HIS noodle? With respect, Reltzik, I'm not sure you understand how relationships work, if you think he still owns that object, anymore.

That is true. We've always been pretty private about stuff. We are pretty forgettable. Haha!

That being said this is EAS thread. I don't want to take it over. Back to celebrating! Big Grin

Glad you two gone and done it Smile.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

RE: Less than two weeks...
Well, my mom knows about Rev now. Apparently my ex-husband called her up and told her about the situation (he has known about Rev for a while now) just like he "tattled" to my mom when I deconverted - when I told him about my atheism in private and expected him to respect my privacy. Dodgy

Anyway, she is not happy. Said it is dangerous to bring a stranger into my home that I've only "talked to on Facebook" and don't know anything about, said my dad would be upset with me if he were here, warned me not to bring Rev to meet her or my brother (especially my brother) for reasons she can't say. If that was some kind of threat or like my brother might do something (which, he is a paranoid gun nut, so maybe he would, who fucking knows - they are all nuts) if Rev did meet them.

I just... I told her I was not surprised she was upset about it. Knew that would be her reaction which is why I kept my mouth shut about it. I didn't even bother trying to defend Rev to her. There is no point. She said that "this sounds like [insert my ex's name here] all over again".

On the one hand I am aloof about it. The first e-mail she sent to me just said that if I ever feel worried about my new guy to let her know and she'd try to help. Sounded all reasonable and shit, so I wrote back and said they could meet him Wednesday and we could plan a get-together then, so the next e-mail I get is the "I'm going to use your dead father to try and make you feel guilty" e-mail.

Ready to go home to Rev now. Thanks, mom. I can always count on you to be disappointed in me. Once the kids are grown and on their own, Rev and I can maybe move far away and I will cut off with my mom completely. It is just the end of the line with this stuff.

Maybe she just needs some time to process everything? My mom would probably have reacted the same way. But I think with time and after she gets a chance to meet Rev, I'm sure she'll be able to see that you are happy and that he treats you the way you should be treated.

What a sad little hiccup. Sounds like you made a good decision to keep Rev and the family apart for now. You tried to resolve her misgivings by offering to have everyone meet and get to know each other. She, in a rather ugly manner, declined. Sounds like they'll just have to keep their distance until she understands that this is permanent, and who you've chosen to spend your life with.

Hug congrats to you both!!! The updates made me soooo happy. Off to I&R for the good stuff Big Grin hehehe

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Fuck her. Don't let her have the power to ruin this for you. Love Rev and let them think what they want. They'll either come around or not. Don't live your life trying to please other people or thinking you need to live up to someone else's standard. Your standard is all that's important.
