June 24, 2013: Small Talk

June 25, 2013

I realized that communication with certain family members — those who don’t accept Mara and our relationship — consists mainly of either small talk or of them complaining about something. And I also realize that this kind of communication has actually been going on well before we came out to them. But since we came out, it’s been even weirder. When I’m with them, it’s awkward, usually because I’m used to visiting them with my spouse. And although I know they have shut Mara out of their world, it’s strange that they don’t ask about my spouse. I have one. I’m married. But certain family members talk to me as if I’m single; as if I was never married. It’s getting more difficult to be with them and talk to them on the phone because of that. I understand their position, but that doesn’t make it any less awkward.
