Under-stated But Not Under-aged

(I am gay, and am back from University. I’m staying with my parents for the summer holidays, along with my girlfriend. We are having some private time when my seven-year-old nephew walks in and surprises us. We decide not to lie to him, and explain that we are two women who love each other. He accepts this and takes it in his stride. Three years later, our degrees are finished and we decide to get married. We are telling my brother and sister in law.)

Brother: “I am so happy for you. I just wonder how I’m going to tell the kids that their auntie is marrying a woman.”

Nephew: *from the other room* “It’s okay, dad. I know auntie Sarah’s been a lesbian for years.” *without skipping a beat* “Can I bring a friend to the wedding?”

(It turns out, my brother his wife had been avoiding the subject for years. They needn’t have bothered! And, our wedding was fantastic!)
