    People mention it to us quite often. Sometimes we just smile and nod, and sometimes we make the comment that we’d like to wait a year.

    @MuchGreater:  None of her business, I agree.  But she was the waitress at the place we were currently eating at, and you don’t PO the people who serve your food, lol! I ordered a couple of alcoholic drinks instead.

    @hisgoosiegirl:  Oh my goodness I will set them straght for you. I would definately have Darling Husband seriously tell them to drop it and you will let them know when you have news to share. I am pretty private so I have really set boundries about certain parts of our life (kids, parenting,money) that is really off limits unless we ask for an opinion and it took a really long time for DH’s family to get that-his grandparents still over step boundries, but not on such important things.

    We’ve gotten a few questions, but mostly from people who are just oblivious and dumb and don’t care either way, and we know it.  I definitely haven’t felt any sort of pressure, especially not from any real friends/family.

    That being said, we’ve only been married three weeks.  I’m sure we’ll hear the questions soon enough.

    My husband’s family has been asking like crazy. We’ve only been married for six months! We’re easily five years away from even considering kids, so I have a feeling it’s not going to stop anytime soon.

    Luckily, we haven’t received any pressure from our families. I have only been asked by 1 person, a friend, and I wasn’t annoyed by it either. I guess if Darling Husband and I were getting tons of pressure from our families, then I probably would be annoyed. So far, things have been low key
