I've never came out to my dad. And he's always talking about me getting married, how old I think I'll be when I do, what kinda of wedding I want, kids, etc. He's always asked those kinda of questions. And today, me, my brother, and my dad were working together painting some cabinets. My brother (Brother #3) was in a bad mood and stuff, and so he was being extra cranky towards me cuz I was being the good kid.
So we were painting and my dad brings up the whole getting married thing like usual. Here's kinda the situation:
Dad: "So, when is my little girl getting married?"
Me: *pretends I didn't hear*
Dad: "So, do you want a big wedding?"
Brother: "Yeah, but only if she's getting married to Lindsey (just a random name he chose to signify it's a girl I want to marry)
Dad: "What? Stop being stupid, you know it's only supposed to be a man and woman like god intended. There's no such thing as woman, woman & man, man.
Brother: "Haha, Dad, just kidding"
Me: "Um, Dad, so am I painting this right?.." *and continues to change the subject*
Oh gosh, I felt like stabbing my brother with the screwdriver. He's such an ass. That was such a scary and heartbreaking moment. Everytime my dad mentions weddings I get nervous and I just nod to whatever he says. Sometimes I try to make him think I don't want to get married and focus on a career, but everytime he brings up my husband, blah, blah, blah. Grrrr. I hate it.
And coming out of the closet to him? Forget it. He's the one that will be putting me through college. Oiy. But, I'm gonna have to break my dad's heart eventually if I want to have a family :(
