do you, or did you feel pressured to propose?

I'm in a great relationship for almost four year, I love her, I just hate marriage. In my experience, it's only something you do to avoid dying alone and will eventually destroy your spirit and soul (I realize this is an uncommon/unpopular opinion regarding marriage). I feel like she wants me to propose and I know her friends and family want me to propose. Where she's from, people propose after dating for six months, so they're wondering, but I never want to get married or have kids. For people in long term relationships, or married couples, did you ever feel pressured to propose?

My boyfriend of 3 years definitely feels pressured to propose but not from me. It's his own thoughts that make him think about proposing while I don't think we're ready and don't want to really think about it unless he's willing to have a pretty long engagement. But I think friends and societal pressures as well as his belief that I might leave him if he doesn't propose make him think about the subject more than I believe he has to.

It's something that means a lot to us, so I'm not sure there's a lot of pressure. Timing is somewhat pressured by being in a LDR, but it's about when I would've wanted to propose anyway (and marriage timing is based on a lot of my family being teachers)
