Divorce + Homosexuality = Best Friends

A few months ago, I, my mom, and my new boy celebrated along with my ex-husband and his boy as they became husband and husband.

It all started out so normal; I was a shy girl who met an outgoing boy. Eventually, we married. Over the next ten years, our roles as husband and wife morphed into brother and sister. Inevitably, we divorced.
Then my ex-husband met another outgoing boy. They moved in together. Soon they became neighbors with me and my mom (who was battling stage IV lung cancer).
Eventually, I also met a boy, who thankfully prefers girls.

A few weeks ago, my ex-husband, his husband and my boyfriend were there with me as I buried my mother.
This is my life. There’s no playbook to tell me how to handle it, but I think I have a pretty good handle on it so far.
