FIs boss said “you’re not going to marry her. you’re going to marry a girl from your own country.”


My boss said “well getting married will be good for immigration reasons!” yeah, THAT’S why we’re committing to each other for forever. *eyeroll*


Someone else insisted on telling me a story about why intercultural relationships are a terrible idea… Thanks? lol


Some people are just awkward.

To be honest, I don’t really get why the story your dad told you was insensitive.

@Artificial-Sweetener:  Lol, maybe your dad felt awkward in a lull in conversation and that was the only thing that popped up in his head.  :-p

I got, “The most important thing on your wedding day is, don’t be fat; because, there will be pictures and people will remember you that way.”

….thanks mom

At a party / announced to the room:

“I’ll make you a bet (to FI), but if you win I’ll put it in a special account so she (me) can’t get it if you’re divorced.”


Same crowd, different erson:

(FI says how happy we are to be engaged) “I would never get married because the chick would totally try to take my Xbox during the divorce.” 


This is what you get when FI’s friends are nerdy and single.

My dad told me that if/when I am tired of FH, I am welcome to move back home! 

I was in the car when my Future Mother-In-Law and her SIL started talking about how all the kids in the family keep ending up with loser, free loading, directionless mates. Um, hello, I’m in the backseat, still within earshot!
