Did You Get Married Because You Were Pregnant?

Did You Get Married Because You Were Pregnant?

That’s what my cousin asked me later after I had my son. Of course I was offended by this because why would someone assume something like that?

I mean we didn’t treat each other well but we didn’t get married because I was pregnant, we got married because that’s what we wanted to do.

Besides we got married October 14, 1995 and our son’s due date was August 8, 1996 so we were married for 10 months, BUT he was born July 3, 1996 BUT he was 6 weeks premature so I didn’t get pregnant until we had been married for a month.

I started thinking about that because I was thinking about how long we had been married and I remembered her asking me that.

I know it’s weird that I thought about that question she asked me after I had been thinking about how long we had been married, but our minds work in mysterious ways.

That question still offends me to this day and I don’t think I’ll ever forgive her for asking me such a stupid question especially considering she was at the hospital when he was born so she had to know he was premature.

Has anyone ever asked you something that offended you and still offends now? Let me know in the comments.
