Of jealous non engaged and or attached women. So I went to high school with this girl, we’ll call her A for the sake of anonymity, and she made a lovely post about her thoughts on young love (we really aren’t that young… 23?).. it said “it will be interesting to see which couples get divorced. ahhh young love. With these stats, I’m going to be a busy lawyer one day. ♥” complete with the little heart at the end.
Um yeah okay, this coming from the girl who has constant posts about how she wants a boyfriend? I really think I’m going to have to delete her because I really want to say something worse than my “wow… thats nice” comment.
The reason it is so obnoxious to me is because it seems like she’s saying HAHA I can’t wait to see which one of you get divorced so I can laugh at you. Given there have been a TON of engagements from our graduating class (at least 15 engagements in the past 6 months) posted on facebook for everyone to see.
Am I being a b*tch or would this erk you too?

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.

Oh… OH now the BEST part. After my little comment of “wow.. thats nice” she said… “well some of them are bound to work out… just do yourself a favor and get a prenup”. So that was the automatic delete.
I feel bad for her because she was so sweet in High School :/ She had the same boyfriend for like 7 years (I’m talking they started dating in jr. high, believe it or not!) and he dumped her so I guess she has the right to be jaded.

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.

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.

Yeah… my dad wants me to get a prenup… bad. lol I don’t have anything but my parents do and I guess they want their money to be protected after they die?
I’m not too worried about it because when I had my daughter they pretty much completely disinherited me anyways in order to leave all the money to her. Yup… thats how my parents roll..

@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.
