As a newlywed there are so many things I am getting used to, for example having that Mrs. in front of my name, having a new last name and being called a Wife. These are all things that make me feel good inside, because I have a wonderful partner who makes me feel very happy to be his Mrs. What I am not too fond of is people feeling like they can ask me personal questions about my marriage and our next steps ESPECIALLY when it comes to us having children.
I completely understand how the natural progression of getting married is usually having children. Don't get me wrong me and my husband very much want children in the near future. It just gets very overwhelming and downright frustrating to have people ask us these questions on a consistent basis. Even when I was getting my nails done for our honeymoon, the nail tech was grilling me about when we were going to get the baby making popping off. This was expected and although I felt prepared for this I wasn't. I wasn't expecting the judgmental glances when I told people my age (28) them telling me not to wait too long because. . . . tick tock. From family and close friends sure, I get it y'all want us to have kids and fast, but from complete strangers absolutely not. This is not okay, in fact this is rude ass fuck.
