- Wedding: February 2014
We are both 24… we have been engaged for 6 months but our wedding is 1.5 years away. Last week we had a big Chinese family dinner with some of my fiance’s cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. It’s the first time we have seen them since being engaged. After all the congratulations, his aunt came over and pointed out that all of hs cousins have one boy and one girl child. So…apparently we should aim for at least one of each also.
Today his cousin visiting from the US came over with his parents and her two young children, one boy and one girl of course! They had to change the baby girl and both FI and I were like ewwwww and didn’t want to watch so we ran upstairs haha. Then they were all telling us to get used to it because in 2 years we would have a baby.
Whaaaaaaat? Neither of us really want children but if this is a sign of our future and all the prodding we will get… Wow. We are in for a rough ride!
I’m not saying I’m complaining about my future in laws, they are amazing and we get along great, but I do fear what’s to come! FI is an only child so all the burden for providing grandchildren is on us, whether we want them or not!
