Well, DH family member that is. I posted her wedding picture here a few years back under mellow yellow monday, I think. Anyway, her two daughters got married a few months apart. There was a saying from where I grew up that sharing a wedding year with your siblings is bad. And usually one must wait at least a year before tying the knot.
The youngest one got engaged out of the blue and married within a month of engagement. I do not have a problem with marrying right away but at least know the other person first at least a year. It doesn't matter if you already known that person since grade school. It is very different being together and just knowing. Well, that marriage ended last year. After their two years wedding anniversary. I think I also posted about this and DH and I bet that maybe she is pregnant, if not the marriage will not last. And yeah, there you go.
The oldest from what I gathered planned the wedding and I think asked the man to marry her instead of the other way around. Again, I do not find anything wrong with what she did. However, I guessed the man did it for lust because right now he is living with his parents and my niece is left alone in their own apartment and he comes and goes as he pleases. I told my DH, ah-ah...whether stay or be gone if I am her. And DH knew it, because he share the same feeling when it comes to relationship.
Anyway, DH and I are waiting for her to end it all because we have a better and more responsible man for her. Well, yesterday the questioned arises again because SIL was talking about it and our nephew (her son) guessed it would be our friend that was a farmer (not anymore because he traveled around the world (16 countries) and gave up on farming because the government always bother him), mind you this young man is business oriented and very nice, very handsome and tall enough (actually taller than DH). DH asked her sister, "what is wrong with V"? I begun thinking maybe because he is not a paper pusher. I cannot understand what she likes on a man for her daughter.
Was she judging people now that she is a teacher? Mind you she married a low life, selfish man when she was 18 years old, and stayed with him until she finished her teaching degree and dropped him when he least expected and now married to a degree snob principal of IU 20 public school?
Then DH continue on telling her that no, not him, it is G that you already met here at our house not too long ago. DH dropped the conversation after that because he don't want to hear what she have to say about G. G got a a business degree and hard working. However, he might look like a little person next to her daughter because she is a tall women. Almost as tall as DH I think and G is just a little taller than DH and have the same body as DH. Not muscular but fit and no extra fat. She might also make a comment not liking the guy because he share the same belief as DH and I. That would be her problem.
I am baffled of her reaction. I hated people trying to know you with your degree and how many. I rather marry a farmer, shoe maker, carpenter, toy maker, or any one knowing any trade than a paper pusher. But then again, every person is different that is why they say....there is someone for everyone.
Only venting today.
