So my cousin who I grew up who is 2 months older than me is seriously angry that I’m getting married before her!!! She doesnt come out and say this but I know she feels this way. She was engaged 2 years before me and there is no wedding plans for them in the near future. I got engaged this past December and I’m getting married next April. I think she feels like she needs to be first because she was engaged first but i’m sorry I’m not waiting until you get married (whenever that is) so I can “take my turn”. Me and her were super close growing up but through the years we have drifted apart because we are super different and frankly I’m not a huge fan of her fiance. She isnt going to be in my bridal party either because we are just not close anymore. A few months ago she actually had the nerve to ask me if I was pregnant! When I asked her why she said that she said “oh because you are glowing” my response.. “yeah because I’m happy for my upcoming wedding!!” I was sooo angry and it still angers me to this day that she said this she has no common sense if she thinks I’m pregnanr and getting married next April like I’m going to walk down the isle on a destination wedding with a newborn!! Ughhh!! I’m so angry! My fiance says to let it go but I’m having a hard time doing that.

uh, she doesn’t even have a date. I fail to see the intelligence of her argument. Is your life supposed to be on hold until they decide?

You know, my Girlfriend did the same thing to her little sister (“you CANT get engaged before I do”) and it was silly. Don’t let it get to you.

Some people are just ridiculous and self-centered. Don’t let her get to you.

Wait? Am I to understand this correctly? She is a marriagable young lady with a dowry of approximately 10000 £ and you were introduced into society before she had the chance to secure a good match with a man of excellent manners and breeding????
Or is this 2012 and she needs to get over herself?

That’s ridiculous. It’s her own fault she hasn’t sat down with her Fiance and set a date. She doesn’t have any right to be married before you anyway. Woop-dee-doo, she got engaged first.

I think your fi is right, you need to let it go. Or, at least pretend like it doesn’t bother you. This is the exact response she wants from you, don’t feed into her nonsense

She’s probably worried that her wedding will never happen, considering it’s been 2 years and she doesn’t have a date.

I agree that I should let it go but it just irks me so much! It’s like she was trying to imply that I was pregnant thats why I’m getting married before her!!!! She really does think that I’m going to wait and let her get married first then me..sorry lady thats no happening!!!

Stop letting her push your buttons. Your reaction is what she wants. She is trying to suck the joy out of you and you musn’t let her suceed.

If she is jealous, she doesn’t need to be, as all PPs have pointed out. But what other signs of ‘jealousy’ have you seen besides her asking if you are pregnant? I just don’t like when women say other women are jealous of them because of weddings; that isn’t always the case.
