There are a few

"He is an only child so it is time for another" - personal decision by a couple anyway but it took 3 years to get pregnant and I am now 40.

"He should go to a formal pre-school" - He is at a home day care and she has a curriculum. More importantly, how does a working mom with an hour commute each way transport son to pre-school 3 days a week for a couple of hours. DH also has the same commute. Yes, we can find a new place but he has been at his daycare for 3 years and loves it. Again, personal decision.

"Why are you working?" Personal decision again. We have a normal home that has a mortgage. The mortgage will not be paid by one income as hubby and I make average salaries.

oh there are so many more......

To be truthful, most of the time neither did the men. But underwear evolved from men's trousers. And only fast women wore men's clothing. It wasn't until the industrial revolution, that women started wearing anything under their petticoats. Young girls wore pantaloons first because their dresses were the shortest. And most of them were crotchless for ease in going to the bathroom.

Chiming in a week late here but your post cracked me up. Next time someone says that just tell them that for most of history it was the loose women who wore underwear. Nice girls didn't.

Right off the top of my head, Jess, I can name to you three occasions where this has been said to me.


1st time- close friend, childless at the time.
