Here are some comebacks:

You haven't asked yet.

I was hoping to do something meaningful with my life.

Because I just love hearing this question.

Just lucky, I guess.

It gives my mother something to live for.

My fiancíŽ is awaiting his/her parole.

I'm still hoping for a shot at Miss/Mr. America.

Do you know how hard it is to get two tickets to Miss Saigon?

I'm waiting until I get to be your age.

It didn't seem worth a blood test.

I already have enough laundry to do, thank you.

Because I think it would take all the spontaneity out of dating.

My co-op board doesn't allow spouses.

I'd have to forfeit my billion dollar trust fund.

They just opened a great singles bar on my block.

I wouldn't want my parents to drop dead from sheer happiness.

I guess it just goes to prove that you can't trust those voodoo doll rituals.

What? And lose all the money I've invested in running personal ads?

I don't want to have to support another person on my paycheck.

Why aren't you thin?

I'm married to my career, although recently we have been considering a trial separation.

Bonus reply for Single Mothers: Because having a husband and a child would be redundant.

Gawd!....If I had a dollar for every time I heard that one...

I have to memorize this.

I'm extraordinarily lucky because my "wife" was married years ago, and there's no divorce in this country. She used to badger me to help her get an annulment, which is legal here and is simply double-speak for a divorce, but I countered by saying marriage was forever, and she had to live with it.
So I'm home free! No marriage for me

Divorce is too expensive. Live together, be happy.

I couldn't handle all the sex.

Being unappreciated is much cheaper when you're single.

I like making my own decisions.

No permission slips required.

I like spending MY money on me.

I know how to cook, clean and do laundry.

I REALLY like not being nagged.

Freedom is free.

My favorite answer:

Because I love him - why would I want to go and get married? That would mess up all our happiness!

Seems to work, and I usually hear an "amen" or "right on" from bystanders - likely and often divorced! LOL
