K and I had planned to talk to the kids tonight. Tonight we were going to tell them that I am gay.
But we're not going to.
AJ is on a business trip and K is going to stay at his house with his daughter. Also she had a meeting at the church where she works. She had forgotten about that when we agreed to talk to the kids tonight.
We had a little while tonight when we were all together, but not for very long. I (and her) think that we should not be rushed and there should be time for the kids to ask questions if they need to. The next time we will have time to do that is Saturday morning.
Now I have 4 more days to stress about this. I was ready today, but I can wait. I don't want to rush. There is no benefit to that.
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.
