Dear Straight Talk: I’m 16 and have a 13-year-old sister. Our parents are divorced and we’ve always lived with our mom. We used to see Dad every other weekend, but he moved, so now we just see him two weeks in the summer and one week over Christmas. We still talk a lot and have a good relationship. We’re scheduled to visit soon.
Dad lives in a one-bedroom apartment, and when we we’re there, we stay in the bedroom and he sleeps on the couch. He just told us he is “coming out of the closet” and his partner “George” is living with him. They plan on getting married now that it’s legal. I asked what the sleeping arrangements will be and he said “we’ll work it out.” We’re not that surprised to find out Dad is gay and we can accept that. However, we’re uncomfortable staying in a one-bedroom apartment along with his partner when we don’t even know what the sleeping arrangements will be. We would like to get out of the visit, but we don’t want to hurt our dad. What can we do? — Sacramento
