Yep!  But mine involve my parents and grandmother saying I am running out of time to have kids (I’m only 26).  Luckily I know when Mr. Tacos meets my folks for the first time, he’ll be asking permission for my hand. :/

My dad asked me the same thing, and I get asked that all the time from other ppl, my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together for almost 8 years, but we’re only 24, so it’s not really a big deal to me, it was a bit weird coming from my dad tho, I kinda brushed it off lol.  I didn’t really feel awkward about it, but I did tell my bf, then he told me that he’s been asked that a lot lately too!

Um, yes. My dad told me not to worry about having a hysterectomy someday…that it hasn’t interfered with their sex life (aka him and mom). Yell LALALALALALLALA

No boundaries sometimes. I mean, really.

LOL ejs, I think I would have pooped my pants if my dad said that to me! My parents always tease me if I don’t answer the phone. When I call them back, they tell me “no hanky-panky!” they’re teasing of course, but I still get grossed out at the thought of linking my parents with that at all!

And Krissy, entirely too funny about your parents who usually don’t do that kind of stuff flat out asking you. My mom isn’t so timid about stuff like that. I’ve heard since the day we got married, “When are you having a baby?” Married for over 2 years now…

@2PeasinaPod, yeah, i know. When i say something like, “Aw gee can we not talk about that?” he says somethign to me about being an adult and being mature about it.

Sex doesn’t weird me out. I can talk all day about “inappropriate” topics and be an adult about it. Talking about sex with my PARENTS weirds me out and crosses the line of “i don’t want to talk about this” especially when it’s sex for fun, not “hey mom and dad, Darling Husband and I are trying to get pregnant”. Even then, the specifics are not up for discussion.

My mom and aunt have seem to have given up on the “ZOMG when is it going to happen?!”  and moved on to talking like we already are… Ah well.  I think maybe my aunt is passing on tips to my mom on how to get things to happen?  I’m not certain.

We were at his parents’ the week before last, and thank heavens his sister’s ex was around, they got all of the “so you two should totally get married and blah de bah” instead of us.

Oh wow! Why didn’t your Boyfriend or Best Friend respond? Have you talked to him about Marriage?

Honestly, right or wrong, it makes people uncomfortable when a couple dates for a really long time and doesn’t say anything publicly about their future together. It’s normal and human to wonder if they plan on getting married and when people aren’t conforming it’s natural to ask why not. Although I never would say it to their face! We have a couple friend who has been dating for longer than us and didn’t get engaged until about a week ago. Up until  that point we always felt super uncomfortable around them b/c here we are planning a wedding and we dont’ feel comfortable talking to them about it. And we knew the girl was pissed when we got engaged, they fought that night.

haha, it seems like parents have no problems putting their own kids on the spot. my parents ask me all the time when we’re going to get married but they never ask the mister!

Ugh – I wish people would stop asking the ladies when they’re getting married. It’s such an awkward spot to be put into – you either make your man look like a jerk who hasn’t committed yet even though you’d like to get married (or conversely you look desparate) or you come off as a woman that’s not thinking about the future!

I’ve been put into this exact situation as well and I never know what the right way to respond is. =/

I have a neighbor who comes over frequently for wine nights with my mom, me, and my best friend. When it is just us girls, she refers to my boyfriend as my ‘husband,’ the ‘fiancee,’ the ‘hubby,’ or other such names. She knows we are not engaged (in fact she asks almost every time I see her if it has happened yet, just as I do for her). WELL one day, my boyfriend was visiting at my parents house, and she called him my husband in front of him. His eyes bugged out, and he exclaimed “her what??” Everyone was laughing as I melted into my chair. Later I had to explain that she just says those things sometimes. He was still pretty skittish about “the M word” (marriage) at that point in time.
