Oh god, I hated that.  I just always laughed it off and said ‘we’ll see’.  Not much more anyone can say after that espeically if its almost in a “yea yea yea drop it tone”

I have a book called “As a Lady Would Say,” and it has the lady-like answer for every situation you could think of in there.  For this particular question, As A Lady Would Say, says:

Not yet, but when there’s new, you’ll be the first to know.

I would smile and say… “I’m working on it” with sort of a wink.  Keep it light-hearted and fun.

I ended up glaring at people…  At one point it was “How should I know???”  People assumed we were married, to the point that I won’t have to change my name on my gym membership.

i always say “next year” or “we’ll let you know as soon as we figure it out.” and leave it at that.

I had a very un-ladylike answer for that question. We were out to dinner with a group of people one night, and a girl asked me that. I answered, “Probably not till we get knocked up.”  Everyone laughed and it dissolved any awkwardness. ๐Ÿ™‚

Love both the ladylike and the unladylike answers!  Nothing I can suggest will top them so I’m going to have to steal them.  Relatives will get ladylike, friends/siblings the unladylike.

Oh I hate this question! I get asked ALL the time by his friends in particular! I’ve stopped being nice about the answer though. I just simply say “Its not up to me” or “Ask him” because they have been asking me this question for years now!

When I was waiting I’d always say “Ask him!”

I honestly can’t really think about how I’ve answered this question. Maybe it’s subconscious. And I’ve been asked it a lot lately. I HATE IT!

I think my answers are “I don’t know”…”why are you trying to marry me off”…”we’ll see”….”I need to finish school first” (my favorite) and being that I graduate with my 2nd degree this Summer I can no longer use that. And that’s why I plan to not wait past that ๐Ÿ™‚

When I was waiting it was always “once we finish school”. Of course, that’s not how it worked out, but you know…lol
