I don’t understand this.. why do people make fun of marriage? From (mostly men) commenting on the “ball and chain” or just makign comments that would make one think it isn’t sexy to be a wife. I always hear about how once you put that ring on, the sex goes bye bye…
I am a very sexual person and plan on having it MORE when we are married (seeing as though we don’t live together yet). I just don’t get why people make it “cool” to rag on marriage.

Most people who say these things aren’t happy as people, or in their own relationships. I just let those kinds of comments roll off my back. And made snarky comments to my friends who said it 🙂

@StarIzInkd: I don’t know.. but I know what you are talking about.. I see tshirts that says game over? Some people just aren’t the marrying type, as long as your husbands not one of them.. Do people say things to you?

Yea I’ve seen that shirt too!!! I don’t get it! Nobody says it to me but people have made comments around me (people I don’t know and don’t know me, in a bar perhaps in joking conversation amongst guys). It just pisses me off. I’m happy to be marrying the person I am marrying and I like to go out all dressed n done up sexy so when I hear that it makes me feel like I won’t be as desirable once I’m a married woman. I will still bring the WOW factor though and I guess just have to make people eat their words.
BUT I will still never get it…

Jealousy. That’s all it is. They are jealous because they didn’t find the most amazing person ever. Also, for some people it makes them uncomfortable and humor is the best way they can cope or talk about it. Also, ignorance.

I hate the sterotype that all women are just dying to get married and men are just sucked into it. Like those cake toppers with the bride dragging the groom drive me crazy. My Fiance is just as excited to enter this marriage as I am!

Ah! This drives me nuts, but I just ignore the ‘jokes’ when I hear them, since we got engaged in April only ONE person(outside of close friends and family who are very happy for us) has said to me “oh! You’re engaged! Marriage is GREAT!” One of my semi-regulars at the coffee shop I work at…it was a refreshing change from the ‘jokes’ 🙂

I just had my bachelorette party this weekend, and when we went out and I was wearing my little veil and ‘bride-to-be’ sash I can’t even count how many people were like “don’t do it”! I even had one guy come up to me and and point to his wedding ring and say “it’s really not all it’s cracked up to be”. I was like really?!

yeah, i was told a lot NOT TO DO IT. stupid. those are people that had/have bad marriages. just because there marriage was a bad decision does not mean mine will be. my marriage is the best decision i have ever made 🙂

Those are so stupid. When women say them its usually because they are jealous because women who are not trying to get married are usually pretty neutral about it. When men make those jokes I think they just want to make fun of the guy who actually has a women and a commitment, something they are too scared to have.

my husband used to think these jokes were so funny till we got married and then he said i dont get it that stuff isnt true. well duh!

I just kind of let it roll of my back. I find that most of the comments come from people who are bitter about their own lives.
And for the record, I feel like we have better sex now that we’re married. Just sayin’….. lol

I think marriage jokes are hilarious. I’d totally rock a “ball and chain” tee shirt if someone wanted to buy it for me.
