Often we run into married people or even people who are about to tie the knot and we ask these questions about their plans. And even though we may have no intentions of hurting them, the way we ask the questions or phrase them, has the tendency to annoy them. So just so you know here are some of the things married people are tired of answering:
1. “So when do you plan to have kids?”
This is the general question every adult in the family asks. Even though they didn’t mean to intrude, they happen to do it so naturally that you understand if you want to be nice to them or not.
2. How does it matter what you eat? You are married!
A common statement made by all your single friends every day and in every situation possible. It’s their way of saying that anyone who is married cannot or should not want to have a life. And that’s when you want to punch them in the face.
3. Where is your husband or wife?
Every social gathering you go to, you are expected to arrive in pairs. Since you are married you are supposed to be attached at the hip in everything that you do in life. Well, when people understand that marriage doesn’t mean being tied up.
4. Hey, so what’s married life like? Any tips or insights?
All your single friends constantly poke you with this question anytime you share a cute story about your marriage. They constantly want to either give their advice or try to see if there are any dangers towards getting hitched.
