling him it's over. A couple people who know of my circumstance can't believe I am throwing away a marriage over a dog. But the more I think about this, the madder I get. I think I will choose my dog. At this point, she's the closest thing I've ever had to a child, and if he had an issue with her, why did he even start dating me in the first place? Then I'm told I am being ridiculous because she's an animal, not a child. What do you think?

IMO, this is a huge red flag concerning hubby to be. This says ALOT about his personality....pay attention.
i feel that you can have a pet and a lover at the sametime.
