Anthony, my point is that the reality for most straight spouses who are in our straight spouse group is that their gay spouse has lied to them, has had sex with men while they are married and then breaks up the marriage in an adversarial way. March 11, My ex husband told me that we were going to be friends, that he would look after our adult children and I financially and we could still be a family together. In this case, the most successful marriages reassess their relationship in light of the sexual orientation. I feel a strong urge to pursue this man, but I feel terrible guilt for betraying my family. No one has moved in with him. My wife has real control issues.
I figured that on some level, she was OK with this good-neighbor policy.
Fear of encountering social disapproval or ostracism often makes it difficult for them to seek support from family and friends. I was a magazine editor. I lent Mike and his wife a down payment to buy a house.
He is now legally married to Doug Mortimer, his partner of 24 years.
