Jul 21, 2009

We at were just as taken with Jill Zarin's mother, Gloria, on The Real Housewives of New York City as you were. We asked you to submit your questions, and you did! See how Gloria responded:

I love the show!! Love you!!! My name is Michelle and I'm 25. I've been with my  boyfriend for 7 years and we just bought a house. We talk about getting married all the time, but he hasn't even bought a ring yet. I don't know what  to do. How long do I wait for him? Should I ask the big  question??

Dear Michelle,
Thank you for writing. I must say that seven years is a long time to decide whether or not to marry. I really do not believe he has intentions to marry you. I am sorry to say this, but your situation is so settled, he sees no reason to change it. If you are really serious about getting married, you must address this issue immediately. You may be saddened by his response, but you will know where he stands. I hope things work out the way you want them to.  Good luck.
