I agree it is really irritating when some of your 'well wishers' intrude into private space too much. In today's times there are lot of women who get pregnant and do not intend to get married or marry after some years, there are many examples of famous celebrities, who lived in, gave birth to kids, got married at a later stage or even moved on. You can answer in any way you want, you can say that your partner would not make a great nanny hence why bother getting married. I mean take a deep breath and use your sense of humor.

Hi Justa--

Yeah---Rudeness of some people is just unfathomable ......

The closest thing I can get to "polite" on this one is to brush it off with, "it's way too long and personal of a story .......".....and introduce another topic.

Have you ever seen "Miss Manners" (Judith Manners?) articles in newspapers?  I would suggest writing her, and see what her suggestion is----she generally has some good answers to rude/tackless questions.....

Please keep us updated!
