Ugh, yes. My late mother was the worst with that, the woman just wouldn't accept "no." MIL was not so militant about it, thank God, and now she's finally accepted it (it helps that my DH's little sister gave her two grandkids). Once, a woman that I didn't know well at all felt the need to remind me that "[my]clock was ticking down, so [I'd] better get busy." I was so po'd I could barely speak. When I finally could manage words, I let her know that her unsolicited advice was merely aggravating to me
, since being childfree was a choice for me, but had I been someone who was struggling with infertility, it would have been downright rude and heartbreaking, and that in the future, she might want to think twice before discussing such a personal topic with someone she didn't know well. You should have seen her face!
