A break in the relationship.
Break is short cut for break up in relationships. If you want to take some time totally away from a person, it is not entirely as most people think, To figure things out, To think about what is going wrong. In most cases it is not going to help in getting back to each other. It will make the next process, the break up, easier.
You are very wise to consider your options and your "readiness" for marriage. You two are about to enter a rather transformative period in your life, by finding your place in the world, as individuals and as a couple. But before you make any major commitments I would suggest you take a "break". Heres what I mean, talk to your boyfriend/girlfriend and let them know how much you love them, and make sure he understands your feelings havent changed and you feel secure in the love and friendship you two share. You only want to make sure you give each other a chance to be independent outside of the relationship, and before you make any serious commitments. You dont want to fall into marring him, because it sounded like a good idea at the time. You two need to walk boldly towards your future together. One of the only ways you can do this is by "dating" other people. With the intention of find your identity outside of the relationship. In college, its so easy to create your own relationship bubble. Taking a break will help you see the world. Before anyone makes a major commitment like marriage, each person should know how to survive on their own, by having their own friends and interests. This "habit" will help you have a healthier marriage, because you will not become a co-dependent relationship, instead, each person has the space to bet themselves and have a healthy support system within and outside of the marriage.
