  • I wouldn't be mad. It's their choice. I would even march and fight for them to have the same respect that a married man and women have.

  • I would tell him that he was kicked out of the will and to never call me mom again........

    THEN I would tell him GOT YA! I would love him no matter what or who he loves..but I would be freaked out inside..

  • My 22 yr. old dd got fed up with boys so she said she thought she might be gay, so I said whatever, all relationships have their ups and downs. I really couldn't care less, as long as she is happy.

  • My junior -in- college, mechanical engineer major has a girlfriend whom I'm sure lives with him, much to my dismay, and my 9 yr. old stares at grown women like they are pizzas, especially ones with big boobs and lots of make up.

    No problems here................................

  • I would support and love my boys NO differently than I did before i knew. Honestly, as long as theyre happy- whats the problem? The only thing id be bummed about is the possibility of grandchildren, but hey- theres always adoption and surrogates if they ever want kids.

  • To the first poster, i'm glad you would support them, but you do realize homosexuality is not a choice right?
    Me? I wouldn't have any issues! I'd accept their partners just as much as I would if they were heterosexual As long as their partners treat them right, and they're happy, then who am I to judge them?

  • Your child is always going to be your child but you don't have to agree with his/her decision that's like you being a budha and your child becomes a christian. You love your child but you leave that their seperate life
