My default response for this type of conversation has become, “Well do you want to raise them for me? No? Ok then, STFU.”

“My husband and I have decided that we don’t want to have children, we are satisfied with our lives as it is, we are looking forward to having some pets, and we just don’t like children that much.

Repeat from now until infinity. Your lives, your choice. .

Mothers/MILs are the worst. I think it stems from the fact that our kids will always be our children. But at some point it is our jobs as mothers to cut the cord and respect our adult children’s decisions for their own lives. I’m saying this also for myself as a mother who hopefully doesn’t constantly cross the line and intrude on her children’s future decisions.
