Nothing kills the newlywed buzz like the barrage of randomness that nearly *all* newlyweds are subjected to. No seriously, if you’ve been through this just know that you’re not alone. It’s way more common than you would have ever imagined. Those of you who are yet to marry - brace yourselves; the random (and unwanted) comments are coming!
Umm, what? I certainly don’t think I need you to decide when my marriage *really* starts!
Once you’re married people assume your ‘real’ purpose in life is to produce children! It is beyond annoying and downright invasive!
Please note – no one ever asks the men this question!
And you don’t look stupid. But here we are…
This is just people trying to dig up dirt; don’t encourage this kind of talk – EVER. It is a trap!
It’s totally appropriate to remind people at this point that it’s marriage, not jail!
In case no one noticed, they’re lucky to have me too!
Umm, was he supposed to? Because we missed the memo! Why in the name of god would my husband change after marriage, you guys?
Yeah, people think you ought to look like a bahu straight out of one of those K serials! Of course, and not to forget the huge bindi and heavy make-up?!
Because working, and paying bills, and being independent didn’t make me feel like one at all, but marriage certainly will! Not an annoying (and demeaning) thing to say at all! *please note the sarcasm*
That is a terribly vague statement that makes me supremely uncomfortable, but okay, I will.
So, next time you meet a newlywed couple, make sure you do not throw any of these random annoying statements at them!
