Engaged & Proposals
We don't really get the ball and chain comments. But when I tell people im engaged the first words out of their mouths is "and how old are you??, and "you want to ruin your life this early" . Yes im young, 21, but really these comments need to stop!, It drive me nuts! At the beggining I felt like I had to validate why we were getting married, not I just say "old enough to get married'. haha then they begin pulling heir foot out their mouth!
I've found the best reply to an innappropriate comment is:"Pardon?"
When they reply, just say "That's what I thought you said" with as much disdain or as little as you deem appropriate.
I totally agree! My fiance gets the 'run while you can' speach. He always come home and tells me about it while laughing at them. Just because you are unhappy doesn't mean we are! We also get the 'oh, you'll get there' speach A LOT! Seems like misery loves company and because we have an adult relationship, people just can't understand why we don't fight more and have never broken up!! What I get the most is wedding planning advice! It seems like the ones that tell you 'make sure you do what makes you happy and don't listen to anyone else' are the ones telling me what to do. I actually had a friend tell me my fiance was too involved in the wedding planning. Are you serious!?! It's not the wedding planning that is stressful, it's the people around us thare are stressful hehe At least it keeps us entertained LOL
