I don’t think you are being a bitch, I just think “A” is lonely, jealous and pitiful.

A is a jerk, a lonely jealous jerk.  Sucks to be her.

Yes, it must bite to be her. But then again, you’ll later on in life encounter the angry and bitter woman who might be older and might be married, whose life didn’t turn out quite as she had planned it, who thinks they can also rain on your parade and say stuff about divorce statistics, or stuff like that all the time or try to downplay your wedding.  This seems to happen to me with a certain person in the workplace. 

Like for instance when I said to a few people that T and I had to change our ceremony and are having basically a scheduled elopement and have the reception in atlanta vs. the gulf coast due to the oil spill.  She was giddy with hearing the news!  Interjected that we didn’t need a big wedding anyhow as it was my second. I was giddy however, when I reminded her of how wonderful our familymoon would be and how the reception was to be very similar to what we originally planned anyway raining on HER parade.  And how she would be at work and I’d be lounging in a tropical area for a week.  Ha!

Witch.  Plus the B minus the W.

Ha, well she does seem to be giving good advice considering she is studying (I assume) to be a lawyer. Marriages where one person is under 25 have a significantly higher divorce rate than those who marry later and having a prenup agreement just makes sure you protect any assests going into the marriage. A prenup was a no-brainer for Fiance and me, but I was the one that pushed for it. He has lots of assests going into this marriage and I want his family to feel comfortable with me as a DIL. It would be terrible if they though I was marrying him for money!

I have known lots a lawyers in my day (my dad is a residential/commercial property lawyer) and they all tend to be like that. They start viewing the world as risk vs. gain and say things they honestly don’t know are offensive, just logical. I wouldn’t have been that harsh on her, but I grew up with lawyers. I’m used to the attitude they have. Smile

Sounds like a jaded lawyer to me!

In fact my parents are like this. Heck, the divorce rate isn’t 50% for nothing I guess, but to post that on facebook is simply tacky and rude. If all she sees are dollar signs from her future clients, well, she won’t be a very good lawyer without any sympathy.

@jaimie: Actually most of my Fiance trusts are set up that way (to leave the money to the youngest generation). So when we have kids the trusts automatically is in their name and my Fiance becomes the executor of the estate (which entitles him to the interest made off the inheritance). The only way the trust wouldn’t be passed down is if we have no children.

I would think that is what your parents are doing. It is pretty common now to setup a youngest generation assumption of inheritance money. I would still get a prenup for it though since it is protecting a future for your daughter.

I feel like people are basically the same regardless of their situation. I’m a basically happy person whether I’m with someone or not. Some people are basically bitter/unhappy people whether they’re with someone or not. Unhappy/toxic people have no place in my life. De-friend.
