I’m loving these lines, lol!

I used to always say:

  • This is the one thing I have no control over, ask him!
  • I think it’d be awesome if we could be bf/gf forever! Our parents don’t mind that we still live with them, and this way, he can still pay for everything and take me shopping! [<–very sarcastic, if you know me personally]
  • We’re not mature enough to get married yet. I don’t think we could handle it.
  • Actually, we eloped last month, and we decided not to buy rings, because we don’t need symbols to remind us that we love each other. [<– also very sarcastic]
  • We’re waiting until we have enough money to pay for the wedding ourselves. Isn’t the average cost like $500,000 nowadays?
  • *shocked face* Oh no, I forgot to send you an invite! [<– I only said this to family]

I used to get this question all the time, from co-workers, friends, family, etc.  Totally awkward!  I used to just tell them to ask my SO!

Everyone asks me, “So, when are y’all getting married?” I just smile and say ask him and point to my SO. We have had a timeline for some time but I’m not comfy telling people yet. I would rather be engaged before I start talking about wedding related things to people who I sometimes hardly know.

@qhaftershock:  I like “Why do you ask?”

I usually say to ask SO. I’ll also say “Because I don’t have $20k to spend feeding dinner to all the people who keep asking when I’m getting married.”

Really, since most of my cousins have had shotgun weddings in the past few years, my aunts are all asking when we’re having KIDS… not when we’re getting married. So I tell them I have this CRAZY idea about getting married first, so they get babies when they pay for my big family wedding 😛
