The Dreaded Question

Short one folks.

Last night I went to my grandmothers to have diner. Grandmothers little sisters and brother where in town so we all went to her place to eat. I was sitting on the couch when my mother commented that she had wonderful daughter-in-laws, my brothers wives, and my great-aunt put her hand on my knee and asked "So when are you getting married?"

I hate this question! I couldn't even look at her and didn't say a word. It is a sore point with me that at 40 I am still single but I would rather be single than with the wrong person. Not that being single is all that great. I look at it as the lesser of two evils.

That is all folks. Thank you for tuning in and I hope to be more entertaining soon!


  1. I got that for years. The good news is I'm managed to outlive all the people who used to say it to me.

  2. There is always a question like that. When you get eventually do get married the next question is, when are you making babies? Then the next one is when are you having no. 2 and so it goes on. Please don't feel bad - its just what society EXPECTS for us. Its bullshit. If you're happy, don't let it worry you...

  3. Jayne - I was wondering if the question ever ends (I can handle hearing it more than losing someone).

    Gillian - Given my history, I'll be too old to have children by the time I get married.
