First, a little background: I recently started dating my high school girlfriend’s then-best friend. Even though the relationship between my high school girlfriend and I didn’t work out, we stayed in touch as friends over the years and I attended her wedding. Her best friend from high school (a fellow classmate of ours) also showed up to the wedding and we hit it off beautifully. We’ve been hanging out as close friends since August, and officially agreed we were in a relationship a couple weeks ago. For purposes of this thread, I’ll call her “Louise.” The funny part is, Louise and I didn’t say two words to each other all through high school, even though our class only contained 32 people (it was a small college prep school). It wasn’t out of any sort of animosity or dislike; we just had nothing in common, other than that I was dating her best friend.
Anyway, before we started seeing each other, Louise and a close female friend of hers had decided to marry so the close female friend (I’ll call her “Debbie”) could register under Louise’s health insurance. Louise is completely heterosexual, and Debbie is bi. There are no plans to live together or do anything other than get a marriage license at the courthouse. To my knowledge, they have never engaged in any sort of sexual behavior with each other. Louise is in her 30’s and Debbie is in her 40’s, and both are highly educated professionals with advanced degrees.
They both have asked me how I feel about this, and I told them I’m not sure yet, as I haven’t really thought about it too much. They want me to be cool with it before they go ahead and do it. If I object, they likely would cancel the plans.
Go ahead, ask away.
