Well honesty should always be something we strive for, but at least you had the intention of keeping your husband's family happy.
Just say she meant she walked in on your sister... :) good luck OP
Why is it any of the family's business? If you're an adult, your sex life is your business. If the family wants to hide its collective head the sand and stay in the dark age, that is its prerogative, but the adult son/grandson shouldn't have to. I see this as a justifiable "white lie". Most couples have sex before marriage now, and it is unreasonable to assume/expect that your adult child with a fiancée will not.
I agree with you - to a point. I think it is their business because it's their sons morales. I would care if my son was getting into drugs and alcohol abuse. Call me old fashioned, but North America could rid itself of a lot of problems if premarital sex never happened.
Id just tell my husband's family that my mother has an active imagination and makes up these stories when she's drunk.
I meant to add this to my other comment, maybe the family will be disappointed in their son and never let it go. Who wants their parents to be disappointed in them? Yes, lying isn't the best thing to do sometimes but if both the husband's family and the husband and wife are happy then why not? It can't be changed so might as well make everyone happy.
I'm surprised they didn't have you guys chaperoned. I knew a religious family and all of their kids had to go on chaperoned dates no exceptions. Anyways blame the story on the fact she's drunk and has no clue what she is talking about.
It's not because the one religious family you knew had their kids chaperoned, that every religious family does that. When I was 17 and wanted to sleep with my boyfriend (a synonym for sex, I suppose), my parents just made a huuuuuge scene for a few days. And now, three years later, they just keep it with: "You know it's against our will, but it's your choice, even if it's a bad one."
