thats society for you! my mom and dad got married when my mom was 19 and my dad 26, people liked to talk, but she wasn't pregnant. Honestly they didn't care! Let them talk! After two years of marriage, my bro and I were born and my parents are still together 22 years after :) all best!
its a common trend for people like you...young to get married if they are pregnant...it harks back to unwed mothers and the shame it brings (crap) but thats the most common reasoning.
I was 34 when I married for the first time and people asked me if I was pregnant. You'll find people in general are very nosey. Don't let it bother you, it's not with it. Just wait until you do get pregnant, women will get even more personal.
My wife and I received the same response when we got married. People just think that the only reason to get married these days is due to a pregnancy. With divorce rates high and marriage being less and less of a necessity, the decision to get married is becoming less and less common and reasons to do so are waning. <br />
A word of advice from a young newlywed: Your pride is stronger and your ego is bigger than you realize. If you go through with this, work diligently to maintain your humility. Be quick to resolve conflict and slow to lay blame. You have a very difficult and even more rewarding journey in front of you.
Because they don't mind their own business. You don't owe a polite reply to an impolite question.
Not sure but when you see these people, say, for dinner, start drinking so they'll know you're not pregnant. Worked for my sister. Congrats on your engagement :)
Congrats and good luck. People ask if you're preg because they do not know how to mind their own business.
Because you're young and probably figure that you're getting married for that (possible) reason and no other.
Society today, I am going to get married before having sex so good luck to whoever says that to me and my future wife.
Really that's great, it's nice to know people still do it.
You're either getting fat or your fiance is not in your league.
Not saying he won't make you happy, just sounded like people were wondering why you would marry him (or vice versa).
If you knew the answer why did you ask?
