Yup - the engagement question was the absolute worst, agreed!

Mind you, we were together for over 5 years before he finally asked, and clearly I was at my wit's end about the whole thing and was not feeling good about the situation! Why would anyone think it's okay to ask that?! UGH.
I sometimes wonder if the folks who mention getting an invitation seriously think they will be getting one, or are they just saying it just for the heck of saying it. I've kinda rehearsed this line, "Oh..we are having a destination wedding with only our immediate families and a handful of childhood friends or very close relatives. We will try to plan something for our extended family and friends later on down the road". I know we aren't. But that seems to appease them.
