  • Wedding: October 2015

We got engaged on our 7th anniversary so I got a lot of these comments/questions over the years. 

I was always just said it will happen eventually but right now we have other priorities.

I used to retort with “never” and watch the look on their faces LOL

futuredoctorbee:  Since you know the wedding is still a few years off you could just use that. When someone asks simply say:

“We know we would like to get married in the future but not for the next few years, at least. We don’t see the point in getting engaged now when we wouldn’t be planning our wedding yet.”

“we were thinking about having a baby first- you know, so we could have a flower girl and make things super special!”- try to say this with a straight face and then burst out laughing 🙂

” I dunno. Right now we’re just enjoying all the hot sex so we’re not in a rush.”

Since I deifnitely got this question a lot, and now (1 week after were engaged) I’m getting the “whens the date” question (why would I have a date 3 seconds after it happened??), I just give them this look ….

…Then they leave me alone. LOL

I totally feel you on this one.  The first Thanksgiving that I was dating my SO (3 years ago, so like 6 months after we got together), my mom told my grandma that I “brought something home this time” and my grandma snatched my left hand looking for a ring!  My mom meant my cat. LOL.

We are actually supposedly getting engaged with a ring before Christmas, so that makes it worse for me in a way!  I don’t want to say “oh, who knows” when I actually kind of know (and risk some people temporarily thinking he’s not even thinking about it and then bug him), but of course I don’t want to hint at it.

I think I’ve said it all…from “never” to “ask him” to “I have no idea” to “if he wanted to marry me, he would have asked by now” to “we’re not that serious (jokingly)” to “I hope soon!”

Im at a loss these days as to what to say.  I’m at the point of being annoyed when people bring it up. I need a positive, witty comeback!

futuredoctorbee:  DH and I dated for almost 9 years before getting engaged, so we got this question often.

My favorite response was to throw out a random day. So if they asked “When’s the wedding?” or “When are you two getting married?” I’d say something like “Tuesday” or “Next Sunday.” It kept the mood light and usually deflected further questions.
