So my Fiance and I are eating dinner at my parents house the other night. Just casually eating some ribs when my dad says “Hey! Bob was telling me today at golf that a friend of his step son and his Fiance just broke up! They were supposed to get married next month!”
Ummmmm ok?! So I said to him … “Oh they must not have been together that long” and he responds with “Oh ya they were together for 5 years!”
Really Dad? What a nice lil’ story to tell his newly engaged daughter and future Son in Law! LOL!!
Anyone else have any stories of friends, family, acquaintances or strangers saying strange things regarding weddings to them? LOL

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.

@MrsHRC: Who said anything about being insensitive? This was light hearted. I just thought it was funny that my dad is telling us about a long time engaged couple who just broke up… to his newly engaged daughter.

@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.”

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!
