What everyone else said. You can break up with anyone for any reason. I’d break up with him. I broke up with my college school boyfriend because he wanted to follow Widespread Panic or something. I wanted to start a career.

I wanted to address the line about your life plan though. You said you wanted kids in five years.

You need to relax your timeline. Life doesn’t always work out the way we want. I’m convinced that if you stick to these strict life milestones like marriage and kids by a certain age, you are more likely to choose the wrong partner. Of course sometimes it works out. A lot of times, it doesn’t and you end up either divorced or miserable. Picking a good partner who matches your values is more important than meeting arbitrary timelines.
