Growing up in the Church…
So a friend of mine has been married for a few months now, and she was telling me that people are already bugging her if she says she’s not feeling well, of that she’s gained weight, wanting to know if she is pregnant “yet.”
Here’ s what I told her, feel free to add your own thoughts below…
I have some bad news for you.
It’s called the “Christian Fellowship Three-Step.” It goes like this…
First: “Ohhhhh…are you two DATING?”
This means that you have been seen eating with, speaking to, or breathing the same air as a member of the opposite sex. This is usually HS/College age stuff, but can linger into young adult groups. You know, you’ve been there.
Second: “Ohhhh…are you two getting MARRIED?”
Translated: You’ve dated twice.
Third: “Ohhhh…are you guys PREGNANT?”
IE: You’ve been married for more that 24 hours and they suspect that you’ve had sex by now. BTW, there is NO statute of limitations on this question. We were getting it ten years into our marriage. I finally just started telling people, “Nope, I have a zero sperm count.” Tell your hubby that this line works REALLY well, lol.
