    When are you.....

    I'm sure a lot of you have been asked the same questions. When are you guys going to get married? When are you guys going to have kids? I hate answering these questions 800 times. There is a new one now that my son is a year old. When are you going to have another one? I thought these question were done once he was born.


    I have in the past had some clever responses for them when I was annoyed. I can't think of a good one for the newest question. I would love to hear others responses and for you older fanatics what will the next question be?

    Re: When are you.....

    My wife and I have married for just over a year and the "when are you having kids" questions is getting very old very quick.

    Some people just can't understand that we really don't want any right now. This got even worse now that we are looking at buying a house - everyone just thinks that must be for a baby.

    Re: When are you.....

    Whenever I was asked this with my gf's, I always replied: "I don't know, she hasn't asked me yet." Then give them a smug smile and look at her.

    I just had my first child 5 weeks ago, already had a vascetomy - which makes the answer easy!

    Your wife is going to beg you for a reversal in 2 years. Hopefully you put a sample in the freezer.

    Re: When are you.....

    Thankfully I have 3 nieces, so my parents don't bother my wife and I too much about it. My answer is usually, "as soon as we get our student loans paid off". That's not happening for at least another 4-5 years. I'm almost 25 and I'm not willing to give up my freetime any time soon.

    Re: When are you.....

    Oh how I looooooooooooathe these questions. And they'll never stop! I commented on fb about having a strange dream (involving cows and Kate Middleton) and got comments about how I must be pregnant. WTF.

    Once you're married:

    Are you going to have a baby?
    When are you going to have a second baby, they have to have a sibling, you know.
    You have three, are you done now?
    Four? You know where babies come from, right?
    (anything past four, really) "Are you crazy/stupid/dumb?"

    as a childless couple married longer than 9 months, my responses to those asking "when" have been to laugh, say we enjoy having time/money/sleep, or ignore it. If I were more of a *****, some good responses would be
    we're waiting to see how yours turn out
    as soon as we're done practicing
    we'll give you a call when we go back to unprotected sex
    why do you ask, is your uterus free?

    I know people usually mean well with these questions, but I find the "when are you having kids/another kid" incredibly rude. You don't know if they even want (or want more) children, and you have no idea what their personal situation is. They could be struggling with fertility issues, not be able to afford another child - it's just something I never ask because it can be very hurtful.

    Avoided most of these by getting married at 22, first child 2.5 years later, another 2.5 years later, and another 2.5 years later.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Yep. But when I date... I date. And this one gf, her family was very prone on getting married young and starting a family.

    Plus, I like to give a silly answer because it is a stupid question to ask when I'm 20.

    Just tell them you are both really into non-procreative sex right now and let them interpret that however they please.
