Some Advice For Young Married Friends
OTOH, single people should try and refrain from "How's married life!?" and "Are you/Is your wife pregnant yet?" [even as/especially as a joke] And yes, we've heard that one.
I had one friend who I almost threw out of my house for saying two incredibly dumb things in the course of 5 minutes - one included the words "knocked up" and I am drawing a blank on the other one [maybe that was the "when do you pop?" one]. I simply said, "That's strike two. One more and you're gone."
I was in a generous mood that day.
As for single guys, yeah they can be stupid as well. Asking "how's married life" is probably annoying but it's harmless. Asking about a wife's reproductive status, well that's really offensive.
It seemed witty at the time, but now sounds kinda stupid. But i 2 was fed up with the idiotic comments from married people like "Your one closer now to your bashert!!" puke, gag. or "You're so picky!!!". screw u, little punk who got lucky and married the first girl u went out with at 19 when u didn't even know what u where doing - stop preaching! (yeah, i was bitter! b'h it's over.)
