That's an awesome story of love and respect! I'm sure your wife is relieved too.
"Your marriage is dead!" kinda made me chuckle. Like it's a person. I'm divorced, but I never thought that phrase to myself.
I never had to come out to my parents. My mom died before my ex-h and i broke up, and my dad lives 1000 miles away and never gives a crap what anyone does as long as it doesn't impact his comfort.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
