I am reaching the final straw with one of my workmates. Thank goodness for this site, which has given me the wonderful response 'What an interesting assumption', otherwise I might have a full blown argument with her.
BG - I have been with my fiance for less than a year, however I have known him, and been friends with him for years and years. We are both Christians who are waiting until we are married until we 'bump uglies', as the wonderful workmate puts it. This was my 'thing' and my fiance was more than understanding about it. end BG.
My workmate cannot comprehend our choices, at all. She actually seems rather offended by it.
Thus, she decided that the only reason we are getting married is to, as she kindly puts it, 'bump uglies without your parents getting cross. Why else would you get engaged so soon?'
She's not even bothered about the Christian thing - no no, it must be our parents that we risk annoying, because she is a worldly 32 and I am only 22 who is living at home until I am married.
Despite my brain screaming at me that I had no need to justify myself to this woman, I originally explained that we got engaged because we loved each other, and we were engaged so soon after we started going out because we already knew each other so well and were able to bypass the 'getting to know you' stage. Not to mention that our engagement will be over a year long.
She's getting personal now though, and she's started insinuating that my fiance must have something wrong with him if he's happy to wait until we're married. Or that he must be having an affair because 'all men do - especially those who have partneres that 'deny them.'
'What an interesting assumption has saved me so far - but she's stepping it up everyday. I'm thinking about going to the Boss, but I'm only a temp and she's a full time employee, who's been there for years. It's quite the predicament.
