    It drives us crazy when people ask when we are getting married. We aren't going to. People think its funny to ask, but it really gets on our nerves when people try to interfere.

    Marriage. Been there done that 3x. Never again. It took at LOT of work and effort to recover financially. Divorces are very bad for your credit history when your wife dumps you and leaves you with every bill and credit card SHE was responsible for running to the max and leaves you holding.

    My last relationship was with my GF who died suddenly after fifteen years of living together. She wanted to be married, I refused. It caused problems, but it didn’t overwhelm us. A week after she died a hospital bill was sent to my house in her name. It was almost 250k. It was sent back with a copy of her death certificate in it. Haven’t heard a word since.

    How old are you? Because it annoys me when people over 40 refer to someone they are a dating as "girlfriend".

    Its fine to have a laugh in the ok corral, but in real life when people keep asking, it causes a lot of unneeded stress. Its like they try to drive a wedge between us for their own amusement.

    It IS annoying, but they don’t mean any harm... they’re just brainwashed.

    One thing that annoys me: When folks use ‘I’ instead of ‘Me’. Here’s a quick way to tell if using ‘I’ or ‘Me’ is appropriate when combined with another person. Simply remove the other person from the sentence.

    So, it sounds nonsensical to say ‘One thing that annoys I’. But ‘One thing that annoys Me’ sounds just fine.

    I was going to start a thread on this but figured I'd hijack this one instead (sorry, @Upgrayedd )
    I'm over 50 and I have a girlfriend. Like the OP, we're not going to get married.
    Believe me, I get it. It is annoying to me also to call her my GF but what else am I supposed to call her?
    Its just awkward to say this is my "significant other" all the time.
