We are not a protected class. If you are legally married like I am and have a relationship outside your marriage it is adultery. It is illegal and you could face jail time. I could be charged with bigamy. All it woul take is one very squeaky wheel ruin your life. It doesn't matter how many parents loved you as their child's teacher they may change their view when they learn of your lifestyle choices.
Even if they do not manage to make you lose your job your reputation will be in tatters. One search into Google will bring it all up over and over again. What about your partners can their lives take the blow.
Murf is very much a parent as Butch is and no one blink's twice when my kids talk about him. But that is because we maintain two separate households and My kids call Murf by his name. They assume what makes them comfortable.
40 yo straight female
Married in the eyes of the government to Butch since 2001...
Murf my monogamous second husband has been with me since May of 2012.
In a V relationship with an average 60/40 split of time. Only due to Murf's and Butch's crappy work schedules.
