Coming Out to Your Children

Monday March 31, 2014

coming out to children

Dear Lesbian Life:
I have been in my lesbian relationship for going on 3 years. My son is almost 9 and my daughter is 7 1/2. They love my girlfriend. They know we love each other but we have not told them any detail. We have been very gradual with how much time we all spend together over the years. Lately, we have been feeling as though we would like to progress our relationship and within the next year or so, move in together. She has been spending more time with us and we have been doing sleepovers. My kids are always asking when will she move in with us to which my response has always been "these things take time :)".

My ex has been fairly supportive of our relationship and knows that we need to sit down and have a discussion with our kids about my life, so that we can progress. I am wondering if you have any information that you could share with me about coming out to my children?

Updates on Marriage Equality

Sunday March 30, 2014

couple married in MichiganIt's been a good week for marriage equality. As of today, March 29, 2014, same-sex couples can get legally married in England and Wales, bringing the number of countries to legalize same-sex marriage to 16.

And in Michigan a Federal judge overturned Michigan's ban on same-sex marriage on Friday, March 21, 2014. Approximately 300 couples were married on Saturday before a the Court of Appeals put a stay on the ceremonies. Although Michigan is not yet recognizing the marriages, the federal government will.
"These families will be eligible for all relevant federal benefits on the same terms as other same-sex marriages," said Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder's decision is similar to one in Utah, where more than 1,000 same-sex couples were legally married before the U. S. Supreme Court issued a stay on a lower court ruling same-sex marriage legal.

Unsure Alice Doesn't Know her Sexual Orientation

Wednesday March 26, 2014

unsureUncertainty is tough. No matter what it is. People who've gotten scary medical news sometimes say the toughest part is not knowing. Waiting to find out if you got into the college of your choice or hearing if you got the jobs is stressful and difficult. So is not knowing what your sexual orientation is. Especially when it seems like everyone else around you has it figured out. That's the case with 25-year-old Alice. She's pretty sure she's not straight, but what is she?
