It can be stressful to realize you might be lesbian, gay or bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT). There are lots of lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender teens out there and lots of teens who are questioning.If you are lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender, you should be able to celebrate, not feel stressed out about it! So there are lots of places you can go to for support.That can be difficult enough for a Straight Spouse.But sometimes, even if you have solid evidence of their same-sex attraction or activities, some LGBT spouses cannot, or will not admit they’re gay.They find support and understanding by joining our support groups and exploring all the options with others who are going through similar situations.Sometimes a gay husband or lesbian wife will come out of the closet voluntarily.
On both sides, it was highly personal and sensitive,and was a case of unrequited love.
There are red flags that literally millions of Straight Spouses experience: a lack of interest in having sex with you, watching gay porn, suspicious phone calls, unexplained absences, strange financial expenses.
Once you suspect or realize your spouse is not straight, it can blind side you. The Straight Spouse Network will give you the support and understanding you need to navigate the difficult journey ahead. There are many stages a couple will go through in sorting out their ability to stay together.
