How to answer "THAT" question...

"So... why aren't you married yet?"

We've all heard it... we all hate it... we'll all hear it again a few more times from Aunt Lynn, Grandma Betsy, the Relief Society president in our parents' ward, and probably the singles ward bishop.

Here are a few responses to throw their way when they pop that ever-unfortunate question.
Thanks goes to Erin Ann McBride at Meridian Magazine.

“She was killed in the war in heaven.”

“Prop 8 ruined it for me.”

“Why aren’t you thin?”

“My mother says no one is good enough for me. “

“I suppose it doesn’t help that underneath my clothes my entire body is covered in scales.” (Paraphrasing Bridget Jones’ Diary)

“I’m still hoping for a shot at Miss America.”

“I just haven’t met you yet.”

“I paid for a lifetime membership on eHarmony, and don’t want to lose my investment.”


  1. I love it Ashley! haha it brought a smile to my face. We should do lunch or something together soon. You still have access to my blog right?

  2. These are funny answers! I've been asked that question several times and I usually laugh politely and say, "I'm just on my own timeline, that's why!"

  3. I am going to agree with the mom answer. . . ."no one is good enough." And I believe it completely in your case!!

  4. This is hilarious. Wait until your family dentist asked you why you aren't married, that's embarrassing. Love ya Ash!

    i am using them.
    i bet you get asked ALL the time!
    really .. why arent you married yet?!
    you are the best.
    thank you for the little party at your house!
    i miss you.

  6. That eHarmony one is pretty convincing. haha.

  7. I have never received this question. Is it because everyone understands why im not married?! Please say no.

  8. I've toyed with the idea of telling people I'm a lesbian...
