Am I the only one? (this question is aimed at unmarried moms but anyone can answer)

Who gets annoyed when people assume the my SO is my husband? I mean i know it shouldnt bother me, but it does. I cant quite firgure out why.. I guess more cuz peope just assuming stuff.. I dont have to be married to have a happy family.. and i gues it bugs me when people call him my hubby without even bothering to ask if we are amarried are not! does anyone else ever feel this way or am i just wierd?

  • I feel the opposite. I'd rather they assume we are married than assume that we are just shakin up together.

  • Maybe it bothers you cause deep down you want to be married.

  • It doesn't bother me because I think it is funny when they think were married then they automatically think he's my sons father and ( they look nothing alike) and say wow your son looks so much like you : ) We laugh, one of his freinds cusins said " man I think Sancho visited your house"

  • When I address mom's here at cafe mom that might be either single, married, or have a partner.. I don't try to assume but it does happen... I don't think it is intentional to hurt your feelings or make you mad.. it just happens ... sorry =(

  • I had my first two kids before my husband and I got married. It never bothered me when people asked me if we were married. Unless you are totally against marriage or you know that you will never marry this guy then I don't see what the problem is.

  • I agree with anon 12:06
    You not being married and having a family is fine if that is what you want.
    But people who view a family and have morals most likely will think that
    you are married.
    What is it with you people today...playing house before you get married.
