Wow. Daddy called this afternoon to tell me that he just got around to reading his email from a week ago and will be responding to it—but he wanted me to know something “before you go to bed tonight.” He said that he and Mom consider me and Sam to be married in every sense, and they don’t care about the legalities of the situation. They don’t approve of cohabitation, but they think it would be foolish for us to “get up and swear in front of a God (we) don’t respect” to prove a commitment we’ve already demonstrated in how we live together.
I’m amazed. Completely, totally, 100% amazed.
