toyoking :  Wow, I am sorry about that! My ring is super tiny and I am afraid of this. Even though it IS rude. “Not to be rude.” UGH what is wrong with people??? If you don’t have anything nice to say, how about…STFU?

I had someone ask me if I was pregnant…we had been together for over 5 years when we got engaged! I laughed at it, what he wouldn’t propose unless I was knocked up?!? 

Some people say the oddest and most inappropriate things lol!

I had a friend (we are no longer close but we were at the time this happened) that said two weird things. The first was “I cried when you told me – not because I was happy for you but because I was sad for me”. The other thing she said was when she first saw my (beautiful cluster) ring that is perfect for me. She said “I could never even consider marrying a man who didn’t care enough to get me a solitaire”. I was so shocked with that one that I couldn’t even come up with anything to say. Later I thought of, that might be why you’re still single but at that point it was too late. We completely drifted apart after that and now we speak only once in a blue moon.

DH cousin texted us “Good luck”…

Not sure what her problem was , but I’m just curt with her when I see her at family gatherings these days.

My FI’s sister saw us on the day we got engaged and didn’t really mention it at all. She just talked about other things, it was very strange. My family had a whole party and a cake ready to congratulate us but she just pretended like it was a normal day? Very weird! She’s just not a warm and fuzzy type of person.

My Mother-In-Law said “oh no, not again”. I was so pissed. It’s not our fault that my Brother-In-Law decided to have 2 weddings and didn’t really plan any of them.

When I called my mom to tell her, she asked what the ring looked like.  When I told her, she said “didn’t you want something bigger?”.  WTF, MOM. She was also mad that my bf at the time asked my dad for my hand in marriage, but did not ask her. I tried to explain that was traditional, but that fell deaf on her feminist ears. She proceeded to make my engagement pretty miserable because no one is good enough for her little girl.  Still hurts 8 years later.
