We know them, we have them…our amazing friends that used to drink with us till dawn and do all the fun stuff with. Then they got married. I am not sulking. Or bitter. But if you can relate, this post is for you.
They give you the “pity” look. Changing your prefix to Mrs or wearing a ring does not make you the end all or be all for people who lead happy lives. We are single not dying!
They suddenly have solid relationship advice. Most of which usually end with “when you get married, you will understand”.
They want to know when you will join them in marriage-hood. Hmn hmn. You cannot wait to have ENOUGH money to marry. (Even though his reception was done at Oriental Hotel in Lagos).
They go on way too many double dates. It’s like during the courtship, a date is strictly between two people. But after the wedding, a date suddenly involves a group of people. In married pairs. Bye bye single friends. First of all, we get that we single folks may be constant reminders of some forms of fun that you can no longer have. But we can give objective advice too. You can’t just kick us to the curb because you’re married. You didn’t kick us when we were purchasing the aso-ebis and cheering you on at the wedding. Ok. So maybe I am a little bitter.
They attend all the weddings. Together. Really people? This is how you make us feel. Honestly.
They run out of examples that don’t contain their spouse’s name. “for example if ________(insert name of spouse) was in charge of that transaction…… “
All their stories are told in plural. “When we went to Dubai” “when Temi and I were cooking” ”we went to visit his grandma”. Errm, do you not do things alone anymore?
They have an unlimited/unending supply of native attires. Tailors must love new weds. Everything has to be sewn in twos… happy times. I don’t even know how they do it.
