Omg cute!! If I were you’de I’de start bringing my neighbor more food ๐Ÿ˜‰ SO gets comments CONSTANTLY about us getting married. He actually told me recently that he is getting sick of everyone bothering him about it. I say he needs to get more comments because I’m sick of getting asked that question.

MsBrooklyn- hint to your SO that if he would “take care of it” the questions would stop LOL.

happens to us all the time.   i can’t tell you how many random strangers have started chatting with us (like, at a bar or something), find out we’re not married, ask a few questions, and then spend the next two hours trying to convince my SO that I’m a catch and that he better grab me up before I get away or else he’ll regret it for the rest of his life.

Yeah I find that funny when that happens to us too.  Occasionally and by random people too!  I enjoy jabbing my boyfriend and making the expression like “See”?  Other people can appreciate what I do for you!  ๐Ÿ˜›

Sweet!! You’re very nice to help out your neighbor like that, he’s definitely lucky and your SO seems to be realising it!

Whenever people bring up marriage/engagement to my boyfriend, he always says “As soon as I have the money, then it will happen!”  At a family party recentely a cousin mistakenly thought she heard that we had gotten engaged and congratulated us.  That was embarassing for us.  When people ask me when we’re getting engaged, I just say, “Hey, that’s not my department.”  Haha ๐Ÿ™‚  Usually that gets them off my back about it, instead of me having to defend myself.  Lately his friends keep remarking that “we’re next,” and how he better marry me because they don’t know how we’re still together (they’re just making fun of him saying I’m out of his league or something. Not true!).  Now they like to tell the story of when the first of his friends met me, and texted everyone else, “She must have 12 toes or something… she’s too good looking for him!” So yeah.  People bring it up… I just want to be able to say, YES, we are getting married, and share that excitement with everyone we love!

When I was waiting our friends brought it up constantly… It made it awkward.  And my SO would always say “that won’t be happening for a while!” or “we’ll get there eventually”… Which always made me feel like we were SO far away from a proposal… but little did I know he had the ring the whole time and was waiting for the right moment to propose.  Which happened on NYE. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just hang in there ladies, try to not bring up marriage/engagements and they might just surprise the heck out of ya!

 

Mr. Bee’s plan worked for me!  And I’ve lost 20lbs!

It’s brought up almost every day to my SO–by his mother! haha. She lives on Mother-In-Law time.

10 years engaged and 3 kids before marriage.  We heard it all the time.  Where did people think either one of us was going, having 3 kids together!?

My SO and I got lectured over the holiday break.  Every where we went someone had to ask or say something.  A friend of his family was would not let it go.  He was also lecturing about kids to my SO’s brother and sister in law.  It was bad! My SO would not stay in the room and would keep changing the subject.  Everyone else thought that was funny.  Not me!  Time for another talk and then I’m not going to bring it up again.   I was really hoping that we would be engaged when we went over to see his family but that was wishful thinking.  Now I’m hoping for a V-day proposal.

@armychica06: I count myself lucky. I read a LOT of posts on here dealing with nasty MILs. It baffles me. I do not understand how people can be so needlessly mean. SOs mom and I have a great relationship. He says it’s cause she only had one kid and it was a boy and now she can finally do fun girly things. Works for me!
