A mother’s conflict between standing up for her beliefs and protecting her son leads to a heated confrontation with her daughter’s boyfriend and the revocation of his proposal, causing a rift in the family.
A Love Story
Jaelinn and James had been dating for two years, and he had been living with her family for one. Despite living only a few miles away, their families had never met in person. Jaelinn’s mother didn’t dislike James, but she wasn’t a fan of him either.
Radically Right Wing
He treated Jaelinn poorly at times, was short-tempered with her, and had a condescending tone. His attitudes toward everything were radically right-wing, which was the polar opposite of Jaelinn’s mother.
Jaelinn’s mother’s biggest problem with James was his attitude toward her son, Devon, who was bisexual. James never said anything overtly hateful, but his phobias were obvious. The mother hated this issue as she had always supported her son in his sexuality. It was never an issue to her and she didn’t want James to start making her son, Devon, feel like he couldn’t be open and free in his own home.
A V-Day Proposal
Jaelinn’s mother agreed to let James invite his family for a Valentine’s Day proposal to Jaelinn, but the last few weeks leading up to the event had been pure hell. James had been making demands and acting like he was nervous, but he didn’t stop. He wasn’t an easy person to be around at the best of times but this was getting out of hand.
He Said WHAT?!
The last straw came when James asked Jaelinn’s mother to make sure Devon didn’t “act too gay” in front of his parents. Jaelinn’s mother lost her temper, revoked the invitation, and told James to find somewhere else to propose. She refused to have her son spoken about in such a hateful manner.
Her Daughter Was Furious
This caused an uproar in the house, and Jaelinn was furious with her mother. She said James changed his mind about proposing to her altogether, and it was all her mother’s fault. It was never her mother’s intention to make the proposal fall through. She was simply trying to protect both of her kids to the best of her ability.
The Son Disagreed
At first, Devon supported Jaelinn’s mother, but he later changed his mind and said she should have kept quiet and put up with it a little longer. Jaelinn’s mother was conflicted and wondered if she was the jerk for ruining her daughter’s surprise proposal. She also feared that Jaelinn would move out with James, and she wouldn’t be able to protect her.
Torn and Confused
The mother was so torn. She thought she’d done the right thing but speaking up in order to protect her son from hateful homophobia. However, after her son said she shouldn’t have said anything she’s incredibly confused by the whole situation.
What a Mess
The situation was a mess, and Jaelinn’s mother was unsure of what to do. She felt like she had to stand up for her son and her beliefs, but she didn’t want to ruin her daughter’s happiness. She hoped that eventually, Jaelinn would understand her perspective and forgive her.
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “If he doesn’t want to propose because you refuse to make your son “not act gay”…he’s the problem here – forget all the other stupid stuff you put up with…He’s literally telling your daughter that because her brother is bisexual, he doesn’t want to marry her.”
More Internet Responses
Another person commented, “He’s a bigot and homophobe and wants you to put Devon in the closet so his bigoted and homophobic family is happy. Do you want to support that kind of person?”
A Final Comment
This last person had this to say, “I guess he does not want to marry her anymore because he realized that you will stand up for your children. This would make it too difficult for him to treat your daughter worse than he already does and manipulate her to just please him.”
