I think we are currently operating under a don't ask/ don't tell policy with our families both about our relationships and our religion. My siblings, husband, and father outed me as bisexual to my mom last Christmas Eve and the response was, "I'm going to pretend I didn't hear that." As for our friends, most everyone knows we have an "open marriage", but only a couple know who we're in a relationship with. And its so much easier to just leave it at that most of the time. Although I really wish that my husband hadn't taken our request not to out us early on in the relationship, as don't talk about this to anyone or give yourself a place to vent your frustrations when you have them. I love that he's respected that request, but wish that he had someone outside the relationship to talk to when his bi-polar triggers negative feelings.
