Hello bees, I’m getting ready to go to bed but tonight i went out to celebrate a friends birthday (SO was not with me as he is traveling on business) and I had at least 3 people ask me when SO and I will be getting married. One even acted suspicious like “are you sure?” Yes we are 100% sure we are going to get married.
I had to explain that SO has a lot of student debt from his MBA and it’ll come soon when he’s had some money saved up. Ugh so annoying. How do you waiting bees handle this?

All I say is he’s working on it with a polite smile lol. Usually that shuts down further inquiries lol 🙂

Ugh, I hate it when people think it’s okay to ask if I’m sure about being ready to get engaged and married. It’s so rude and insulting. I usually just say “Yes I’m sure.” and they don’t say anything else. I don’t say it rudely, but I don’t say it in the most polite way either. I usually address it firmly so that way who ever is asking knows it isn’t actually polite to say those things.

Was asked this last week on a night out for the 100th time told him we got married on a trip to Vegas last year.
He actually accepted it and left.
I’ll be using it the next time my mother asks 😂😂

I get asked this all the time because we’ve been dating for two years and are in our mid-thirties.
It’s really tough to answer. I usually say we are just enjoying dating and learning about one another.

The same way you handle the million of times people will say “are you so excited?” Or “How’s the planning going” when you are engaged, and “so how’s married life?” After marriage and then “you’re next!” or “when are you having babies” after that. It never ends lol. Just nod nicely and put on your broken record answer they will forget it in two seconds they are just trying to make conversation and don’t know what to say.
