I have been married for 17 years. The marriage has been good at times and really bad at others. My husband is often moody and depressed and often hostile for reasons that I can not understand.

This is the fifth and final story of a five-part series on how alternative relationships are reshaping love in Canada. What she found changed their marriage forever. Don had been unfaithful.
A collection of stories written by men and women in mixed-orientation relationships. These are stories of couples who stayed together after the husband or wife came out, an outcome that is possible but is too often overlooked.

So what's it like? Awesome, predominantly. Being bi and married to my dude is a wonderful and fulfilling situation, mostly because he is excellent and accepts all my parts, including the bits that like another gender.
Email Address. What do I do? I get many letters from all kinds of people — gay, straight, men, women, and everything in between — who suspect their husbands, wives, partners may be secretly bisexual, or have discovered that they are bisexual. The first thing is to understand that bisexuality is not a death sentence.
