Sometimes marriages unravel slowly in a series of separations that can span years. Other times they can unravel suddenly taking one spouse by surprise, leaving them wondering why they hadn’t seen it coming:
My husband came out to me after twenty-five years of marriage and I really felt stupid because other people said they saw it but I didn’t. I saw him as my husband and a partner and it never would have crossed my mind.
Kay had been married for twenty-five years when she and her husband took a long weekend in Las Vegas. She thought they were going to renew their wedding vows; he ended up telling her he was gay.
Is there something new you’ve learned about your spouse that has surprised you?
