DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: My In-Laws Don't Know That My Dad Is Gay

DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: My In-Laws Don't Know That My Dad Is Gay

Hey Guys,
It's that time again for you to help a sister out. Here's the latest conundrum from Disturbed Daughter. What are your thoughts?

Dear Sugar
My parents got divorced five years ago when my mother walked out on my father. The reason she left him is because my father admitted to being gay after being married to my mother for 36 years.

My immediate family has just recently been introduced to my father's boyfriend (who is 36 and quite handsome). I am close to my in-laws but they have no idea the real reason for my parents divorce.

We will soon all be getting together for a big extended family dinner and my father plans to bring along his new boyfriend. Should I tell my in-laws about him in advance, or should I just let them figure it out on their own? Disturbed Daughter
