You can disable the bigger space at the end of a sentence with the 
spacing key from \setuplanguage but as you can see from the example 
below ~ creates a normal space.

\setuppapersize[A8]

\starttext

Mr. \vrule John Doe

Mr.~\vrule John Doe

Mr.\nobreakspace\vrule John Doe

Mr.\ \vrule John Doe

Mr.\narrownobreakspace\vrule John Doe

\blank

Mr. \vrule John Doe

\setuplanguage [en] [spacing=packed]

Mr. \vrule John Doe

\stoptext
