I think it was just an ill thought out comment based on nerves about lots of upcoming HUGE changes.

Frankly, when we finally got pregnant, one of my thoughts was “now I’m REALLY stuck with him forever”… but I wouldn’t have said it out loud.

Well, he’s right in that if anything goes wrong, they won’t have all of you around for support. I wouldn’t say anything, I don’t think he meant anything by it.

He’s right. If anything does goes wrong, it’s going to be bad news for everyone.

I think it’s naive to not have a backup plan and to not cover your “what ifs” when it comes to relationship. Lets face it. Divorce happens, and there’s a very real chance that love may not last forever. It would be incredibly naive on anyone’s part to just go, “We’re going to be happy and in love forever and we’ll never have to worry about a thing!”

So, while I probably wouldn’t have voiced the concern he has, I definitely would think it. Everyone needs a plan B. Everyone needs to figure out just what they’re going to do if it doesn’t work.

I wouldn’t say anything. I think he’s just thinking out loud.

Weird thing to say, but people always put their foot in their mouth.  If he says something like that again, I might speak up.  “You know, that’s an interesting thing to say and I’ve heard you mention it before.  Anything you’d like to talk about?”
