I honestly would not be able to hold my tongue, but i’m a liberal Texan who couldn’t stand that type of crazed extremism growing up. Something immature along the lines of ” Well, I think your comments show a lack of respect for rational thought” would probably come out, and it would be a huge horrible scene.

Since you guys are living with family, you probably don’t have a choice.

It’s rough since you are a respectful and conservative woman. All I can say is revel in the care and standards of your grandpa! Not too many people let alone men care about modesty, and respect, let alone upholding it in their families. I’m sure back in his time, sitting under a blanket together would indicate certain emotions and feelings, not appropriate for the unmarried.

 Hang in there! Your marriage will be here before you know it and your rewards will be ten fold 😉

@Eva Peron: I agree. My husband’s grandparents are very similar to @NatAndTy‘s so I understand her frustration. That said, they act very differently when you are married and are just looking out for your best interests. While it may seem outdated and really annoying right now, just know that your grandfather cares.
