Yep.  For some reason in the last months before the wedding, everyone thought it’d be a great idea to tell both my then-FI and myself that it “wasn’t too late to bail.”  Even members of our wedding party thought it was necessary to tell us they’d drive the getaway car for us…ON THE DAY OF THE WEDDING.  I’d like to think they were just joking, but part of me knows they weren’t.  No idea what is wrong with people, but I think some of them just have no filter. Just let it roll off your back and take it as a joke.

I had people in general consistently warn me to not get married. I don’t know, I think that people just have a very negative outlook on marriage nowadays. There was zero reason for people to discourage us from getting married since we have always had a really really good relationship – it is just people voicing their own opinions on the subject of marriage in general. It got on my nerves a lot and I always thought that it was rude for sure. I was relieved after we got married though, because now when I tell someone that I am married I don’t get the “WHAT? YOU’RE MARRIED? WHY?” that I was expecting, instead everyone seems to act more positively toward you about it once it is all said and done.

Yeah people seem to think that is funny or something. I would just stare at that lady with disapproval and hope she gets that you don’t find that humorous AT ALL.

I think you have to chalk it up to misery loves company and people just have big mouths. I can’t tell you how many times just on our honeymoon people asked us “well why’d you go and do that” or “now you’ve gone and messed things up for good” etc.. And on our wedding day 3 people including my Mother-In-Law told us that we should try not to get divorced… I know its common now days but really?? People just have no tact.

I was shocked until I considered the sources… But even with that being said it kinda stung a little bit… Just wish people would think a little more sometimes.

I would be willing to bet this is not this woman’s only instance of disrespecting her colleagues. I bet Human Resources has a file on her that’s huge. If she continues harassing you about this, I would slyly hint that HR would find her harassment very interesting.

At the last place I worked, the marketing director was in the process of going through a bad divorce and she pulled me in her office one time to say, “Ya’ know you should really think about whether or not you should get married.  Just be totally sure!”  Besides it being incredibly unprofessional, it was totally awkward and uncomfortable….  People suck. lol.  I just wanted to be like, “wtf lady do you really think Fiance and I haven’t discussed this in complete depth!?”
