When divorce involves one spouse coming out as gay, the sexual orientation is often cited as the reason for the divorce. People nod with understanding or gasp with shock or surprise. In reality, it may not be that simple and the sexual orientation is a cloak.
I know our marriage was compromised way before my sexual orientation came up for me, it was just a catalyst for me to come out of the comfort zone. I always thought that he would at least not to have think of me with another man. He’s even admitted the tendency for him to say, “Well, I didn’t do anything to contribute to the end of this marriage. She just wants to be with a woman. And hey, sucks for me.” But he knows we had problems way before that.
