“A man can have more than one wife, but he will only have one mother.”  Joke or warning??

Okay so I’m not engaged yet, but plan on being soon.

This is something my Mum said to me a few years back and I wanted to share after reading some of your hilarious posts.

When I was in my mid thirties I showed a picture of a dress I was lusting after and said “if I get married, I would like to wear a dress like this” and she told me that if you ever get married you’ll be too old and wrinkly to wear a dress like that.

well i could go on for days, but here’s a few off the top of my head:

“i can’t believe you’re taking him away from the city, he loves the city”- when Fiance moved in with me, literally 9 minutes from downtown.

“it is absurd to gain more than 30lbs when pregnant, for any woman”- fmil on if we ever have a baby

“cheese and crackers? that’s all your having at the cocktail hour? you better put that on the invitations so people know they might starve”- fmil on our cocktail hour (keep in mind we are serving dinner DIRECTLY after our 45min cocktail hour)

“wow, a mermaid dress, you probably won’t get that one since you won’t be able to eat until july, you know with your weight (i weigh 140, and i’m 5’8)”- when i was dress shopping

“cupcakes? cupcakes are for children’s birthday parties, not weddings”- when i wanted cupcakes instead of a cake

“what do you mean you’re not having a full mass? your marriage is starting off on the wrong foot”- because we don’t want a full catholic mass, as my family isn’t catholic. it’s not enough that we are getting married in the catholic church, primarily to please fmil.

“what are your sisters names again?”_ fi and i have been dating for 3 years, and she’s met them on several occassions.
