My boyfriend and I are both in our early 40's,  I've been divorced for 4 years and he has been divorced for 2.  When we met we both discussed how neither one of us wanted to get married again, yet lately he has been showing me pictures of rings and taking a ring from my right hand and putting on my left saying "now your'e married". 

I'm not sure what he is trying to say, if anything.  Thoughts?

I think the best thing to do would be to ask him directly if he has changed his mind about not wanting to get married again and what he means by doing these things.

It could be he has changed his mind about remarriage. However, as Musiclover12 said, it's best to ask him directly as to what he means.

Thank you guys.  I have asked him but he tends to waffle on what he wants depending on what is going on in his life.  The most important thing is that he has told me he wouldn't have made it through the last several months without my support Laughing

He reminds me often how important I am to him and that I mean the world to him.  To me, that is plenty :)
