Hi Ladies, I'm not married yet but I've gotten some crazy questions myself. FH and I were together for 8 years before he proposed and so the favourite question was "When are you getting married?" I think we used to be asked that more than usual because we were members of a christian youth group and most of our friends among that group married off at around 21. It used to piss of FH so much because he felt pressured by them about something he already was anxious about on his own. We still get that question from people we don't see that often. Now FH delights in telling them our wedding date. I just laugh.

I sometimes get the baby question too. They ask me when I am going to give my mother some grandkids. I love kids but I am not ready yet. I think it is unfair for people to put that kind of undue pressure on people.

This post cracked me up. I'm not even married yet, and I've gotten the baby question. We were at a family birthday party literally a month after we got engaged and one of my aunts, in front of my ENTIRE family, asked how many kids we wanted to have. Seriously? I was at a loss for words... I told my dad how odd I thought that was and he said the next time someone asked me that all I needed to say was "16". lol
I love him not just for who he is, but also for who I am when I'm with him.

The "how does it feel to be married?" question is the same as on your birthday when people ask "so how does it feel to be _____(insert age here)?" Um abuot the same as it did yesterday. NO DIFFERENT.

Now if DH and I never met prior to our wedding maybe it would feel different to be married or something? I don't know the logic behind that question.

That is another one that I'm getting right now. My birthday is tomorrow so I've been getting "So how does it feel to almost be 25?" and I know tomorrow I'll get "so how does it feel to be 25?!". Not looking forward to it. Anyone know any witty comebacks to that one? Haha...

together is a perfect place to be because it's there that you can be delightfully imperfect. and there's nothing closer to perfection than being loved just because you are.

Ah, that's exactly what I'm looking for. LOL.

I wonder how they'd respond if I just said "looking forward to that colonoscopy later".

To the age question of how it feels to be 25, I'd have to reply, 'Squared'. I am a math nerd, proud to admit it. That answer always leaves people looking at you like you're a little off balance, but that's because they don't get it.

I told a friend of mine who is a single mom and was afraid of what people were going to say when they found out she was pregnant to reply, 'I don't understand how it happened. Can you explain to me how people get pregnant? I never learned about that in school.' That usually shuts people up pretty quickly.

OMG the baby question is a constant. And the further i get in my marriage (currently married almost 10 whole months), the more frequent the question becomes.

Q: When are you going to have a baby? You're 28, dont wanna wait too long!

A: Umm lemme think. OH YEH, when my husband and I have a few more pennies saved up and we are in a HOUSE. I thought the responsible thing to do is to sorta/kinda PLAN for kids. Get off my back cretin!

Yeah, the only reason I'm looking forward to my birthday this year is because I get to be a prime number again. Last year I was a cube, next year a prime, but 28? There's nothing really interesting about 28.

LilMrs, I couldn't agree more with the how was the wedding question. If your lame ass couldn't show up, and/or RSVP, you don't deserve to know.

Oh, we saw someone who RSVP's and didn't show up the DAY after the wedding. They asked what we were doing in St Pete. DH said ' getting married'. Their response was 'congrats'. That's it. We were both dumbfounded.
