Jeff, I didn't really want to tell her. It just sort of came out. I'm glad I did, and she has been supportive, but our marriage is different now. We're closer than we have ever been, but there is also a distance between us. We are best friends, and more like roommates than a married couple.
She is pushing me to explore my sexuality, and has given me permission to find a man. I thought that was what I wanted, but it's weird now for me feeling like I have to act on it. The hardest part is feeling like my marriage is over. I miss what our life used to be like.
