Some folks know that is not socially acceptable to ask personal questions, but they go ahead and ask anyway. These nosy people seem to think that the rules of social etiquette don’t apply to them.
You have no obligation to explain the personal details of your life to anyone, especially people who can’t respect personal boundaries. Maybe you have a narcissistic relative or acquaintance who tramples all over your feelings and won’t take no for an answer.
