Wedding nuisance

A couple of weeks ago, I had lunch with my ex-boss. He asked... "When are you getting married?"

Then later that week, I had dinner with my cousins. One of them asked... "So, when are you getting married?"

Then last week, my mom just asked me... "So when are you and Alvin getting married?"

The several days ago, I went to HKL. The nurse asked me... "So, when are you getting married?"

Today afternoon, I went to University Hospital. Another 2 more nurses asked me...
"So, when are you getting married ar?"

The later in the evening at the gym, another friend asked... "So, when are Alvin and you getting married?"

AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!! Why does everyone have an obsession with other people getting married?

I know that most people get married around my age. That doesn't mean I have to get married at the same age as everyone else. Since when is there an unwritten rule that people can only get married before they hit 30?

The right timing for marriage is indiviualistic and unique to each couple. Some get married after a couple of months of dating, and some get married after 10 years of dating. Marriages are not mass-produced products that have the exact same characteristics down to the T.

I got home and found that I've received a wedding invitation from an old friend. I am happy for her and am looking forward to see her at her wedding. However, I truly dread THE question that will definitely pop-up from the other guests at my table... "When is your turn ar?"

I will definitely let everyone know if I am in fact getting married, OK??!!!

Right now, there is NO wedding yet so get over it and get a life!

The worst part about this annoying question is that there will be no end to it. Once you are married, the frequency of these annoying questions won't stop... just rephrased... "So when are you having kids ar?" For someone like me who never wants kids... I guess I would have to put up with that question for life eh???
