We totally just read that in my English class!

English class fail!

If your brother became your step-dad, he could be Oedipus.

The name of the man in your scenario could be any dude who appears in low-rent MILF porn.

I'm tired of people using this fucking phrase, "is his name Oedipus?" NO, HE IS NOT OEDIPUS, NOR DOES HE COME EVEN CLOSE. The only way I will ever except someone using that phrase is if the FML is about a guy having children with his mother. Anything short of that and I will bargain with Hades to send the ghost of Sophocles to rip out your eyes using a broach pin!!!

Yay, at last interesting fml comments! He could too be Oedipus, if he mudered OP's first husband, and no one realizes he was the long lost brother of OP. But OP, I'm so sorry, and shame on your mom.

Haha sorry guys, had to do it.

And this first comment may not be 100% spot on, but at least it was more clever than "win" or "that sucks" like some of the dumber first comments out there.

No it doesn't really work with Oedipus but I see where it can be linked. He was married to his new wife's daughter meaning he was his wife's son-in-law, not biologically the son so not quite Oedipus material but closeish

OP: mom, my husband and I broke up :(
Mom: I'm so sorry! Let me go talk to him!
OP: okay...
*a few hours later*
Mom: (comes home)
OP: WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? I thought you were just talking to him??
Mom: well, we did a bit more than talking... ;)
Mom:he proposed to me!


Wait a second. Can't he only be her step dad if he obtains custody of her? And since they were married shes too old to be in a parents custody...

Look on the bright side OP, he's just the creep both you and your mom married.

Yeah it's from a movie called The Stupids, He sings it at the end. And that episode of Futurama he goes back in time and has sex with his grandmother.

Alright I have some learning for you guys. It is not originally from futurama, nor some movie. It's an honest to god country song from long ago by a guy named Little Jimmy Dickens. Radio play, records, the whole nine yards. Good old country music...

Or if both you and your mom had kids with him, that'd be a hard and confusing tree to get done.
Outsider "Oh, you guys look so cute. Are you cousins?"
Op's Kid "Oh, he's my brother/uncle and she's my sister/aunt"
Outsider "Er... o_O"

Damn, not only is that weird and awkward, but it's digusting... Because your ex husband had the guts to go after your mother and your mother crossed it & went with your husband...


You ever hear that old song? It goes, "I'm my own Grandpa, I'm my own Grandpa. It's funny to know, but it really is so! I'm my own Grandpa." I remember hearing it when I was younger. This situation really reminded me of it. Poor kids.

Parents couldn't dictate what music I listened to as a child, at the age of 5 I was listening to speed metal, hard rock, and alternative rock. Maybe this is the same case of a rebel child.

Oh great, another idiot from another country who stereotypes the same nation that they have fought side-by-side for years.

Why won't you kill in the mirror and insult yourself instead of stereotyping AN ENTIRE NATION.
