    Sorry to hear this. You can only get strung along if you allow it. If you want marriage, kids, family, etc, he's not your guy.

They are savvy enough to know if the person in front of them is NOT someone they would want to marry if they do want to marry. I would say you were right if he was 17 but at this stage in the game, it doesn't matter "what marriage means to him". he doesn't want to marry her.
