So I've been seeing this guy for one month, we get along very well and meet very often(3-4 times a week). I like him a lot and he says he considers me his gf.
Yesterday we were talking about all kinds of stuff. Then he asked me my view of marrige. I was kinda nervus hearing the word" marrige" so I said I haven't really thought about it.
Is it normal to talk about each other's view of marrige when dating? could this be that he's just making conversation? Was I wrong for not really disgussing my point of view with him?

I believe it's normal but I don't recall ever discussing the marriage thingy with anyone I've ever dated.

If one person definitely would like to get married (regardless to whom; just as an idea), I don't think it's unreasonable to bring up the topic, considering you've been seeing each other for a while and are evidently a serious couple. If you don't have such plans at all, he might reconsider continuing to see you. It might be a waste of his time to get further involved with somebody who doesn't feel the same way. It sounds to me like you're afraid to discuss your views simply because you think you might be seen as being pushy...

Oh I think its totally normal... Its good to know if a person wants to get married or not off the bat.. and whats to have kids.. that would be a deal breaker for me. I remember when I was dating my now husband we'd talk about it here and there and we got married 1 yr after we started dating and have been married 4 years now!
