One would think that anyoone educated well enough to be a preschool teacher, would also understand the concept ofempahy for other people’s trials and tribulations.

“You just got engaged so how dare you be angry you have to spend money you didn’t plan on spending and maybe don’t even have to be able to get to and from work every day!”

Seems legit.

Being married is not the finish line on the race to a happy life.  It’s just one part of life, and there are still ups and downs along the way.  If you think once you get married and start a family your life will be 100% perfect, you are probably very young and definitely very naive.

omglife1985 :  LOL. So if you’re married you aren’t ~allowed~ to get upset about ANYTHING? What about deaths in the family? Or if your husband is cheating? Or you’re in financial troubles and are about to lose your home?

If and when you get married, you’re in for a rude awakening. Good luck.

LOL being engaged doesn’t change the fact that her car broke down?? Does engagement fix vehicles ?? Married people don’t live in fairytale land so good luck with that.

omglife1985 :  It’s because marriage doesn’t solve everything in someone’s life and shit happens on a day to day. People are entitled to have a bad day or be going through a rough time. No one is happy all the time, even if a good bigger event happens around the same time. 

Personally I can understand why your friend was irritated, her car broke down. She not sitting there smiling about her engagement because obviously she’s having to think… great, how much is this going to cost me and how am I going to do without my car!? Not, but oh well I’m engaged and it solves everything. 

Just because your getting married and have gone to go to doesn’t mean you can’t be grumpy or pissed. Those don’t help if you got other things going on like job loss, death, money issues…etc… and just because they are engaged don’t mean there aren’t other problems in the relationship.

I get that you were trying to make your friend feel better, but she’s allowed to feel her feelings and “at least you’re engaged/married” isn’t really helpful. That’s like saying starving children in Africa have it worse than her. You’re allowed to complain about things even though you’re not objectively the single person in the world who has it the worst- it isn’t a competition.

That said I’d be interested to see what kind of reactions you’d get if you stood outside a marriage counselor’s office and said that to couples walking in.
