After recently becoming engaged I was honestly astounded at the amount of times I was asked if I was pregnant.
I wasn’t exactly offended more surprised and little bit disappointed. Now don’t get me wrong, we are not an old-fashioned couple and in this day and age if you have a baby out of wedlock well it’s not the end of the world.
What was disappointing however was people assumed there must have been a need for us to get married, instead we were just an ordinary couple in love wanting to marry each other.
It lead me to ask the question, in this day and age how has marriage changed? Is it something we do because: oops there’s a baby on the way, you’ve been together so long and it’s expected, or God forbid you’re in love and just WANT to get married?!
