Now don’t get us wrong: relationships have struggles. But being in a same-s*x relationship can come with its own fair share of unique problems. Here, we list some of the struggles of being in a same-s*x relationship!
When people ask who the “woman” is in the relationship, or the “man.” Um. It doesn’t work that way, folks.
People always think your’e siblings instead of lovers.
Because you are in a same-s*x relationship, people assume you only like to hang out with other same-s*x couples.
You have to figure out what works best for you and your partner when it comes to the deed. (This is basically a struggle for all couples.)
Sometimes people think your partner is your parent, which can be absolutely mortifying.
No matter what, people are always trying to fix you up with someone.
If you want to adopt or have a kid, that’s a life-changing and difficult struggle all on its own.
People always expect you and your partner to fit a certain stereotype.
For a while, you couldn’t get married. Thankfully, that’s now a thing of the past.
Also, people jump back to stereotypes and think you are both always cheating on one another.
If you are in a l**bian relationship, you will be the butt of jokes that sound a lot like, “You’ve been dating for two weeks now, time to get the moving truck!” Or, “It’s been a month, are you going to get married now?”
Depending on where you are in the U.S., some people will give you dirty looks because they don’t understand that love is love
Being in a same-s*x relationship isn’t much more of a struggle than being in a heteros*xual relationship. It’s just that people think there’s a problem.
Those people who think there is a problem create the problem.
Simply put, love is love. You should be proud of who you are and who you love.
