If they ask around you, you could play it off as though you don’t know what he paid. My fiance bought my ring and I don’t know what he paid. So for me, if anyone asked me, I’d say I don’t know.

I say, “Oh you know.”  Then, I usually smile and let the silence grow. *crickets*

When my co-worker’s Mother-In-Law asked her how much the ring was, she said: “just enough. any less I might have left him.” She said that left her speechless.

Wow- I am shocked that they are so inappropriate!! How awful. I would definitely deflect and not give them any more information ever. Just be dodgy with them. You are adults and if they don’t pay your bills it’s NONE of their business. I would make it seem like it’s a personal thing between the two of you (because it is!!!) and just say that now that you are engaged you don’t feel you should share your finances anymore. But in a nice way, like many of the other people have posted. Make a joke of it, or just act super offended so they will feel stupid for asking.
