The rudest was a friend that I had fallen out with, texted me the night it happened to tell me what a bad friend I am as I didnt come over to her house to tell her in person ASAP and that Im the reason our friendship is failing……. SIGH. Luckily I have been able to since then place that aside and have good memories of the night I got engaged regardless.

The next, was all the people who made comments like “So, you finally strong armed him hey?” “Finally found the threat that worked?” 

Ummmmm WTF!!!

Two of our close friends who are married came over after we came back from vacation, where we had been engaged, and didn’t say a whole lot about it at all.. We were talking about our vacation, etc and I said something like “I was so surprised by the ring, i love how different it is” (It’s shaped like a lotus flower), and (let’s call him Joe) says “Do you know what it’s made of?!” because the center stone is an amora moissanite and not a diamond. Not that it matters, but it’s not a cheap ring. It was $5000 and I LOVE that the amora is different, and he could have gotten me a 25 cent machine ring and I would have loved it none the less. I responded with “Yeah, it’s an amora moissanite with a platinum setting and a total of 1.5ct small diamonds on the band”. He looked at his wife and goes “Sorry (let’s call her Anne)” and she’s like “It’s okay Joe, you know this is exactly what I wanted” …

 

like, way to make it awkward for one, and for two try to make me feel bad for not having a diamond, and three you guys are already married and had your day.. you can’t just be happy for us? I was pissed

“I can’t understand why anyone would even consider getting married.” – my male cousin, currently in the middle of messy divorce number 2

“That’s not an engagement ring. It should be a diamond if it’s meant to be your engagement ring. ” – friend upon seeng my emerald ring for the first time

“Couldn’t your husband afford to get you a diamond?” – random old woman (a patient) at work. 

People are so rude.

shazzshazshz:  haha, I don’t know about that — my parents’ relationship is far from perfect, but it’s hard to argue with something that’s worked for 40 years.  My mom just has a lot of issues, and crazy tends to run in that side of the family.  She just really seemed totally unaware of how hurtful and crazy her reaction was.

kikilo:  My grandmother first asked to see the ring (with a scowl on her face) and her exact words were:  “Oh goodness, what a small ring!”

I sent a picture to a close relative when I got engaged… he said something like “well <his wife’s name> ring has THREE diamonds”. Hmm OK? Didn’t know it was a competition!

“But I have to be there for my sister!”- said my sister. We got engaged on a weekend trip and I couldn’t wait to rush home the next day and hug my mom and see my family. I told my family what time I would be over and convinced my Fiance to drive straight to my house on the way home, only to learn that my family decided to leave to drive my sister to a sorority pageant that some sorority chick that she had never even met was participating in. This event was only 20 minutes away from my house and my sister could have driven herself, but I went home to an empty house. When I asked why they had to go when they knew I was coming home and dying to see them, my sister whined that she had to be there to “support her sister.” Glad to know that our sisterhood will always come second to the girls that she parties with, and that I will always come second to my family after my sister.

My Dad had told us during our wedding planning process that there was no rush and we should just live in sin a few more years. Haha, I didn’t really take it as rude, but just Dad being Dad. He’s actually really supportive and excited for us now.

I was engaged many years ago and my ex-fiance and I had purchased a house about a year before getting engaged. We were around 26, came from non-religious families and living together before marriage is quite common where I live. I was a little disappointed he didn’t tell my parents that he planned to propose, so when I called to tell them, it was unexpected and they were a little disappointed as well. Anyways, when I told his mom that my parents were a disappointed he didn’t talk to them before, she said ‘Really? You live together and sleep together, what’s left for him to ask for?’

Some people telling me that I didn’t want or need a proper wedding. Hmmmm, well, I think that’s our decision to make and only WE know what we want.

My sister in law that is 15 years older then me said oh we all have relationships like that pretty much saying we are young and its not going to last. Im turning 22 and will be 23 when we get married and he is turning 24 and will be 25 when we are married so not even that young…I think she is just jealous that she found my brother when she was a bit older and has 4 kids from 3 different fathers already.

The rudest comment I heard was “Oh your fiancé is a divorce lawyer? That will come in handy down the road.”

futuremrsc2be:  Luckily people don’t bug us THAT much. It’s only during family get togethers, like hoildays or birthdays. Coworkers for me just comment that WOW that’s a long ass time. Me and my SO have the longest relationship besides my boss who’s been married for about 12 years.
