World’s Quickest Relationship Summary

We attended a wedding this weekend.  When the couple got engaged I sent the groom the following email.  I think it nicely summarizes their relationship from here on out:

“Congratulations on your engagement!  Since you and [bride] have been dating for quite a while, I am sure you were getting questions on when you two would get engaged.  From the moment you get engaged, people ask when the wedding is.  From the moment you get married they will ask when you will have your first child.  Once you have a child, they will ask when the next child is.  So basically, the questions never stop – enjoy!”

    Those types of life expectations are my biggest fear in life.
    For years my sisters have always said “when will you have a boyfriend” and when I have one – “Are you two talking about getting married”

    it stops there, I am too young and selfish to share my life and I know it – long term life choice questions like this make me cringe.
    I figure someday I’ll settle down, but right now I’m completely content with being free and happy. =D haha

    I think this is a common behaviour across the globe

    And then I think once you have three kids, if you get pregnant again people startasking, “was it on purpose?! You’ve heard of birth control right?” I don’t know if I’ll ever get there, but God help the person who asks me that.

      I love the “was it planned” question!

    Haha, or you get sick of all the questions and elope. Then you get pregnant and people ask if you got married because you were pregnant.

    So many questions!!
