But let me give you some context to my story. Besides riding horses, playing volleyball and practicing my killer runway walk that I was sure to use some day, I had one dream growing up: Get married and have children. It was the epitome of life to me and I just knew I was going to make an amazing wife and mom. My dream started to come true in — I had just turned years-old when I married my best friend, Kyle. Our first few years of marriage were the toughest, but together, we learned and grew more than I knew I even had capacity for. We were always ready for the next adventure, wherever God would lead us.
I repeatedly receive questions from agitated wives who feel traumatized when they learn that their husband is homosexual. The length of their marriages range from a few years to 20 and 30 years together. Many have children, of differing ages, with their husbands. Always, this is met with shock, despair and betrayal.

Maybe your partner becomes more and more secretive and moody and you notice him or her looking at people of the same sex in a different way. As your world turns upside down, and as your partner comes out, you find yourself reeling.
