It’s annoying, I use to get it too, but it won’t stop there, after your engaged, everyone will be asking when is the big day. After getting married, you’ll get, so when you guys have a baby.

I remember telling my now Fiance that upon us getting engaged if anyone says, “finally” or “it’s about time” they’re going to be cut from the invite list. 

He’s from Texas and we took a road trip there for the holidays a few years ago and went to dinner with his good friend he grew up with and upon telling the friend’s wife how long we were together she looked at me and says, “…yeah, it’s about time!”. She’s also unaware that there was ever a women’s movement. Ugh. 

I know what you’re feeling!

Oh that drives me INSANE. They always ask when Im having kids too. Um Im a cashier at a friggin grocery store and a college student, I dont have the money for a wedding even IF I did have the ring on my finger. When they ask me questions like that,I always try to say something snarky like “Are you going to give me a few thousand for the wedding or new nursery were building before we concieve? Seeing how Im paying off my loans, I sure need a couple dollars for those things youre drilling me for every week”

Im ony 22, pretty sure my clock isnt ticking yet 😉

i usually respond with a “you need to ask him. i have absolutely no control over that.” i have never had anyone not get the message.
