    Why aren't you married? - catchy come back phrases

    Salaam to all

    I'm tired of aunties, family and friends asking the dreaded question "why aren't you married"? The other day, whilst driving, my mind was trying to understand why people see marriage as the ultmimate purpose in life. Even of you're successful in your own ways, but you're not married, all of that success goes to waste. That's even more true of you're a woman. So I tried to really bring it back to the basics, what is the one undeniable truth in this life? That we will one day breathe our last breath. So I figured, next time an aunty or whoever else asks me this question, I'll say: dear, I'm not waiting to get married, what I'm waiting for is death. Latter is something I know will happen to me. As for marriage, I don't have a guarantee that it'll happen so I'm not placing all my hopes in that. That'll keep them quiet hopefully.

    So to my sisters out there who face the same predicament, what's your comeback phrase?

    Ever.
    As tempting as it might be. :] )


    edit-------------

    Just realised OP is from a sister and is addressing sisters.
    I guess it still applies to brothers, though.
    Good one.

    'I'm after your son, Aunty Ji.. may I have him. I have envisioned the future with him' (lol joke, don't try that one)
    No one asks me this, I'm the 2nd youngest in 5 siblings, none of whom are married yet. Lol plus if people ask, my parents are always like (to us) ignore them, and they get annoyed when people get nosy or awkward about this, so they're on our side, always Alhamdulillah
    Some people have said funny things on this thread
    And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in the land and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record”

    They'll be so shocked about the tattoo idea that their attention will shift.

    Re: Why aren't you married? - catchy come back phrases

    My uncle asked me that at my brother's wedding a few years back. Actually he said are you next on the list and I said nope too much of a pain. He whispered 'i agree, not worth it.' With his wife a few feet away..aha. He's funny.

    Other than that no one ever asks me. They don't even ask when I'm gonna get a boyfriend anymore. I think they're giving up

    Just say you're not interested in marriage right now and move on. If they keep pushing it tell them to mind their business. But say it in a nice way obviously especially if it's family.

    The following may not be appropriate for a real auntie... but would drop the jaws for fake aunties and ladies in their 30s and 40s..

    Fake auntie "when are you getting married?"
    You "When your husband divorces you... unless of course, he wants both of us", then smile sweetly.

    I must warn, however, it may give you a bad reputation - but married women will stay well away from you!

    Best catchphrase from a woman who is not married.

    "I can make money on my own, thank you very much"

    My response:

    We all living out of our decree... it will happen when it's meant to, I aint stressing, why are you?!
    “Mu'min” is more that just a title. It is to have Imaan established in the heart and testified to by the limbs.

    Do you have a legitimate reason to delay the Sunnah of the messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم?

    If you have the means and are old enough, you should get married,

    Allah عز و جل says marriage helps us lower our he and guard our modesty, acts as a shield against Munkar

    lol
    Ya Allah,
    Make me a stronger person today. Make me a better person out of all these. It is no longer bearable for me for my heart is aching and You are the only One who knows how I feel. Nothing is making sense to myself and for anyone else for that matter especially to the one person I wish to understand me better than anybody else.
