Jess, sweetie, let me ask you a question, and please think about it and be honest with yourself when you answer.
Do you want to be married to HIM, or do you just want to be married?
If it's the former, then I agree with Dave - RED FLAG!. He may have his own reservations for not wanting to get married right now - perhaps he'd rather you two be financially stable, perhaps he'd rather you finish school first, or perhaps he's not sure if he wants to marry you. He has been married before, yes? He already knows how hard it is. If he's not willing to put the effort in to keep your relationship healthy now, then he's not going to be willing to do it after you're married, either.
If it's the latter, remember this: It IS important for a child to have a father, but at the same time, it's extremely damaging for a child to grow up in an unhappy, unhealthy household.
Tread carefully, sweetie - you're thinking for two now!
