Today, I got engaged. My family is already placing bets on how long it will take for my fiancée to "wise up and ditch" me. FML

8-That shooting was a serious American tragedy asshole, you can't just make a joke out of something like that. Go find some ******* decency. Lololol jk I'm not a moralfag

Yeah guys! If the marriage fails because it's your fault, go kill your family! Makes total sense. -_-

Don't know why you put the quotation marks around family. I mean your comment makes no sense.

They're sarcastic quotes. You know, to indicate sarcasm. Like this: Your reply shows that you're "smart"

31, Way to put me down. Yes it's true I didn't understand the comment at first but that doesn't mean I'm dumb. :/

43 she never called you dumb or stupid. She made an example in her previous comment.

44, I'm not going to argue on here, it's childish.

And this is coming from the person who doesn't understand sarcasm?

The only advice here is prove them wrong.

Best advise is how they treat and love each other

Or not take them seriously. My family would joke around with something like that you know sibling tough love.

That's why marriage is between two people. You aren't suppose to leave & cleave just for fun, but to keep all the nay sayers from ruining your marriage.

One should not allow others to control their life decisions... They may be correct about divorce in the future, but perhaps for the wrong reasons. If it comes down to divorce, a family bet shouldnt stop OP from leaving his/fiancé. I wish you the best of luck with your marriage, OP!!!

You have some mean family members. Don't invite them to the wedding if they keep it up

jeez that sucks. haha, show em theyre wrong.

My family is as guilty of ribbing each other as the next, but in this instance, it's taking it a bit far. How could they not be supportive of you? My mind is boggled here.

If her whole family thinks like that, maybe OP is particularly bitchy or bizarre and they have pretty good reason to believe it won't work out.

Let's see how long it takes you to "Wise up and ditch your family"!

I'd place a bet too. Then, I'd go tell my partner to pretend to leave me in front of my whole family at the time I bet they would. As a result, I'd get to keep my partner and all my family's money.

Your family thinks higher of her than you? You must not realize you're probably an asshole towards your fiancée. Sometimes the outside looking in are right.

Huge red flag when your fiancee's own family tells you to run.

#56, Huge red flag, indeed. Hope both take this as a wake-up call.

Sounds more like he comes from a family of assholes and they just assumed that he's one too.
