I feel like since becoming engaged I must have magically lost all ability to seem like an intelligent woman to other people, because they act like I suddenly know NOTHING about being in a relationship. People who have never taken the time to acknowledge my presence before are suddenly giving me their two cents like it's warranted. The advice I've gotten about how to be a good wife/mother/girlfriend/fiancee has ranged from fairly good to flat out ridiculous. For example: "If you're finding that your husband isn't really respecting what you say, buy some new lingerie. He'll pay attention to you in no time flat. You just need to remind him of why he used to listen to you." Or..."It's ok if it doesn't work out. You can always get divorced and try again." "Never let him see you shave, use the toilet or clip your nails--then you'll be just as gross as he is and he'll lose all interest in you and start looking elsewhere."
So, what's the worst piece of advice you've received about your relationship, wedding, or marriage?
