signedconfessions:  You can’t control their behavior, but you can control your response. Simply don’t engage. Stop letting them push your buttons and live your lives on your terms.

Wow that is so frustrating! Your SO needs to stand up to them and insist that they stop harassing you about it. Every time it comes up I would just ignore them or say “we have it figured out already but that’s for your concern”, smile, repeat as necessary.

I also come from a culture that demands complete compliance from children no matter what age they are. My parents have learned not to push their beliefs on me because they know that I will do what I choose and leave them out if necessary. 

It is worrisome that you have allowed your in-laws to pressure you into an engagement.
