when you really realize that your new husband is actually your closest family member. I was at a family wedding this weekend and the photographer took a picture of the entire extended family. She wanted to group the smaller immediate families together within the big picture so she said, "Everyone take a step toward your immediate, closest relative." I was standing between my (single) mom and my husband. Both of them stepped toward me. I stepped toward my husband. It was a weird moment. That was the first time in my life that my mom did not fit that description. It must have been weird for her as well.
