A lot of people have tricky relationships with the parents of their significant other.
However, one guy is in a very awkward predicament after admitting he had sex with his girlfriend’s mum two years ago.
The guy took to Reddit to explain the situation as he admitted he was worried his girlfriend would dump him and that he would end her parents’ marriage if he came clean.
He wrote: “So let me first just say, I’m not the one in the wrong for this but I have to say it somewhere. It’s eating me alive.
“Two years ago when I was 19 I met this woman while I was working as a personal trainer. She was in her 40s and looked like a 25-year-old.
“She took an interest in me and invited me out a number of times and we had sex a few times. After one of our meet-ups she said it was wrong for someone of her age to be with me because I was to young and changed gyms.”
The guy continued: “My girlfriend and I have been together for just under a year. She’s amazing and I love her so much.
“Two months ago I met her family for the first time and it was a shock. Like she took me to the house where I had hooked up with a woman and I felt like I was being pranked.”
“Before I see her mom it hits me. I have a type and they both fit that type so it make sense, I’ve been hooking up with a single mom and I’m now with her daughter.
“Then her mom and dad pop out and we both almost s**t ourselves. I meet her parents, they’ve been married for 20 years, I realise I had been a married woman’s boy toy, I feel incredibly ashamed.”
He added: “Later that week her mum finds my number and tells me that I can never speak of what happened.
“She says that my girlfriend will hate me forever because I’ll be the one who broke up her parents. So now I’m stuck keeping this secret.
“She invited me to spend Thanksgiving and with her family and since my family is 1000 miles away and I already told her I don’t plan on going home I don’t really have an excuse to not go.
“So now I’m going to have to sit there at a table and enjoy thanksgiving dinner with the woman I had an affair with, her husband, and her daughter whom I am now in love with. I’m f**ked.”
The post has since gone viral on Reddit, with more than 41,000 people interacting with the post.
Despite the guy’s clear distress, it seemed many other social media users found a funny side to the story.
One commented: “This sounds like an 80s movie.”
While another added: “Assert your dominance over the entire family.”
A third asked: “Does she have any siblings he can f**k too?”
The tale isn’t the only Reddit story that’s hit headlines this week.
