“Oh, trivial things like that don’t bother me anymore. We have a marriage now.”  ………    She told me “oh, I don’t think so. We have a marriage. It’s different than shacking up

@KoalaWalla:  LOL the smug never ends- even when you do have kids there is always the smug friend who lucked out with a perfect baby!

Honestly I haven’t noticed any difference in our relationship or how things do/don’t annoy us since getting married and we lived together for 5 plus years before doing so.

You friend has what I call the delusional newly married brain. This normally results in them fighting more after the first 6 months because instead of venting about leaving the toliet seat up they have bottled it up for six months and then implode over something even more trivial (like moving the car keys two inches ont he kitchen bench).

@KoalaWalla I am related to someone who has actually dated someone, married them, and gotten pregnant (and will have the baby before my wedding date) and I get this constantly. It doesn’t help that it is my older sister and she’s an attention freak. I’m brushing it off with “Oh, man. She still has a lot to learn herself.” They are obviously still in their “honeymoon” stage and it will end eventually, it always does. And it’s frustrating knowing you can’t be kind and state your opinion appropriately. So maybe, just get a few laughs in behind a closed door knowing that they really are oblivious to what it is. Marriage is nothing to the years you have spent together.

Yep, get it all the time…even funnier when I’ve been with my SO longer than they’ve been with their husbands or wives. So yes, a lot of unmarried ladies get it. Just gotta ignore them as best you can!

Smug parents…those are the ones who constantly make comments of me using healthy diapers “the chemicals won’t hurt them, they didn’t hurt us!” or making baby food “They’ll eat processed one day!” Argh. I don’t push stuff in their faces, so they need to get out mine!
