Not sure I understand your question.  If you want to stop pills regardless, you won’t get pregnant from having had sex weeks ago if you stop them now.  However, if you want to wait until after youre married to get pregnant, then you should stop taking them after you get married or use another method

Hmm the way you phrased your question is a little confusing, but maybe this will help-

When you have sex, the guys sperm can live for a FEW days (think 3 at the most) inside you.  If you are on birth control and are taking regularly as directed (same time every day, not missing any days) you have almost no chance of getting pregnant.  

Once you stop taking birth control all bets are off.  If you have sex you could end up pregnant. (unless you are still using condoms to prevent).  If you wont be having sex, no birth control is fine, if you are still going to be sexually active then you’d need some form of prevention- birth control condoms etc.

You can stop them as soon as you stop having sex. If you don’t plan on stopping the sex, then don’t stop the pills
