Your IL’s do know he’s gay, right? (Just thought to myself for a minute that maybe he’s afraid to introduce hubby to the IL’s if he hasn’t come out yet?) 

Sorry if that sounds stupid. Maybe he’s just too chicken to leave the nest cause it’s cozy, I dunno. shrug_gif

He came out to the whole family in 2011 or 2012. Him getting married was more of a shock than finding out he was gay. I suspected it for at least five years before he came out.

The whole situation is strange, which is why I won’t be surprised if March 1 comes and he’s still here.

Hmm, okay. It’s still weird that he won’t  introduce his husband to the family or move on with him. Wonder if he’s too chicken to face the real world or something. Who knows. 

Yep, he’ll probably still be there in March unless he’s physically dragged out. What a mess.

Could all this rebellion be an acting out of his insecurities about his sexuality? Or, is it both a mental health thing and a sexuality thing?

I think it’s more of a mental health issue. Whatever he has, he was never properly treated for it. (Not MIL’s fault – he was in therapy for a while at her insistence and lied the whole time.)

As for being gay, he uses that as a weapon. “I’m gay, so I deserve special treatment.” It became an offshoot of his lifelong entitlement problem.
