Yes, getting married is a BFD. But just because a woman has a ring on her finger doesn’t mean her entire life has changed — or that you have permission to ask insanely nosy questions. So don’t say these things to her.
1. “HOW’S MARRIED LIFE?”
The same. It is the exact same. But now there’s joint checking.
2. “WHEN ARE YOU HAVING KIDS?”
Insert major eye roll here, please. Not only should you not ask this, but you definitely shouldn’t ask it at, oh, the rehearsal dinner. Or the wedding. Or even six months after the wedding. How about you let me enjoy the fact that I think I found my lobster and not worry about introducing the world to the next generation of whateverhisnameis, mmk?
3. “WHY ARE YOU WAITING SO LONG TO HAVE KIDS?”
For all you know, we’re not interested in having children. Or maybe we’re looking into adoption, which can be a long, drawn-out process. Or maybe we are trying, and you’re rubbing my face in the fact that we’re having difficulties. Thanks.
4. “OH, HONEY, IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU?”
