One day not too long after our wedding and honeymoon, Y and I are at work. When we finish with work that day, one of our coworkers talks with Y. I can’t hear what they talk about, but Y tells me a bit later. Here goes:
Coworker: “So, when is it due?”
Y: “When is what due?”
Coworker: “You know, you and your wife…”
Y: “What the hell are you talking about?”
Coworker: “The baby! When is the expected date of delivery?”
Y: “Huh. That’s not why we married.”
Coworker: “Oh. So she’s not pregnant?”
Our coworker isn’t the only one who thought that we married because I was pregnant (I wasn’t). After all, who would be so crazy as to get married out of love after being together for less than half a year?
Has anyone ever thought you married for reasons different than the ones you married for?
