she sounds like a negative nelly, it really just shows how unhappy she is/was and has nothing to do with your wonderful day that is only 2.5 months away! it sucks that you have to spend time with her, but maybe make a game out of it- how many terrible things can she say in a day/week? not to mean to her, but so that you can keep your focus on being happy and not let her get you down.

My former boss said something like this to me shortly after I got engaged. I didn’t let it bother me, he’s just jealous ’cause he can’t get a girlfriend. 🙂

My boss has made comments similar to this, some about my fiance such as “poor guy”. He has been divorced 3 times…

I wouldn’t pay any mind to those comments, some people are just jaded!

Wait until you get married, then you’ll get the snide comments about how you ‘must’ hate your husband or how dumb he is or something along those lines.  I don’t understand people like that, but its all too common!

@emilygrace07: Misery loves company! There are going to be a few naysayers like that who will try to dampen your spirits, but just ignore her. And keep reminding her that you’re getting married just to get at her ;o)

I honestly can’t believe how people always have something negative to say about marriage. All the guys J has ever worked with used to tell him “oh, wait til you’re married and have kids – it all goes downhill from there”.  I used to get so angry about it.  Just because they’re not happy, doesn’t mean we won’t be.

Argh.  Such ignorance.

Ugh, there is always that person that is totally against marriage because they got divorced. I am grateful that they want to help us and give us advice. But really? Why are they such downers? Oh well!

My parents just got divorced last year and my mom has been negative about marriage as well.  She constantly tries to find ways to compare my Fiance to my dad and then gets upset when I point out he’s not.  I have noticed this by other people I know that are divorced, it does seem to make some people bitter about marriage.  If I had a boss make a comment like that to me it would make it awkward for working with them.  I hope that isn’t a problem for you.
