Today, after thirteen years of engagement, my fiancé and I split. As is, with the day, we changed our facebook relationships to make it official. I logged back on tonight to find his mother, the woman I've spent the last year looking after and having a good time, 'liking' the break up. FML

Show it anyway

you were ENGAGED for 13 whole years without ever tying the knot?

thats what I was thinking....what would be the purpose of that? did you get engaged at 16 and you are waiting for him to get established and he still wasnt at 29? I feel sorry for you, this sucks, but didnt you at some point realize he was not serious about it when you were engaged for 13 years?

I know thats the first thing i thought. WTF 13 years of engagement. I bet their still virgins :D LOLOLOL im number 69

57, you got point! No seriously what the hell. OP, I bet the mother was like "jesus christ get this bitch away from me, marry her or dump her fuck"

You know some people get engaged but decide to not get married because it's too expensive or they dont want to go through the hassle of a wedding or other things but decide to be more than bf and gf but dont want to go through marrige. Jeeze, everyone shouldnt be all why arn't you married!!!

That's understandable and all... but /13 years/ is more than a little much.

You know when you've been "FACEBOOKED". ;)

can't you just get married in a court with some witneses

that was for 99's. so it wouldn't to expensive or a hassle

13 YEARS??? wowwww

In all honesty she is supposed to take her son's side... so it may be a comfort thing for all you know.

How is it taking the son's side?

Even if she was taking the son's side, it's still really rude to do something like that.. taking someone's side doesn't mean you have to like that she's upset.

I agree with #2, it's not like she should like the OP's status. She's not gonna say "My son was a dead weight anyway, you don't need him."

When did a like turn into life or death? Seriously, since there's not many buttons, a like could mean anything from "I'm sorry" to "Dude that's awesome"

i wouldnt look too far into this. ive seen people "like" people commenting on having colds, being sad a celebrity died, having to work double shifts, etc. people abuse the "like" button like its the only button out there.

So you're saying there should be an acknowledge button??? Aren't there enough buttons on Facebook?

I agree, in the same way that people abuse the "You deserved it" button on FML. //btw, thinking that posting something to facebook makes it official is a pretty stupid philosophy in general.

Moms are never loyal to gfs. Only their kids. Sorry OP

Ouch. Stick a pillow over the old bitches face. Also; you should have known once that lucky number 13 rolled around you'd break up. It's just inevitable.

WTF thirteen year engagement?!

I agree -- Shit or get off the pot. Unless you're waiting to graduate from school (And even then -- Why the heck get engaged before graduation?), you stay engaged long enough to plan the wedding and get your house in order. His mother is probably just happy that now her son has a reasonable chance of getting married before she dies. After a few years, it was probably clear to her that even if the OP was a great gal, there was no marriage in the future.

Ya my engagement was beginning to drag on at 2 years so I set a date and we were only engaged for 3 years holy crap 13?

Yeah wtf is right! no wonder you failed...

Sometimes you have to have a longer engagement (although, I agree, 13 years is far too long) For instance, me and my fiancé have set the date for our wedding and it is in two years, because we are waiting for me to graduate . We are, however, using this extra time to our advantage . Finding a place to live and such .

Why didnt you get married after that long?

meh just ignore her and give no more fuck about her

why the fuck were u engaged for 13 years???

well, depending on the circumstances of your breakup, she could like the breakup. who really cares what his mom thinks about anyway? you and your bf broke up, it's not like you are going to be spending anymore quality time with her.

Why all these retarded Facebook FMLs? YDI for caring so much about your facebook status and comments. Fucking stupid.
