The worst relationship advice I ever got was from my mum who told me that all men are only after one thing and will say anything to get it so never to trust them :-/ Think I was about 15 lol

My friend told me “under two would never do” regarding what women should accept in an engagement ring. She’s still single.

@pandaboo: I’m guessing @KatyElle meant under 2 carats?

Oh… that was answered, but the replies hadn’t shown up for me yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

Recently I met one of my FI’s old army buddies, and his advice to us was “Make sure you keep your promises about how much sex you want to have.  Otherwise SOMEONE’s going to be disappointed.”  He later got drunk and told us how he was contimplating cheating on his PREGNANT wife with an old fling. Thanks for the advice…now we’re never going to talk to you again…

Someone once told me that I should do all the household jobs and never to ask my SO to help out. Her reasoning was that once a male starts to do household chores, they lose themselves and their manhood.

So ridiculous.

Ahh yes, my lovely aunt, she pretty much did the snobby talk. Don’t marry for love, marry for money. She did and is VERY unhappy with her cheating husband :0/ and still keeps a close eye on the guy she let go. Money can’t buy love.

I’ve always been a strong and indepedent gal.  FI and I have been together 10 years. I got this gem (in Chinese, but I’ll give you the translation):

“Now that you will be married, you have to remember to bend to him” (submit/let him win… a chinese word with no direct translation but that’s what it means haha).

I almost LOLed.  She’s old fashioned so I just nodded hahah She went on about how men don’t stay with women who don’t cater. I know she means well, but I think he can handle me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Worst advice I got was to never talk to a man about how I feel, but save those feelings for my friends to work out with them. Uhhhhhhhhh yeah. I am happy to say I have never followed that advice!

PS… I fail at the ring too. I’m just under 1 ct and just under 2 thousand. Oh well! ๐Ÿ˜€

A friend of mine countered the traditional “why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?” argument against cohabitation with this gem:

“Why buy the pig when you just want the sausage?”
