We ll cross that bridge when we come to it

One meaning of “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.” would be taking an issue that hasn’t yet arisen, and saying not to worry about it until it actually happens.

Example: You are eating a lot of really yummy candy. Your mother walks in and tells you that you could get a stomach ache. You say, “I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.” because your stomach doesn’t hurt yet. And you don’t want to stop eating them tasty candies.
