Lol my FI was like that too. He considered us married, and I’m pretty sure I DID flash my empty ring finger around a few times haha. He finally got the hint.

I would die if my SO wrote that. I would be embarassed and it would freak me out at the same time. He’s pretty on top of how to properly address someone so I can’t imagine it happening. He freaked out when his brother called me his gf before we even had “the talk” haha.

@lalalyanne:  If my SO did that, I WOULD flash my empty finger! Or I would say something like, “I really appreciate that you think of us as a permanent couple, dear boyfriend, but it’s important to me that I really become your mother’s actual daughter-in-law soon! When do you think we should get married?” Or something like that. . . that question about “when” was the only way I got my SO to share his thoughts on that matter and make the subject a little more open to discussion. But I don’t know if it’s appropriate for your situation. 🙂

@lalalyanne:  Aha, I see. I actually saw that after I wrote that all out and was too lazy to change it at this late hour. . .

So in your case I would just smile and keep quiet about it. It’s coming, girl!! 🙂

I was “aunt” to his 3-year-old niece before we were engaged, it threw me off the first time I heard it. (And I’m sure she didn’t come up with it herself, someone must have referred to me as that)

@lalalyanne:  Haha. Yeah my SO and I have been living together 2.5 years now, I’m the one with bipolar feelings about marriage. Somedays I’m like “I want to get married, now.” other days I’m like, “Eh, I’m terrified to commit.” Mostly because I’m still behind in my education, I’m trying to get my ducks in a row.

i’m sorry, but the whole “why buy the cow bla bla” makes me THROW.UP. getting married is not a prize. being someone’s wife is not a reward that men give in exchange for us taking care of them or doing something.

 

you are both in a comitted relationship with each other. you’re not giving away free anything. and if you were, then he is too! you’re both not married to each other!

I have an ex my family basically gave the ‘fiance’ mantle to. I was constantly stopping them and telling them, ‘no we’re not married and I’m not planning on marrying him either.’ They were very confused (we lived together for 5 years and were very obviously commited) though my then SO took it well enough, I’d already talked to him about not wanting to get married, ever.

Turned out I just didn’t want to marry him…

FH called me his fiancee and wife before we were engaged. We were seriously talking engagements at the time, but it just made me that much more impatient.

@lalalyanne:  OMG! SO does the same thing!! He calls me his wife to everyone, and I’m like, “Where’s my ring, HUBBY?” But only in my mind. Lol!!
