The woman knew her son was gay but yet she would tell him, don't bring it into my house. Also, if there is an event, bring a female date. Ok, so I admit that I do not think of women in that way and I have nothing aganist people who do live their lifestyle differently from me. In fact, I used to hang out with several types...guys and women. who were friends of mine and they were very nice but the way that the woman spoke to her son like she was ashamed of him turned me off. Especially when the woman was seeing a younger man soon after the death of her husband. Plus, all the different characters who jumped into the story was hard to keep track of. I did not know who was who. The story felt a little disjointed.
