11:10 Question of the Week

"My son has been married to a lovely girl for 10 yrs & they have 2 children. My daughter-in-law has been sexually involved with a female & she can't decide if she wants to remain with my son or go with the female. What are the chances that she has always been bisexual? My son told her she had to make a choice, either her or him, but a triangle is not even a consideration. She has devastated the entire family including her mother, father & sister & they have been put in a compromising position because they don't want to loose their grandchildren or their daughter & I don't want to lose my only grandson & his sister. "
