It's not too long for girlfriend/boyfriend - you're right, many people never do the legal thing. And talking about her parents and school suggests that they might be in college, which would put an impediment to getting married right away.But I know an awful lot of guys who stayed in the boyfriend/girlfriend zone far too long, always just assuming that their girl didn't want to get married yet, without saying anything. She can't read your mind. She may not know that you're planning to retire with her in 50 years and drive your grandchildren crazy. Talk about it. Wedding/elopement/handfasting/pledging alone at sunrise on a cliff above a beach, kids/no kids, ring/no ring. Even if you and she never want to go through the legal hassles until marriage is legal for everyone everywhere, get it out into the open that you plan a permanent future with her.And if you don't ever let her know that you plan a permanent future with her, you have no right to be jealous that she's looking elsewhere for someone who just might.
