The ever so asked question.. So when are you going to get married. People really never ever get tired of asking that question its so annoying. Not only do I have to wait for the proposal but I have to hear the same question at almost every family function lol… Terribleeeeeeeeeeee anyone else go through it? makes me angry lol

Just wait-once you’re married it turns into “so when are you having kids?” It never ends! lol

I can feel you on that. But for me, it was years and years of “so you got a boyfriend yet?” Everytime I went to visit family. And my poor Mammaw, she’s 90 and has a horrible memory. So she’d ask if I had a boyfriend and then ask again 10 minutes later. Gotta love her.

It’s a never ending thing:
1. Do you have a boyfriend? 2. Are you thinking about getting married? 3. When are you getting married? 4. When is the wedding? 5. When are you having babies? 6. Does junior have a boyfriend/girlfriend?
Just learn to tune it out now before you go crazy.

@skipper2010: I think “when are you having kids” is even more annoying.

I keep getting “So are you engaged yet or what?”….We’ve been together for 1.75 yr so its not even worthy of ‘yet’ but its still annoying.

This question doesn’t really bother me. I’m from the South & I’m just used to ppl getting in my business when it comes to relationships. The first question I got from my hair dresser on my first trip home from college was: “So have you found you a husband yet? You know K (her daughter) met her husband in college”. I just shrug these types of comments off, because I know that most of these ppl actually mean well.

My friend who is waiting deals with this question constantly. She’s given up on being polite and now just throws up her hands and says, “Ask him!”
…..Which, of course, is awkward for everyone.
And yes, we’re already getting the, “When are you having babies!?” even though we still have 2 months until the wedding.

Yeah, really. Next is the kids question. The second people even found out I was getting married was “are you having kids?” and at the little party they threw me for getting married, it was “when’s the baby shower?!”

I know what you mean! Mine seems even worse because we’ve only been together for 9 months and they started after a month! Admittedly we’ve known each other for 8 years but still, that’s putting a lot of pressure on a relationship.

OMG i HATE that question. Fiance and I have been together a little over 5-1/2 years, so I heard that for about 4 years. I find it annoying and think people should mind their own business. I’m glad I don’t get asked that anymore, but now it’s “when are you having kids.”

People use to ask me this all of the time but they don’t anymore…wierd I know (they’ve given up all hope for me! Jk lol). It’s weird because I was only like 20 when people would ask and now I’m 24! Different boyfriend at the time that wasn’t “the one”.

I’m new to the board, this is actually my first post as I just joined today. My SO and I will be celebrating our 4 yr on Wednesday, and I recently just went to a wedding and his mother was asked 25 times when we are getting married. I told her that I was so sick of the question, and it just makes me pressure the SO which pushes things back even more. I’m 29 and really hoping to be engaged soon, but everyone asking constantly is brutal and i’m sick of “you’re next”; especially when theres a million bridal showers and weddings to attend!! We went ring shopping nearly a yr ago ….still waiting…he says he wants it to be a surprise….
