You can’t change anyone else’s behavior. You can only change your response. Instead of letting them push your buttons, turn on your sense of humor.

” I need to get my master’s so I can get a good job and your son can stay home, drink beer and watch football.”

When I used to work in ER we were taught a technique to stay cool when people are ragging on you.

Imagine a white veil that covers you from head to toe. None of your FL’s remarks can penetrate that veil.

If you want to maintain  a good relationship, it’s certainly not worth giving an ultimatum over.

I would just get up and leave the instant they started and tell them why. They should get the hint pretty quickly.

Maybe you Fiance needs to be more forceful/stern when he tell his parents you both are waiting.  If it comes up during one of your dinner visit, you could tell Fiance to tell his parents that they need to respect both your decision, quit brining it up or you will not be going over to dinner anymore. If he won’t then you don’t go over for dinner and if they ask why you are not there, then your Fiance can say because buggaboo6 doesn’t want to hear about marriage, baby making, etc.
