The beginning of the end

Since my coming out, my wife has realised that we’re approaching the end and she’s starting to take control over what happens to her. This is a good thing although hard on both of us emotionally.  It seems inevitable now that we’re going to split up, despite still being good friends and getting on. Estate agents and housing associations have been contacted as we try to find a way to separate cleanly and minimise the hurt to our daughter.

Most days are desperately sad now. Not long to go.

    I’ve said it on Twitter and I’ll say it again here (in slightly more than 140 characters!), good luck with everything. For all my other issues, I don’t have a partner to consider, but I can understand how much harder this makes your decisions. Hope you can remain on good enough terms in the future for your child, and that your family will support you too.

    Keep writing, as blogs like yours are incredibly valuable for someone like me who’s considering transition, and can draw from your first hand experiences to help decide what path to take.

    Stay strong

    Hi Lisa, I share some of your pain, as you know I’m at an earlier stage of exploring transition and am going through similar issues with my wife although I have 3 kids to think about too – it’s that awful feeling of knowing that by becoming who you know you are you are going to hurt others in the process but if yo don’t you will hurt them and yoruself even more.

    Ok so I don’t know you that well but from what I do know you’re not a malicious or nasty type and I relaly hope that you can stay on good terms with your wife and that things will be ok with your child – that’s the thing that worries me the most.

    Stay strong and lots of hugs xx
