She was probably just trying to be funny, but that is annoying.

Don’t let her immaturity get you down!

you guys look happy, and that is the most important thing. I am like 3 inches taller than my Fiance, who cares! Just means.. there is something a little EXTRA special about them that they can snag a model 😉

Why did you laugh?  Tell her how you feel.  If she thinks that you think it is funny – this could be an ongoing joke for her.

The one little comment about wearing heals, was probably not the issue I’m assuming. Lots of people will make little comments about things, not that it’s right but they do. I’m sure it was the continuing of it right? DH is a big guy and people make comments all the time. The first comment doesn’t bother me but if they carry on it’s just mean spirited. I tell them to back off. You should do the same.

@unixfairy: Aw I’m sorry! That wasn’t nice of her at all, and good for you for being polite but firm about it.

@mwitter80: I agree. But I’m a meanie when people are just being rude, I’d probably tell her that the only small people in this situation are the ones talking about others and let her chew on that one for a while. I’m glad the OP is more level-headed than I am 🙂

I have a GORGEOUS friend who is way taller than her husband. She is also very fashion forward and loves to rock the 6″ heels. She really does tower over her hubby at times, but she owns it and so does he! Next time she makes a comment like that stand up for yourself and for your FH. You two are adorable and who is SHE to laugh about height? I’m never one to bash non-blood relatives to their faces, but you better believe I’d have some choice words about my own brother to his wife should she ever say anything.

I would ignore it.   It doesn’t sound malicious, but it was hurtful.   It doesn’t warrant making a big deal about.
