Investigating the effects of “brokeback marriages”:

On June 1, 2000, Mrs. Remmele, then 31, discovered her husband’s profile on the Web site gay.com. The couple stayed up all that night weeping and talking. Soon afterward, 10 days before she gave birth to her second child, Mrs. Remmele’s husband went off to spend a couple of nights with his new boyfriend. “I tried to talk him out of it, and he left anyway,” Mrs. Remmele said. “I was devastated.” Three months later the couple divorced.

    These men who marry women and have families and then realize, “wait, I’m gay, I need to find a man and let my real self emerge” seem to be very self-consumed.

    Not only because of what their wives have to face and go through but what about their children? it’s bad enough when parents divorce but to have to tell your children “Its because daddy wants another MAN.” Just seems beyond cruel. Identity crisis be damned. When you have children, their emotional well being should come before yours.

    Amen…and I’d say the same about couples who split and re-mate with either sex just because they feel like it. Kids are more important than that, and they won’t be in their parents’ home for long. 20 years goes by in the blink of an eye.

    Somehow the married gays think they get a free pass to have another partner. What part of ’till death do us part’ did they not understand when they agreed to be monogamous.

    Monogamy doesn’t mean having one partner of each gender simultaneously.

    I want to see the jilted women sue these marauders for entering the marriage contract under false premises.

    Hillary could start it off to set an example. But if course that would hurt her election chances.

    you know, these people are not “doing this” to someone… not everyone acts on these feelings, and many people do it with full knowledge of their spouse if they do. I know this, as I am a married woman who loves women. I did not marry knowing this, I had no idea. It was not anyone in particular who made me aware of this, nor do i want to be this way. But the fact is, I am married to a man, and I love women. I have yet to act on these feelings, and my husband has full disclosure of my feelings. It isn’t a black and white issue, though. I just thought I’d point this out.
