I am separated for the past six years after my husband made the announcement following a family bereavement that he was not happy any more in the marriage and he did not want to live a lie. We were married for 22 years. We tried marriage counselling but after four sessions he said there was no point in continuing. I offered him an open marriage as I did not want him to leave and break up our family but he left us and we both started our new separate lives. I have now discovered that he is homosexual and he has told me that this was the reason why he left our marriage.
As he came out of the closet, I felt like I was being forced in. No-one understood. No-one really knew what to say. When he came out, he was greeted with encouragement and affirmation. There were support groups for gay married men, forums where he could discuss what he was going through. He was finally being true to himself, forging a new identity, taking his destiny into his own hands. I was left alone to pick up the pieces.
