FI and I have dated for 6 years, so a lot of people have asked “WHY???”…since we’ve waited so long anyway.

I usually smile, say “For the tax break” and move on.

Wow. I’m sorry you have to put up with that. 🙁 Even if they are joking, that kind of joke can be very tiresome after a while.

I think they are just bitter or just trying to be funny.

@lindz629: OMG, I totally know what you’re talking about. Every once in awhile someone will say that to me or my FI, the whole “Don’t do it!!” schpeel. Or I’ll hear coworkers joking about how marriage is terrible and never works. It totally annoys me. I even heard an acquaintance say “Being married is for Uglies” I’m like WTF? I think the people that say that kind of stuff have their own deep rooted insecurities.

Geez, have any of these people heard of beating a dead horse? If anybody pulled that with me I’d probably respond with something like, “Heh heh…that was funny the first hundred times but as I’m getting married in two weeks, maybe it’s time to put that tired old joke to bed.”

UGH! I have ALWAYS hated when people say this!! It is usually from people who have had failed marriages. I want to tell them, “Sorry that your marriage didn’t work out, but I have a great relationship with my FI and we know we will have a wonderful marriage, so keep your comments to yourself.”

So annoying….

Yeah, I hate when people do that.  You’re right they’re probably joking, but is it necessary? 

Take comfort in the fact that it’s just people trying to sound “funny”.  I bet that the majority of those women, if pulled aside and given the choice to divorce without recourse, would never choose it.  It’s just one of those stupid cliche things to say nowadays.

omg. if someone told me “being married is for uglies” i think i’d have to blurt out “well then why aren’t you married?” (if they’re single)

@MissMaryMc: LOL I know, the kicker to that story is that the girl who said that is DIVORCED.

If this is to sound funny, they need a new joke. I’m tired of hearing it, especially when my FI and I are out as a couple and guys nag him about losing his manhood. Really? It just makes me upset.

I was at my brother’s party the other day, he’s in his 30s and about half of his friends are married happily. The other half are pretty cynical. This girl kept telling me how she was engaged and broke it off because love doesn’t last forever. I wanted to smack her.

heh… I was told by my CPA to NOT get married because I wouldn’t get as much back on my tax return!!!!  ummmm… sorry, but I’m gonna marry him and if you don’t like it, tough! (best part: she’s married!!!!)

I’d say there’s some resentment going on.  especially if they’ve been divorced or going through a divorce.  not everyone who remarries is happy in their new marriage (hence why some people divorce 2, 3….4 times, lol).

you’ve got WAY more patients than I do (and way nicer, too!) I’d have told ’em to shut it loooong ago! LOL!
