Well.. It's not the only reason.. but.... I would have been enough for most people!
B & I hadn't been married too long and were still in the "honeymoon phase" of our relationship when we went to a large family get-together/birthday party at his uncles house.
You have to understand how large and testosterone-filled his family is.
B is one of three brothers.
His father is one of three brothers.. etc etc etc...
All the men were there, all their spouses and children were there.
Grandmother G was there ...
lots and lots of people. (mostly men!)
We were all crammed into the small kitchen watching Uncle T blow out his birthday candles.
B was standing behind me.
I leaned over to grab my drink and sing Happy Birthday.
When I leaned back onto my husband I decided I was going to be a little bit naughty and reached behind me and gave him a little squeeze. (you know... down there... where only a wife is allowed to squeeze)
Wow Thanks!.. he whispered into my ear. But wait.... it was not my new husbands voice in my ear.
It was my new Father-in-Law!!
I guess B moved while I was leaning away from him and his father stepped in to watch the birthday boy.... He sure got more than he expected!
I almost died! He wasn't too upset by it. as a matter of fact, judging by the smile on his face, I think he got a kick out of it.
Of course everyone in the room saw/heard what I had done.
For the next 7 years of my life this unfortunate event was brought up at each and every family get together. I knew I would never be able to live down the fact that I felt up my father-in-law.
So.. I divorced him.
ok.. maybe there was more to it than that.... but this event is right on up there close to the top of the list of most embarrassing moments.
