K and I told the 3 boys. My oldest and the youngest sons seemed to be fine. My middle son was quite upset. K thinks he is worried if I am gay, he might be gay too. We decided to hold off on talking to my daughter. We were not sure how to tell her in terms she would understand. We also were not sure we needed to tell her anything. There was also the fact that we were both too tired to talk to anyone else.
I do not feel the sense of relief I was hoping for.
I am gay man in his 40's who was married for 18 years to a straight woman, who is still my very best friend. We have 4 children together. She is now remarried and we still want to be supportive of each other and make a stable family for our kids.
