As for the mother, she will accept it or not. Her main focus will probably be on the happiness of her daughters. If they accept the relationship, then she may evebtually accept it.

Good luck.
Thanks quath for your wisdom! You raise really good points! Thanks also for rising above our discomfort and judgment of this situation. I for one struggle with it but am eager to learn and think of it differently.
