I think when people see a couple they think are great together… they want the best for them.  Take it as a compliment.  I mean they could be ripping the two of you apart all the time for sport.  You guys as a couple make people smile.  


Perhaps you should ask for donations to the “hurry up and get married fund” lol

I’ve got my fair share of the “When?” question. It came from same person (parents’ good friend), so I felt irritated for a while. But after some time, I learned to smile, said “not in near future”, and shrug it off.

Well, look at the bright side, I learn not to be that person, LOL

Hmmm… to be completely honest, I think a lot of people ask the ‘when’ question to put the ‘idea’ in couples heads who may need a little icebreaking to talk about the subject, etc.  They are not meaning to make you feel pressured… actually, I kind of liked it when people would ask the ‘when’ question – made my now fiance kinda wonder too 😉

I actually like it when people say “you’re next.”  It makes me feel like they can see that this is where our relationship is headed too.  =)

I always respond- “I know, right? Here’s his number- why don’t you ask him?” Lol- some people, like my family, our friends, etc then do go bug him.

Niether of us feel pressured, and we know the reasons why it hasn’t happened yet ($$$$) so it’s mostly just fun for us. We’ve been together 6 years now, so we’ve seen people get together, marry, and divorce in the time we’ve spent enjoying each other’s company.

I just joke with them about how long it’s been. Makes me laugh 🙂

@Liss13:  I agree with a previous response, take it as a compliment!  I know it’s totally annoying, but it means they think you are a super cute couple and they want to see you together forever.

If you want to be semi-rude (because, hey, you are responding to a rude question!) you can say “Let me know when you’re ready to pay for it and we’re in!”  I’ve said that a couple times about getting pregnant (married 5 years now), though I haven’t said it in a while.
