Christina was married for 15 years before she discovered that she was attracted to women. Her husband was surprisingly supportive.
My husband was not surprised when I told him that I might be bi or gay because of my background. My father is gay and my sister is gay. Besides that, he noticed how overly emotional I would become when my best friend did not call or keep a commitment with me. And, being the supportive husband that he was, he told me right away, that I needed to go out and find out for myself if I was truly bi or gay.
So, while still living at home, I attended lesbian support groups in my area, and attended regular therapy to figure out my identity, my marriage, and my attraction for woman. And, because I like to go out night clubbing, I started venturing out to gay clubs on Saturday nights to experience the gay lifestyle.
