Easy There Tyger: "So when are you thinking of starting a family?"

What is it about getting married, or being in a committed relationship for any period of time that makes the world and its mother think it can declare open season on your uterus?

He’s almost 6 now and I haven’t been asked that in awhile. Thank god.
