No partner, so no hassle from the in-laws. But my mother likes to talk about "when I'm a grandmother" or "my grandchildren". Not entirely sure where said grandchildren are going to come from- I do not want to be a parent and I'm an only child. She is fully aware of my feelings on the matter but doesn't seem to take me seriously. And with so many friends getting married and having children, I find myself hassled more and more by just about everyone to start husband hunting and having babies- the former I don't want for a long time; the latter, never. With your MIL, have you tried explaining to her what you've said here? After all, you're 12 years younger than when she had your fiance!
