Yes, I have heard the “dont/why get married” talk. I take that stuff as a joke. Or I mentally make fun of the person and how redic he/she sounds.

If I took everyone’s rant seriously, I would be in therapy 24/7.

I heard it all the time from my husband’s family and my co-workers. “Are you sure you want to get married?” “We can’t talk you out of it?” “Enjoy it now, because he’ll change and you’ll want to kill him”

While I think they saying it in jest, I still hated hearing it…especially after the 23438th time.

omg, nothing is more annoying than when people say “marriage is nothing but a tax break”. I hate when people whine/complain about marriage because it didn’t work out for them or someone they know. It’s just so ignorant. It’s not like I go around talking about how great marriage is and what losers unmarried people are…

I’m sorry you are only getting to see that side of it! 

I’ve been getting comments like “Marriage is the most wonderful thing. I’ve been married 45 years!” etc.

I haven’t had this happen to me. that’s just weird. To the creepy random Starbucks guy out there in karma-land-stick all your money you spend on those fancy lattes and treats into a fund to pay for the counselling you need, instead of sh!tting on people’s happiness.

 

Boo!

This happens to me, too!  Always older, bitter men posted up at a bar.  Thanks so much for your “Advice”….I feel sorry for you just like you feel sorry for me.

We’ve gotten lots of positive comments, which is great. However, when we went to my grandparents’ house to tell them that we’d gotten engaged, my uncle was there (he lives there), and his response was to look at my fiance and say, “Oh…good luck with that,” and then he walked away. Great, thanks, I’m sure my fiance will take advice from my mentally unstable, twice-divorced, alcoholic uncle.

I didn’t have anyone make any comments either way.  But as a married woman, I can say marriage is freakin’ awesome!

Yep, I got tons of these comments from random strangers, professors, coworkers, etc. It’s ridiculous. Do any of these people really think their rants are going to change our minds? As if, all of our planning and discussions with the actual person we are planning to marry will just be undermined by their enlightened opinion. Also, as another happily married person, I can vouch for the fact that they are wrong.

I’m a cashier so this happens to me almost everyday. Not trying to scare me away from marriage though. Just thier sob stories,they should hear mine lol. My mom bashes weddings every time I see her though and calls me stupid for wanting to get married. Since getting engaged I’ve tried to stay away from her.

I got the “your too young to settle down, have fun, live a little!”… I’m not that young, I’m 26, I was a few months shy of 25 when we got engaged; and my husband is 6 years older than me… I don’t think we’re “too young” and we can have fun and “live a little” together, thanks. lol
