5 things you shouldn’t ask someone who is in a happy long-term relationship

August 5, 2015

I was again inspired by a post by Little Misadventures where she wrote about things you should never say to a single woman. It’s a pretty funny post, so check it out.

I’ve been in a relationship for almost 8 years now, and I get asked a lot of questions and get a lot of comments that people should probably think twice about before sharing. So I thought I’d share those with you. If you know me personally, at least you know what to avoid!


Dont ask

1. Why aren’t you married yet?

This one is a very popular one. When people ask this, I always just giggle, but all I want to say is ‘How is that any of your business?’ It’s pretty funny how people think it’s an appropriate thing to ask just because we’ve been together a long time. You could probably compare it to me asking a single girl ‘Why don’t you have a boyfriend yet?’ It’s quite a personal question.

2. Don’t you miss being single?

No. If I wanted to be single, I would be single. If you meet someone who has been in a relationship for 8 years, you probably shouldn’t ask them if they miss being single. Why would you want to put that idea into their heads?

3. Don’t you get sick of each other?

No we don’t. That’s why we’re still together! No relationship is perfect, and sure, there are moments where we would probably be by ourselves and do our own thing for a while. But we love each other, and I don’t know about him, but I miss him as soon as he goes away. Even if it’s just for a day!

4. How often do you have sex?

Luckily, I haven’t really been asked this question, but I’ve heard of others that have. That’s just not an OK thing to ask. Ever. (Unless you’re super close friends who talk about everything). It would pretty much be the same as me asking a single woman how often she masturbates! Inappropriate central.

5. When will you have babies?

Whenever we decide the time is right. You’ll know when it happens, because you know.. the baby will be right there.


So those are the questions you should never ask a person in a long-term relationship. Hopefully they’re pretty obvious to most of you! Haha.

Have you ever been asked any inappropriate questions? Let me know in the comments section!

    Some of those are very rude and nobody’s business.

    Oh my goodness… the ridiculousness of some people! I honestly think some people just don’t know any better, and the ones that do have nothing better to do than to be super nosey! I love your responses though, they made me giggle 😛

      Haha thanks! I probably ask inappropriate questions from time to time too, but I don’t think I would ask any of them! 🙂

        I would hope that I wouldn’t ask any of those questions either but we’re only human so I know I’ve made my fair share of booboos along the way. But gosh I sure hope I never asked anyone anything like those though!

          Haha exactly. As soon as I ask something that I immediately regret, I feel so embarrassed!

            I still get embarrassed over things that I have said or did years ago let alone things I do recently, so I totally get you. Stupid foot, how did it end up in my mouth again? >_< lol

    Oh my, I can’t believe people ask the 4th question lol! It is so personal! I feel like 1 and 5 are the most popular ones, especially nowadays – I see so many of my friends getting married and having babies and I am only in my early 20s!

      Yeah I’m the same! Except I’m in my late 20s, haha. But my friends started having kids when I was in my early 20s and sometimes I feel like I’m so behind! Haha.
