If I have one more person tell DH and I that we are not a family because we don't have kids, someone is going to have to send me bail money! We became a family the day we said I Do The latest was when I was inquiring about military housing at a unit we had put down as a choice to move to and someone asked why I wanted to know, as housing is for families. WTH?! What do you THINK we are? Ugh...

Ugh, so annoying. People need to learn to stfu when it comes to whether someone has kids or not. There are lots of people who have fertility issues or are waiting for whatever reason and it's a sore subject. I feel you on the housing situation. My husband and I moved across the country a few years ago (before kids). We found a rental house than we absolutely loved. It was a great neighborhood, plenty of space, and a beautiful fenced yard. We were really excited because the landlord had implied that they would give us the house when we met them for a tour. Then they emailed the next day saying that as much as they had liked us they decided to rent to a couple who had children since the house had 3 bedrooms and was in a good school district. It really hurt because I was dying to have a baby at that point and to know that a lot of people thought less of us because we were childless.

That's awful of them. You're a family, whether there are kids or not.
I'd try to ignore them, that's how I handled it before we had a baby. It's especially frustrating when it's family that tells you that.
I'm sorry you're dealing with this.
