You look to young to be getting married…..

 

Im 25 and will be 26 when we tie the knot.

 

This was from a complete stranger when I was talking to another lady about my wedding in a gondola during skiing… Literally wasn’t talking to this person when he came out with that.

@CestTresJolie14:  I was engaged at 18, and have had a trillion you’re too young comments, are you pregnant comments etc.

 

But the other day was probably the worst. Our friends are engaged and they are getting married before us. I asked him if his invitations were coming out soon, and he says to me “why are you trying to copy us?” and i’m like “yes, clearly”. 

 

They have been incredibly competitive and making rude comments from the moment we got engaged. And when they got engaged (about a 18 months after us) the ridiculous competitiveness has continued!

 

I am seriously wanting to punch them both in the face, or boycott their wedding alltogether.

One of the customers at my old work told me I was far too young to be getting married, then asked my age. When I told her I would be 24 on the day of the wedding she told me I looked like I was 17.

i’ve gotten “don’t do it!” before.

i mostly get rude comments about my ring, like “it’s so small” or “he could have done better” or “is that a promise ring? it doesn’t look like an engagement ring” or my personal favorite- “i’d never say yes to a ring that small and tacky.”

There was this creepy old man that was obbsessed with my husband, then fiance, at our workplace, and I remember there was one night when I really didn’t want to deal with this customer because my fiance and I had had a tift earlier in the night. I don’t remember the exact conversation, but I told the man that I was not going to call my fiance for him (who was at home on his day off), because I didn’t want to speak to him. The creepy old man replied to me: “Well, what do you expect when you date a teenager?”

Oh boy how I wanted to just reach across the counter and smack that old man. Of all the nasty comments that I thought in my head, I just shrugged at him and walked away. To clarify, my husband was 19 at the time, but still. That old man did not know me on a personal level or my relationship with my fiance to be saying things like that.

As the wedding day has gotten closer, I’ve heard several people ask “are you getting cold feet yet?” and one lady commented to my fiance “it’s not too late to run”.  Her comment had nothing to do with US specifically, but I think more so because she had a horrible experience in her marriage.  Still!  Why are people so inclined to think that either one of us is going to have second thoughts?? Rude!

@CestTresJolie14:  No, it was deff a negative comment. I would understand if he had an upbeat body language but it certainly was not.

@CestTresJolie14:  Oh, this customer wanted to talk to my husband about anything and everything. On this particular night he wanted my husband to check his e-mail for him, which isn’t that big of a deal, had my husband not showed him multiple times and written down the instructions for him. But he wanted my husband to go to his hotel room to help him out.

The son of a family friend (15) said to me, “Don’t do it! It’s too much pressure!” It was dumb, but it was actually kind of funny that he thought that would change my mind. Idk where he was coming from with that. Any other rude comments have just been people tearing apart my plans in favor of whatever they think I should do.

Oh I got “marriage will ruin your life”, “it’s not too late to back out” “what’s the point of getting married if you’re not having kids?” miscellanious comments about the ring, etc etc. Yes, people are rude as f***.

Whenever I bring up any detail about the wedding my sister chimes in and says “Don’t worry about that, you won’t make it to the wedding…he’s going to leave you.” 

 

Every. single. time.  She is so bitter.
