I wish I wasn't though. My boyfriend and I are both 17, my mom is 42, my boyfriend's dad is like This is so messed up. I'm shaking and I don't know what to do or who to tell, so I'm posting thi shere - sorry if I'm being incoherent, this is fresh news and I'm freaking out.
A year and a half ago, my mom and dad divorced. They decided that they just weren't right for each other anymore, that they had outgrown their love and that staying together would only do more harm than good, so they left.
A week later, my dad got engaged to a woman who had barely turned I don't know if he was cheating while with my mom and to be honest I don't want to find out, I'm trying to move on and accept what it is. She's a nice lady but the circumstances are horrible. So my dad kept the house while my mom and I moved to a rural city in Vermont, the deal being that I'd visit my dad once a month and Skype him weekly which I haven't been very good at tbh.
I instantly fell in love with Vermont. The beautiful colors of the fall, the lively lakes, huge forests, rolling hills, tree-clad mountains. And this boy, Letterbox. Nothing particularly movie-esque, he just asked me out and I said yes.
Then we kept going on dates. Now it's more than that, and I truly love him, every single part of him and his person is amazing. He's tall with curly hair, big brown eyes and the prettiest cheekbones i've ever seen in my life. He's so giving and loving and fantastic. He feels the same way for what I know. My mom has known Letterbox since the beginning, as he's slept over a couple times, although we've mainly been at his place because my mom's bedroom is right next to mine which is awkward.
Letterbox's dad is very dad-like. In this entire time, my mom has been enjoying her new job as a personal shopper for a small shop, met some local friends and even been going on a few dates! I hadn't met the man she was seeing, but I was really happy for her. I can imagine that my dad marrying a younger woman must've been hard she was practically my age, no fucking shit she would have felt bad Skip to a few hours ago, I was on Skype with my dad, talking about school, Letterbox, life in general, when my mom entered my room and mouthed that she wanted to talk to me so I finished the videochat with my dad and went to the livingroom to ask my mom what's up.
Then I see Letterbox's dad and they watch my eyes go wide. My mom didn't notice anything because she went on to tell me that they're getting married.
My mom and my boyfriend's dadbro are getting married. This is fucking retarded So my mom then enthusiastically goes on to give me the whole story all while he and I are, hopefully not too visibly, in shock. He was helping her out because it just so happened to be in the outlet he works in, and they apparently really hit off. So dadbro asked out my mom in his work attire and everything, real charmer this one , she said yes and then one day they apparently decided to get married. Now it's been a couple hours, I haven't told anyone, I'm about to call Letterbox, although my mom and dadbro said they were going to announce it to him next.
I don't have any friends I feel close enough to talk to about this, hell, even typing it out is difficult for me because I haven't really buffered yet and i'm shaking violently. So in a few hours, I don't know what will happen. I don't know if Letterbox is going to break the silence when my mom and dadbro go to announce their marriage to him, but I sure as hell am not going to.
I don't want to ruin it for them, but I don't want them to marry either. How the fuck am I supposed to have sex with my boyfriend, knowing that he's legally my step brother? What if we decide to move together, so it's me, mom, Letterbox and dadbro in a weird family relationship and then Letterbox and I although god forbid break up and we'll still have to live together? I don't know what to do I don't know what to say and I hope this is a dream that I'm going to wake up from, pinch me.
I just can't believe this is happening. I'll update as things progress, and yeah I'm going to call Letterbox in 5 minutes if I've calmed down by then. My mom and my boyfriend's dad just told me they are getting married, my mom doesn't know that he's my boyfriend's dad, nor does he know that she's my mom. My boyfriend is about to find out. I feel like I'm in a bad chick flick jesus fucking christ oh my lord shit Edit: Thanks for your replies.
