“Due to covert work I do for the government, we can’t consider marriage yet.”

“I’m waiting for Crazy Aunt Mary to die off – we don’t want her kind of drama at our wedding!”

“Soon, but I wanted to climb Mt. Everest/run a triathalon/finish school (etc) before I got hitched!”

“What? Didn’t you hear?  BF and I have decided we don’t believe in the institution of marriage.”

“I’m not getting married until our goverment lets everyone get married.” (if you want to make a marriage equality statement.)

Honestly – those kinda questions suck and are rude – when I was in that boat, I found the best way to deal with this was with a silly statement (I used Mt. Everest quite a bit) – people got the hint!

“As soon as people stop asking about it.”

I actually didn’t get much further questioning when I just said “eh, you know, eventually. We aren’t in a hurry”. Even though I was haha!

Ask him – then point to your Boyfriend or Best Friend (if you want to make a statement to your BF) lol

Otherwise everything that pp’s said!

Before Fiance and I got engaged, I got asked that soo many times, I finally got mad and said “none of your damn business….next question..” lol That stopped the questioning.

I usually say, “ask my SO.”

 I wouldn’t actually say this, except around close relatives who understand my humor, but, “Only after the baby arrives!”

@love108:  I tried that once with a family member who really should have known better…. did not go over well because for the next 3 months they asked about the pregnancy instead!

To the OP: We used the same line that @Taeyers: used! It seemed to get the point across. We had a 2 year engagement so you can imagine. And trust me, after the wedding, the questions do not stop… the next one on the list is “when are you going to have a baby?”…….. to me that one is even more rude/obnoxious/annoying

“When _______(your SO name) finds all his ducks that have gone missing and finally get’s those buggers lined up!”

That’s my new one since it’s no secret my SO is the type of guy who likes to have all his ducks in a row 🙂 Or I’ll say, Oh yeah, my SO? He’s still searching for that rogue duck. and then people are like, huh? And I say, yeah. The missing duck is key – can’t get his ducks in a row with one missing!
