I agree!  People were asking us about babies at OUR WEDDING!  We just got married geez!  At least no one has bothered us lately!

I haven’t heard anything from people this past year but some of the people that bothered me before, I don’t talk to much.

As a student too I totally feel your pain. I was reading a similar post a couple of months ago and thought “That would never happen to me. People know me well enough not to ask such questions.” I was utterly and completely WRONG! My FFIL has baby fever (So are you two sure you want to get married? In that case, when are we going to have some grandkids???). We went to a family gathering for my cousin’s baby and got asked by several people (You two will be next! In about a year or so we will be celebrating your baby.) Ugh. It’s both annoying and bad manners! Whats even more irritating is that none of these people inquire about graduation or my life plans!

My favorite is “so how’s married life treatin’ ya?”

Really?

Um…it’s great, thanks??

 

I don’t get this question… if it were bad (it’s not), would they really want to hear it?

Why do people think it’s OK to ask personal questions like that? I would NEVER, ever, ever.

I have a friend who has been trying to conceive for years, and it’s so brutal for her when people ask that question. So she and her husband finally decided to adopt this year, and now she gets, constantly, “Oh, well now that you’ve adopted a baby of course you’ll get pregnant!” She finds that incredibly painful, too. People just don’t think. Jaws just gotta be flappin’ at all times.

Amazingly, we haven’t had anyone ask us yet.. but it’s probably because everyone who knows us well enough to ask us also knows we’re trying to pay down our student loans first. That, and that I’d sock them if they asked me.

I’m not even married yet and I’ve started fielding questions about having a baby, so I can’t even imagine what will happen after the wedding!

I feel like you can never win. When you’re single everyone asks “When are you going to get a boyfriend? Why are you still single?”. Then you find someone and it’s “When are you getting married?”. Then you get engaged and you get “When are you having kids??? Give us babies!!!!”. Good lord people! Can’t we all just relax and enjoy being where we are right now!!!!! Stop harrassing me!!!!

When am I having kids?  When you stop asking rude questions.
