A woman’s family kept asking about her dating life during her sister’s engagement party. When she got tired of their intrusive questions, she came out as a lesbian. Here’s what the woman had to say:
The Beautiful Engagement Party
A woman’s sister recently got engaged to her fiance after they had been dating for a year. They were having their engagement party, which was more or less a dinner at the house with close friends and relatives.
Not Her Cup of Tea
Marriage was a big deal to her sister: she had her whole wedding and marriage planned out since she was a little kid. The woman, on the other hand, didn’t feel the same.
“I’ve never felt the excitement for weddings and kids and such things, even though I do want it at some point, and since I’m a lesbian in a homophobic family, I long ago accepted that a big fancy wedding with my father walking me down the aisle wasn’t part of the plan,” she mentioned.
Was She Jealous?
The truth didn’t sadden her much: she had accepted her reality. However, her sister, who was the only one in her family who knew about her sexuality, was convinced that she was jealous of her since she started dating her fiance.
Her Inquisitive Family
The engagement dinner was starting out great, until her family started being nosey. “My family and relatives started asking about my dating life. It was pretty harmless initially, and they asked questions such as, ‘When are you getting a boyfriend?’ and ‘Why aren’t you dating? I saw that boy hitting on you just yesterday.’”
She Was Annoyed
The questions kept getting more intrusive as the night wore on, and she wondered what was going on. However, she noticed that her sister was annoyed: though she wasn’t sure why, she continued having fun.
It Went a Little Too Far
After dessert, when the alcohol started kicking, the questions and comments became even worse. Her mother said, “I can’t believe your sister got engaged first; you’ve always been more social.” Her grandma took it up a notch when she commented that she “was the more attractive sister.”
Her Sister Was Hurt
Her sister was obviously hurt by their statements, and at some point, the woman caught her crying in the bathroom. When she tried talking to her, all her sister said was, “Happy? You’ve made my engagement all about you,” and then proceeded to avoid her for the rest of the evening.
Leave Me Alone!
After her aunt had asked for the millionth time about when she was going to get married, she wasn’t having it anymore. But by that time, she had consumed too many glasses of wine. “I told her that I’d never get a boyfriend, but when I got a girlfriend, she’d be the first to know.” After her outburst, she accidentally knocked a glass over, stormed out of the apartment, and took a cab home.
Now an Outcast
After the incident, she was told by her friend that there was a wild discussion by her family about her coming out. She said the engagement party was cut short, her sister locked herself in her room crying, and everyone went home. Now, most of the woman’s family and relatives have blocked her, and her sister sent a nasty text about how her coming out during the party “stole her thunder.” Her mother also no longer considers her family.
People Had This to Say
One person online said, “You weren’t the one making it all about you: your family was. Who says that someone is more attractive than someone else right in front of that person?”
Another said, “You shouldn’t have made a scene, and you shouldn’t have been drinking. That was not the place nor the time to come out.”
