Yes, Lindsay wanted her family to accept her relationship with Mel .. they had Gus for fk sake .. how much more serious does it have to be? But she NEVER wanted to fit into her family's hetero concept.

Sorry Daggi, no matter how we look at this, the scene makes no sense at all!

I don't think she did it because she wanted to fit in, I think she was doing it FOR her sister. I agree that Lindsay never wanted to fit in the hetero concept, but she wanted to make her sister happy for her night.

Unfortunately, like anytime we compromise our principals, resentment sets in. Lindsay just couldn't take it anymore. Her sister's marriage(s) were a farce as far as commitment went, and Lindsay's marriage to Mel meant more.

Do not understand why Mel went along with the charade? OK Lindz is a wuss but Mel certainly isn't .. WTF would she agree to be something she isn't? She wouldn't .. especially not for this sham of a ceremony!

Mel went along with it because she thought it would make Lindsay happy.

That is a very sad thing to do ...

I won't bump this one again (it was on p5) .. there's clearly no interest.

Since you bumped this thread…this is my third response, so I'm not sure what you mean by "there's clearly no interest."

I don't think it's sad to want to make your partner happy at all.

I think she did nit not only to make her sister happy. I also think her parents were the ones who told her to do so.... and she went for it because she wanted to please all and not watned to start a riot ón her sisters wedding day...

And maby Mel did it, because she didn't want Lindsay to be alone in the Lions pit, and wanted to stnad at her partnerse side if something bad happend

They are living together in a committed relationship and they have Gus .. so, sorry, I just don't get why either of them would go through with such a charade under those circumstances.

Their relationship wasn't a family secret!

it wasn't to the family, but probably to a lot of the other guests...

I'm not sure why you think it's acceptable to have to be someone you're not ...

Mind you, given the outcome, I imagine that CowLip intended it to be another of their cautionary tales!

I don't think it's acceptable, I was just trying to explain the reason why they did it..

and believe me you do a lot for the people you love, in this case Mel for Linds, and if you want to be accepted in your family, like Linds, you too do a lot... I think that Linds parents told them, that if they want to com to the wedding they have to pretend to be straight and come with a date... there would be no other reason

Exactly. Being in a marriage for almost 27 years, we've both compromised a lot over the years. For example: I've always hated to go away out of state (on vacation ) to visit relatives. IMO, that's not a vacation at all. But I've had to grin and bear it for the entire week and smile visiting them and just feeling uncomfortable the entire time.

It's not that I don't love them, but running all over the place with 3 kids is not my idea of fun. My hubby loves it though, so I have to love it for him.

Fine! I give up on this one! But having to deny that your partner is your partner is NOT the same as having to grin and bear family obligations.

Like I said, given the end of the scene I'm sure CowLip intended it as one of their fables!
