Her Finger Is Not Your Business

You ever witness this? Among a group of people at a social gathering, introductions are being mad small talk and chit chat happens and as people are finding out about each other the following happens.

Jessica : "Ooooh so how long have you been together?"

Couple: "About (fill in the blank) years."

Jessica : "That's great are you Married?"

Couple : "No (laughing)"

Jessica : "Engaged?"

Couple : "Umm *looks at ringless fingers* not officially engaged."

Jessica : "Damn. When you gonna put a ring on it!?!?"

***Awkward Silence all around***

Now the words may vary from convo to convo BUT you get the idea. Is it just me but I think that a public questioning a couples time line or plan is NEVER proper. Beyond the "how long have you been together" line I feel that anything else is on the couple to say. I know society feels the marriage is expected but even so it's not anyone's business but them. And when you have couples that have been together for extended periods of time I think common sense should lead you to know NOT to question it.

I don't like that shit, either. I'm more of a "Live and Let Live" type of guy. Shit, I know couples who have been together for YEARS and NEVER got married. They don't want to and I don't care not one bit about it. Hell, they're happy and that's all that matters.

LOL...I always see this happen with older many of us would honestly tell an older relative/colleague to STFU and mind their own business...I'd rather nervous laugh and come up with a sarcastic yet witty answer then get mad about it.

As much as things change and advance there are still a lot of social rules that hold for a lot of people.
