How do I handle this situation?

I am in my 30's, I have a 12 year old son and I am 5 months pregnant. I am going to my cousin's wedding tomorrow and I am not looking forward to seeing my family. My family keeps asking over and over, even after I give them the answer they ask again "So are you and your boyfriend going to get married? Are you guys living together?" My patience and tolerance is wearing very thin... Suggestions?

  • Answer it the first time someone asks. Then, every person that asks after that, direct them to the first person, saying "I've already answered that today, you'll have to talk to so-and-so".
    Or, just tell them they're being nosy. You can ask when they plan to divorce their current spouse, or some other ridiculous personal nosy question.

  • Bring some Mr.Potato noses with you. When someone asks the question, give them a nose. When they ask why you did that, tell them " Well I was worried that your nose was getting tired".

  • I would say "yeah, we eloped in Hawaii" just to shut everyone up.
