Relationships are tricky things. You never know who you're going to fall for or when it's going to happen. You just go out into the world with no expectations until you're hit in the heart by Cupid's arrow. But relationships became complicated in the following funny story, read why.



Texan man goes to see a psychiatrist

because of his drinking problem. He sat down on the couch in the office and the psychiatrist asked him,

“So, can you tell me the reason why you’re drinking?”

The patient took a deep breath and said to the psychiatrist, "I know exactly why I’m drinking, and I’ll tell you right now. It all started when I got married to my lovely wife. I love her to pieces, but I guess I should never have done it."

The psychiatrist is intrigued and motions for the man to go on as he takes copious notes. 

"So, I met and married a widow with a grown daughter, who then became my stepdaughter. My dad visits us regularly, and low and behold, next thing he's fallen in love with my lovely stepdaughter, and marries her. And so my stepdaughter became my stepmother.”

“Soon, my wife and I had a son who was, of course, my dad’s brother-in-law since he is the half-brother of my stepdaughter, who is now, of course, my dad’s wife and my stepmother.”

The psychiatrist raised an eyebrow, mentally doing the calculations in his head, but urged the man to continue.


“So, as I told you when my stepdaughter married my dad, she was also my stepmother! Now, since my new son is a brother to my stepmother, he also became my uncle. As you know, my wife is my step-grandmother since she is my stepmother’s mother. Don’t forget that my stepmother is also my stepdaughter.”

“But wait, it gets better: I am now my wife’s grandson. Since I’m married to my step-grandmother, I am not only my wife’s grandson, but as her hubby, I am also my own grandfather. And I'm too young to be a grandfather!!”

The psychiatrist’s mouth hung open as he listened to his patient. Finally, the psychiatrist collected himself, pulled his hidden bottle of whiskey from a drawer, pour two glasses and finally said,

“Well, now I understand why you drink. Bottoms up!”
