my girlfriend and my husband
here’s my husband’s boyfriend
and this is his boyfriend’s wife
now, meet her boyfriend
that’s my husband’s boyfriend’s wife’s boyfriend
that my girlfriend just met
who wants us to meet his best friend
because his best friend has only met his girlfriend
who’s the wife of my husband’s boyfriend
they grew up together
I met my husband on holiday years ago
while I met my girlfriend last year
when my husband’s boyfriend and wife moved to the city
where she met her boyfriend unusually
basically, I’d like you to meet
my family
