From VIBE Vixen —  The other day a few friends and I were having a casual conversation about life when one of them mentioned wanting to move. It went a little something like this:

Friend 1 – “I really want to move into the city, but it’s SO expensive and I can only pay $1100″

Me – “You can find something for that…it will be small as hell though.”

Friend 2 – “You and Jeff* never thought about moving in together?”

Friend 1 – With disgusted face “Oh no, no. Not until I get married or at least engaged. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free.”

Me – “Girl please he’s been getting the milk for free so cut it out.”

Friend 1 – “What do you mean? How do you know he’s getting the milk?”

MAJOR side-eye

Me – “Ummm, because he’s been your man for 6 years and you’ve mentioned him spending the night.”

Silence

Why? Just Why?! It really annoys me when women use the “Why buy the cow…” line, especially when they know damn well that they are already giving away the proverbial “milk.” Why couldn’t she just say she won’t do it because she’s not ready or simply because she prefers to be married first?
