Yep-they get along fine.
Interestingly-we're out-so it's moot.
But our 13 year old spends a LOT of time at some Bible camps that he has an interest in. They would NOT approve.
We have never told him not to say anything, nor do we try to keep anything secret.
But they don't ask and he doesn't offer.

OFTEN people will assume what seems safe to them "is this your uncle" or "is this your aunt" and kids will respond with a "yeah" or "no" laughing and they stop asking questions.

But if people ask me-I just answer point blank. Shrug.

Lying got me in a lot of trouble in my relationships in the past. I prefer to just stick to what is easiest-being honest, true and real about who I am. People who don't approve or don't like it-leave.

Last month when my youngest graduated Kindergarten he wanted everyone there. Mom, Dad, and Murf. He just introduced everyone by who they were. No one batted an eye. In today's world no one is going to think twice when a kid introduces his Dad and Mom's boyfriend. I am sure they assume we are divorced. Whatever...

Honestly my kids haven't batted an eye about the situation. They just roll with it.

Our youngest does that. And as you said-people really don't take note in that moment.

What has caught attention, is when we've run into the same person in the grocery store at different times-and they have seen me holding hands or kissing one guy-and then the other a different time and it repeats.

But no one has said anything thus far.

Of course-friends and family know.
